Vitamin C itself does not cause irritation, instead, compounds called furanocoumarins found in ingredients rich in vitamin C are the culprits in triggering photosensitivity and/or photodermatitis. Both our Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist and Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil contain very, very low levels of furanocoumarins to ensure the lowest risk of irritation. On the flip side, Vitamin C in sunscreen formulas actually helps sunscreens be more effective by scavenging free radicals that get generated by UV rays.
