A life saver for my skin
Rebecca, 22, Sydney
I have been on the hunt for a daily sunscreen and this has ticked all my boxes. Its lightweight texture glides on easily and the matte finish sits perfectly under makeup! I have combination skin so I appreciate the fragrance free and non greasy aspects while also protecting my skin.
Feeling confident in my skin
Jessica, 20, Sydney
So many of the sunscreens I've tried in the past either reveal my dry patches or leave me looking oily and sweaty, so I'd sacrifice wearing sunscreen so that I'd be less self-conscious. Software's new sunscreen, however, provides the thin, lightweight texture needed to leave an invisible finish that suits my sensitive skin. Its non-sticky, non-greasy texture makes me feel more comfortable and confident in my skin and encourages me to apply sunscreen daily.
The serum sunscreen of my dreams omg
Bec, 23, Sydney
I used to use La Roche Posay invisible fluid….but this is even better!! The consistency is super lightweight like a serum, so it dries really quickly between finishing my skincare and applying foundation. It's the perfect underlayer because it never pills.
The MVP of my skincare routine
Alex, 30, Sydney
I’m super picky when it comes to sunscreen and Software’s SPF is my new favourite skincare product. It’s non-greasy (no oily shine here!), doesn’t leave a white cast and layers under makeup perfectly. And, the gentle and lightweight formula is great for my sensitive skin.

How often should I reapply the Daily Sun Defence?

Reapply the sunscreen every 2 hours and after swimming, drying off with a towel, and sweating. Remember that sunscreen is only one part of sun protection, so make sure to wear protective clothing, seek shade, and avoid prolonged sun exposure.

Is the Daily Sun Defence a chemical or physical sunscreen?

If you’ve heard the terms chemical, physical, mineral and organic in relation to sunscreen, here are the key differences:

Organic (“chemical”) sunscreens are based on a carbon chain structure with higher absorption and UVA protection levels. This is ideal for people who use sunscreen to prevent pigmentation and signs of ageing.

Inorganic (“physical”) sunscreens are based on minerals or ionic compounds (hence why they’re often called mineral sunscreens), and feature zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These can often give off a white cast because they’re made up of larger molecules. Physical sunscreens are often thicker, looking and feeling like a zinc blocker.
Software’s Daily Sun Defence is a chemical sunscreen.

What skin type is best suited for The Daily Sun Defence?

There’s a common misconception that people with darker skin tones don’t need to wear sunscreen. However, harmful exposure to UV rays can affect everyone beyond just burning, including people of colour, with conditions like hyperpigmentation, photoaging, and melanoma (a type of skin cancer). Software’s Daily Sun Defence is non-tacky with an invisible finish so it won’t leave a white cast on the skin, which is a great option for darker skin tones.

Can The Daily Sun Defence be worn under makeup?

The sunscreen sits well under makeup since it doesn’t leave a white cast and won’t pill.

Can I use this sunscreen on the rest of my body?

Yes, it can be used on the face and body. We've intentionally made it pint sized (75mL) to make it portable and convenient to carry around with you.

Is The Daily Sun Defence reef safe?

There are studies that have found that oxybenzone and oxycrylene are both contributors to coral bleaching, leading to certain countries such as Hawaii banning these ingredients. However, the dosage of oxybenzone and oxycrylene needs to be much higher than the dosage in sunscreen to cause reef damage, but if you are swimming near a coral reef, exercise caution.

Is The Daily Sun Defence vegan?

Yes, the sunscreen is vegan and cruelty-free as we do not test our formulas on animals.

How does SPF50 work?

SPF stands for sun protection factor. It’s the measure of how much UV gets through. The higher the number, the less UV passes through.

An SPF of 30 allows one-thirtieth or 3.3% of UV to reach your skin. This means it filters 96.7% of UV. With an SPF of 50, 98% is filtered and one-fiftieth or 2% gets through.

So while the difference between SPF 30 and SPF 50 sounds like a lot – it is a pretty modest (1.3%) – difference in protection [REF2].

What’s happened to The Solar Fluid?

We received lots of enquiries about updating our Solar Fluid formula to be fragrance free and without a tint, hence the new Daily Sun Defence SPF50+. But if you are still interested in purchasing The Solar Fluid it is available through your Software profile.
