Argan Oil, has been added to the new formula of the Dry Oil Clear UltraMist Sunscreen - the argan oil in this new formula leaves skin feeling silky-smooth and moisturized. Now when choosing a sunscreen you’ll definitely think beyond just UV protection.

The collection features a Naturale Brightening Shampoo, Conditioner, and Lightening Gelee Treatment. The Solar Blonde Naturale Lightening Gelee Treatment is a leave-in treatment that works great on its own, but gets an extra boost when exposed to a little bit of heat.
