Our SOL-IR™ Advanced Antioxidant Complex
Total Defense + Repair is more than a sunscreen; it’s a rejuvenating superscreen, powered by SOL-IR™ Advanced Antioxidant Complex. Traditional broad-spectrum sunscreens only protect against UVA and UVB. Our trio of potent antioxidants is what enables Total Defense + Repair to protect against IR-A and help rejuvenate skin.

Warning for Sunscreens
Does TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR work well with TNS Essential Serum®?
Yes. TNS Essential Serum® includes our proprietary growth factor blend, TNS®, which is not part of Total Defense + Repair. Those growth factors are very important for rejuvenation.
Both products include powerful antioxidants, but the blends are very different and are designed to work in different ways to support the skin. The two products complement each other.
Additionally, Total Defense + Repair can be used with any SkinMedica® product or regimen to add a layer of protection.
Does TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR work well with Vitamin C + E Complex?
Yes. Both products include powerful antioxidants, but the blends are very different and are designed to work in different ways to support the skin. TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR can be used during the day for solar protection with antioxidant benefits, and Vitamin C + E Complex could be used at night to assist in rejuvenation processes.
Does Total Defense + Repair offer better protection than a traditional sunscreen with a really high SPF?
Yes. Just because a product has a high SPF (ie, ≥ 50) does not mean it offers complete coverage against the sun’s rays.
Total Defense + Repair offers broad-spectrum protection and highly effective antioxidant protection from infrared radiation and free radical damage.
