Screen saver: Af­ter years run­ning Mecca’s in-house brands, cre­at­ing and launch­ing many of their best­selling prod­ucts with a fo­cus on sun­care, Ultra Vi­o­lette co-founder Ava Matthews knew what was still miss­ing from the sun cat­e­gory. “Ev­ery dermatologist ad­vises wear­ing sun­screen ev­ery day, but there is noth­ing spe­cial about the way they look, feel or smell,” notes Matthews. “We wanted to cre­ate a range of fa­cial sun­screens that looked beau­ti­ful, were easy to un­der­stand, felt nice to wear, con­tained great in­gre­di­ents and played well with the rest of your skin­care and make-up.” The One: First up is the Aus­tralian-made Queen Screen Light­weight Skin­screen SPF50+, $47, ul­tra­vi­o­lette.com.au. “It’s the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of skin­care and sun­screen, and the light­weight for­mula is packed with an­tiox­i­dants, but still suit­able for sen­si­tive skin,” ex­plains Matthews. Wear it solo, or mixed with your daily mois­turiser or foun­da­tion. Up next: A min­eral sun­screen is slated for next month, with a hy­brid mois­turiser-primer sun­screen, SPF fin­ish­ing spray and tinted skin­screens also on the cards.
