Protect + Clarify Daily Face Lotion is a potent moisturiser that calms, hydrates and protects to an SPF 15 level. Clémence Organics’ first sun-protective moisturiser is rich in zinc oxide that glides on invisibly to create a barrier against harsh UV rays. The added protective effects of carotenoid-rich Karanga Seed Oil and microalgal elements create multi-level sun protection that repairs and nourishes summer skin. Protect + Clarify Daily Face Lotion is ideal for those who spend most of their day in the office/indoors but are constantly being told they need some level of sun protection, even if they only spend 15-30 minutes in the sun.


Apply a small amount to face, neck and décolletage after cleansing and toning skin. Can be applied on top of Repair Face Serum and under makeup.

good face cream with SPF15 coverage

I like the product for its gentle and rich hydrating effect. It brightens my face slightly after applying it. But SPF15 is not high enough as I live in a tropical country. So I use it with another sunscreen with SPF30 or higher.

Thank you for your 5 star review Serene.

Every day lotion

I have been purchasing this lotion for a few years now and use it most mornings. I follow Bridget’s advice in applying a small amount to fingertips/palms and then pat it on which works best for me. I love that it has SPF coverage for everyday use without the thickness of other lotions. When there was an issue with a recent batch I was contacted and it was generously rectified and customer service was excellent as always.

Thank you for your 5 star review Kate. We have tweaked the formulation a little so the issue with the previous batch is resolved now.

I have used this lotion in the past but lately I have found that it turns white on my skin ….and when rubbed comes off in little flakes…my daughters commented on my white face!! I thought that maybe my hands were damp when applying, but tried with dry hands and had the same effect. I also thought that the tube I had might have been older…so tried the recently purchased one and the same thing happened. I wondered if the product had been changed?

Thank you so much taking the time to give us this feedback Robyn.

We have notices that a small amount of people had similar issues with pilling.
For best application we recommend the following tips:
1. Exfoliating regularly.
2. Shaking/massaging the tube before use to mix the zinc with the rest of the ingredients.
3. Rubbing the product between your hands to melt and combine before application.
4. Pressing, rather than rubbing, into skin.
5. Pilling can be avoided by following the steps above as well as ensuring skin is moist before application. This can be achieved with either a serum or spritz on skin before application.

We have slightly tweaked the formulation for our Protect + Clarify Daily Face Lotion to address this issue and hopefully resolved the pilling for the customers experiencing it.

I’m quite allergic to sunscreen and a lot of zinc sunscreens seem to warm on my face as the day goes on leaving me quite flushed. This however glides on beautifully , absorbs well and is comfortable all day. I really enjoy using it.

Thank you Bridie for your review!
