This UV-protector is a light pink coloured fluid that is easy to apply.

The two versions developed for the EU/Asia-market and the US/North-America area are two different products in the terms of emulsion-type and the UV-filters and main emollients are used.

The EU version is a water-based fluid that contains the UV-filters OMC (Octinoxate), Tinosorb M, Tinosorb S and Uvinul A Plus. It has a high PPD/PA rating due to these UV-filters. The product contains an emollient of natural origin that gives fluidity to the final product but it might be too rich and too moisturizing for people with oilier skin or in a warmer/humid climate.
The fluid will after application, quickly settle into an elegant finish on the skin, albeit somewhat a whitish cast will be predictable. This is due to the Tinosorb M-filter. This will also make the application of the product a bit more difficult and some will find it will leave a drying film on the skin.
This is one of the best UVA-filters today and only available in products intended for the EU, Australia and Asian market. The same is valid for the Tinosorb S and Uvinul A Plus filters too.

This is the reason for the formula marketed in the US to be a completely different one.
This is also a very fluid sunscreen that will leave a lighter feel after application than the EU-version. It is a Water-in-Silicone formula.
It contains high amount of Zinc Oxide for even UVA protection, Benzophone-3 and OMC (Octinoxate). While it also achieves the SPF 50 rating, this combination will have a lower PPD/PA rating, just around 12 compared to PPD 19 for the EU-version.
This product contains cyclopentasiloxane as the main emollient that will leave an elegant and natural “skin-like” finish after application. It is a volatile silicone, while the main emollient in the EU version is a natural oil-based fluid that will leave a more perceptible feel on the skin after application.

Both products are excellent as daily UV-protectors and elegant enough to wear them under make-up or alone.
All filters used in both versions are highly photo-stable and exceptionally mild (with the exception of Benzophone-3).
The EU-version earns five stars for the outstanding composition of the UV-filters for providing synergistic and balanced, truly broad-spectrum protection in the UVB, UVAII and UVAI area. While maintaining an elegant application and finish on the skin yet being mild.

(The US-formula is not as challenging formulation due to the "natural" elegance of cyclopentasiloxane and zinc oxide. It has an elegant finish without the need of being a "clever" formulator.)

EU-version PA is at 19.3. (US PA 11.9). I have also uploaded the UV-Protection Profile for both versions to illustrate the actual protection one will get from using these daily UV-protectors. (The graphs show the protection curve when the product is applied at the standard 2 mg/cm². In reality, most people will apply half the amount 1 mg/cm².)
