Frequently Asked Questions

What do the different Starter Kit color options mean? 
Our color choices only reflect a change in engine cap color.

Is lumasol an aerosol product?
No, lumasol is a fine mist that is produced by pump actuation. 

Is lumasol a physical or chemical sunscreen? What’s the difference? 
lumasol is a chemical sunscreen. Chemical sunscreens work like a sponge, absorbing the sun’s harmful rays, then converting the rays into heat and releasing them from the body. These formulations tend to be easier to apply, without leaving a white residue.  

Physical sunscreens work like a shield, sitting on the surface of your skin and deflecting the sun’s rays. It might not be the best choice for oily or acne-prone skins. Physical sunscreen tends to be more heavy and thick on the skin and difficult to fully blend in.
