FAQ

Should I apply an additional SPF since this is only SPF 30?
SPF 50 is only about 1.3% more protective than SPF 30—but if you want extra protection, go ahead. The Multimodal Defender also offers Broad Spectrum coverage, which means it protects against UVA, UVB, infrared, and blue light rays.
Can this be used at night as well?
Yes! This is a true treatment product designed for both day and night use. Apply it in the evening to treat spots and wake up to brightened skin.
How long will the product last me?
It should last six weeks, if used as directed.
What if I see a white cast when applying the MMD?
Not to worry. That just means you need to blend it in fully. Within a few seconds of application, it warms and absorbs to your skin, leaving a soft, illuminated radiance.
Can you tell me about the texture of the Multimodal Defender?
The consistency of the Multimodal Defender is naturally rich and buttery—so buttery, in fact, that it comes with a spoon for optimal application. Thanks to its targeted blend of ingredients, it’s designed to have a thick, almost solid texture as it comes out of the jar. Once massaged, it transforms, heating to your body temperature and melting into a creamy, non-migrating balm. It then releases a potentially cooling effect, as it's fully absorbed into the skin and blended into your complexion. This unique texture accounts for how it appears in the jar, which is completely normal. It also makes it ideal for both allover and spot treatment (be more generous for day and opt for a thinner coat to treat dark spots), so you can easily measure exactly how much you’re applying.
