Skinvest unveils their new range of sunscreens: Introducing Sunny Side Up Cookie and Cream for unrivalled sun protection

Skinvest, a leading innovator in skincare solutions, is proud to announce the launch of its new sun protection products. Designed with advanced formulations researched and developed in collaboration with Stanford’s dermatologists, the Sunny Side Up Cookie and Cream is here to set a new standard for sun protection, empowering the Indian skin.


With the increasing awareness of the harmful effects of sun exposure, Skinvest has dedicated its efforts to develop a sunscreen that not only offers superior protection but also enhances the overall skin care experience and solves problems customized to the variety of different skin tones and skin concerns.


Most “Indian Sunscreens” aren’t truly made for us Indians. The Indian Skin tone is a broad spectrum, and the “One Size Fits All” approach is not for us!

If your skin tone is between 1-4 on the Fitzpatrick scale, you need a Sunscreen that protects you from burning, whereas if you’re on 4 & above, you need to think more about tan!


The brand has made sure that customer awareness is kept in mind and with these new products they aim to educate people. Using cheaper sunscreens does not always mean they are right for the skin and avoiding the usage of sunscreens with harmful ingredients is necessary.

Both the sunscreens are:

             Oxybenzone aka Benzophenone free

             Avobenzone, Octocrylene and Octinoxate free

             Alcohol and artificial color free

             Vegan and Cruelty free

             Paraben and silicone free

             Reef safe and Hypoallergenic

Dr Vijaytha Murali a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow currently working in Stanford Dermatology, says


Indian skin is heterogeneous. It’s important to appreciate the diversity of skin tones Indian subcontinent encompasses ranging from fair skin that has the propensity to burn to dark skin that tans and darkens quickly upon sun exposure. Because of the diversity of Indian skin, skincare advice must be tailored to these differences in skin tones and types to address differing needs, as opposed to adopting a one-size fits all approach. On a cultural level, it is important that we are able to move away from the concept of lighter skin being viewed more favorably, and to truly appreciate the diversity of Indian skin tones, ranges, and tailor care to their specific needs. The accurate description of skin tone remains an area of Dermatology that is evolving. Typically, per current Fitzpatrick classifications, Indian tones tend to range anywhere from types II-VI, where lighter types tend to burn more easily, and the darker skin tones tend to tan.”
