Botanicals + Biotechnology = Sunday Riley
It wasn’t luck or coincidence that led Sunday Riley’s sophisticated line of cosmetics to the runway shows of Jason Wu, Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham, Lanvin and Helmut Lang. And it wasn’t also that which made her makeup products a must-have among supermodels, socialites and celebrities worldwide. In fact, before her foray into the makeup scene, she was already a well-known eco-conscious skin care alchemist, integrating Native American botanical ingredients with time-honored skin care knowledge and practices handed down to her by her grandmother. The result: A range of high-performance skin care products designed to prevent and correct aging skin.
Sunday’s skin care products adhere to one simple formula: Detoxification + 99% Pure Anti-Aging Actives = Glowing Skin. Detoxification on a cellular level enables the skin to regenerate faster and glow exponentially. This is the role of NV-5 Ageless Complex, Sunday’s proprietary blend of 5 Native American botanicals used traditionally (and now proven scientifically) to detoxify, heal and regenerate skin. This, along with each product’s unique blend of active ingredients—which are not only 99% pure but are also used at maximum concentration—completes her formula for a healthy, radiant and ageless skin.
The same efficacious formula makes up Sunday’s Cashmere SPF 30 Sun Defense, a 100% mineral sunscreen that not only protects against sun damage and pollution, but also smoothes, brightens and nourishes the skin. Mineral sunscreens work to block UV rays from penetrating your skin and reflect them away. Unlike chemical sunscreens, mineral-based ones are photostable, meaning they remain effective and don’t breakdown when exposed to sunlight. But unlike other mineral sunscreens, Cashmere SPF 30 contains cashmere protein, wheatgrass, ginseng and squalene—botanical ingredients known for their softening and nourishing properties. And because this sunscreen is perfectly sheer and weightless, it leaves a luxurious texture and finish that are perfect under makeup!
