GET YOUR SKIN GUARD UP WITH ULTRA VIOLETTE

When it comes to saving your skin from premature ageing, nothing is more important than three simple letters: SPF. The sun’s UV rays are by far the biggest cause of environmental damage to the skin, and all the expensive cosmeceuticals we apply are doing very little if we aren’t using SPF. JOYCE Beauty has you covered with Ultra Violette, the Australian brand that specialises in beautifully hydrating and makeup-friendly skin essentials with broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. The ultimate hybrid of skincare and sun protection that’s air-soft and non-greasy, Ultra Violette ‘skinscreens’ are made to slot right into your daily morning ritual, after moisturiser and before foundation. Each product guards against free-radical damage as well as the complete solar spectrum, including UVA + UVB, infrared, blue, and visible light. It’s nothing like the sand-covered, eye-stinging, cement-like SPF of your childhood: Ultra Violette is next-gen, next-level SPF that’s luxurious to apply. This isn’t about beach holidays but about wanting to wear SPF every. Single. Day. Plus, the entire range is produced in sun-kissed Australia – where sunscreen needs to work the hardest.

AN AUSTRALIA-APPROVED SKIN SHIELD
With melanoma the third-most common cancer diagnosed in Australia, Australian sunscreen must meet the stringent requirements of the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) – one of the toughest testing standards in the world. All of Ultra Violette’s products are TGA registered and classified as ‘therapeutic, primary sunscreens’, which means their main purpose is sun protection rather than a cosmetic product containing SPF. Most international brands aren’t permitted to sell their SPF in Australia because their products aren’t proven in the same rigorous way that ultra-high-protection Australian SPF brands like Ultra Violette are.
