Cellceuticals Photodefense is a cream that protects skin from the damaging rays of the sun. The cream has a rating of 55+ SPF against both UVA and UVB rays. Cellceuticals chose to add vitamin D to the formula, supposedly for added protection against the sun, but with medical research showing too few people obtain enough vitamin D on a daily basis, we believe there are other reasons the company has chosen to add vitamin D. The body can produce vitamin D naturally, but that requires staying in the sun for 10 to 30 minutes without sunscreen. The sun reacts with the skin and produces massive amounts of vitamin D. Some experts believe the benefit of increasing natural production of vitamin D through unprotected contact with the sun outweigh the risks.

Product Details

The Cellceuticals Photodefense product description does not list the ingredients in the formula. We were able to locate a complete list of ingredients online. We found no parabens in the product – an excellent thing, but we did find some ingredients associated with negative side effects.

Cyclopentasiloxane is classified in Canada as a toxic with potential harmful effects. There are also animal studies linking this ingredient to tumor formation in animal studies. Tribehenin PEG-20 Esters is another ingredient of interest. There is some concern that this ingredient may be tainted with ethylene oxide or 1, 4-dioxane, in some products. These ingredients are known to cause skin irritation and possible cancer. There is also concern that PEG-100 Stearate may also be tainted with ethylene oxide or 1, 4-dioxane.

We were unable to find substantial consumer reviews for this product. The single review we found claimed the sunscreen is greasy and way too expensive. The going price for a small 2-fl-oz bottle is $50.

The Good

  • Protects against damaging effects of the sun.
  • Contains no parabens.

The Bad

  • May contain ingredients associated with harmful side effects and/or cancer.
  • None of the ingredients are listed on the official website.
  • The price is much higher than comparable sunscreens.
  • There are no reviews for the product on the official website.

The Bottom Line

Cellceuticals Photodefense contains no parabens, a huge selling point for a skin care product, but we suspect there are less expensive products on the market for far less than this product. If you are looking for a sunscreen for sensitive skin that does not contain parabens, you can find one without potentially carcinogenic ingredients.

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this!
