About Alpha H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 50+
This daily essential moisturiser from acclaimed Australian skincare experts Alpha H contains complex SPF protection, to guard skin against UVA and UVB damage and help prevent premature ageing.
This lightweight and hydrating moisturiser has a delicate non-greasy, non-comedogenic formula which dries with skin on contact, meaning it’s suitable for all skin types, even oily and combination skin. Soothing aloe vera is combined with natural honeycomb extract, helping to strengthen the skin’s lipid barrier and help seal moisture into the epidermis for longer lasting hydration throughout the day.
The high level of SPF protection combines five protective elements and is resistant to water and perspiration. This moisturiser glides effortlessly into skin with a non-whitening formula, setting it apart from other SPF protection on the market. With antioxidant vitamin E, it also helps protect against free radicals and environmental factors. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which is essential in preventing damage to skin’s cell structures from environmental stress, such as UV and heat exposure.
Powerful SPF protection
Why is protection against UVA and UVB so important? Ultraviolet A and B waves are radiation from the sun which are invisible to the naked eye. They play a large part in contributing to premature skin ageing, eye conditions and skin cancers, and can also suppress the immune system, making it harder to fight against these and other such conditions.
SPF, or sun protection factor, is a rating which gives an indication of the level of protection from UVB and UVA rays. The higher the number, the higher the level of protection. SPF 50+ is the highest level of protection, meaning the Alpha H Daily Essential Moisturiser offers the highest level of protection against harmful UV rays.
What Level of SPF Protection do I Need?
Whether you’re dark or fair skinned, all skin types need some level of SPF protection. But with such a broad spectrum to choose from, it can be confusing to choose the right level at times.
Lower to medium level SPF protection offered in most moisturisers (such as SPF 15) will protect your skin for short periods of time, for example popping outside to the shop or going to and from the car. However these types of SPF are not suited to longer sun exposure, which is when a higher SPF is more suitable.
A higher level of protection, such as SPF 50+, is essential for those with very fair skin, those who are prone to freckles, or if you are going to be spending a prolonged period of time outside in direct sunlight. The Alpha H Daily Essential Moisturiser offers a comprehensive level of protection, helping to safeguard skin against damage, as well as long term effects of sun exposure such as premature ageing, age spots and wrinkles.
The Alpha H Brand
Based in Australia, the clever people at Alpha H know a thing or two about sun protection, being somewhat of a necessity in their long hot summers. Brand Director Michelle Doherty grew the brand and developed products that truly deliver on their promises after suffering with her own skin throughout her teenage years and being disappointed by other products on the market which failed to perform.
The active ingredients in their products promise a higher level of potency, which ensures a fast and instantly noticeable change in skin quality. Michelle and the team are dedicated to exhaustively researching what the skin needs for optimal health, in order to see a real improvement.
This ethos now sits at the heart of the Alpha H brand - an honest and reliable cosmeceutical brand with a dedication to effectively rejuvenate and replenish skin, no matter the type or what your lifestyle involves.
How to use Alpha H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 50+
After thoroughly cleansing and towel drying your face, apply a generous amount of Daily Essential Moisturiser to the skin, massaging in until fully absorbed. It leaves a matte finish and is an ideal makeup base. Reapply after swimming, towel drying, exercise and excessive perspiration.

I love this product. I am fair, and suffer from shiny and blemished skin. This is one of the only products I have found that gives long lasting effective shine control as well as sun protection, while being not being heavy. I use it every day. It is also great on holiday to use as facial sun protection as it doesn't have the thick greasy appearance of regular sun cream. Definitely worth the money!
