To Use

Shake well before use. Apply liberally on face and body skin, carefully avoiding membranous areas of eyes and nostrils. For best results, apply 30 to 60 minutes prior to sun exposure.

When outdoors, reapply at least every 1 to 2 hours, after swimming or sweating and after towel drying.


UV exposure from the sun increases the risk of skin cancer, premature skin aging and other skin damage. It is important to decrease UV exposure by limiting time in the sun, wearing protective clothing, and using a sunscreen.

UV rays from the sun are made of UVB + UVA. It is important to protect against both UVB + UVA rays to prevent sunburn and other skin damage.

Practice sun avoidance - particularly for children and the photosensitive, and especially between 10 A.M. and 2 P.M. (10:00-14:00) - as much as possible.

Before using any product, test a tiny amount of it on skin (we omit allergens, but you may be sensitive to an ingredient that isn't an allergen).

Introduce new products one at a time, with at least 3 days in between to make sure you are not allergic.

Do not store in extreme temperatures or in direct sunlight.

Do not (re)introduce removed portions of product, water or other substances into product.

As with all things skin, consult your dermatologist.


For external use only on specified areas as directed.

Stop use + consult your doctor in the unlikely event of discomfort or sensitivity.

If contact with eyes occurs, flush out with plenty of water.

Keep out of reach of children. While safe for its intended use, ingesting large amounts of this product - as unattended children may do - is potentially harmful. If large quantities of this product have been ingested, get medical help right away.

More Information

1) Summer Skintelligence: Power Up to Cover Up -If I'm darker-skinned, I don't need to worry about skin cancer.

This is a misconception that is both very common and extremely dangerous. Caucasians are still at the top of the list for melanoma (20.8% per 100,000 people) versus 4.3% of reported cases for Hispanics. Overall, of reported melanoma cases, 70% occur in Caucasian patients, compared with 29% in Hispanic patients of any race, and 2% in non-Hispanic patients of African ethnicity. But late-stage disease is far more common among Hispanics (26%) and non-Hispanic blacks (52%) than among non-Hispanic whites (16%).

2) Sun and Light Protection: Indoor Lights, Year-Round Protection - The increasing number of skin problems attributed to sun and light exposure is why we measure Armada's protection factors not just for UVB light, but also for UVA light as well as indoor and outdoor Infrared and Visible Light.We're proud to say that VMV's Armada features the most comprehensive protection: no other sun and light screen has measured protection factors against both outdoor and indoor UVA, UVB, Visible, and Infrared Light.

3) Summer Skintelligence: Learn, Don't Burn - I heard that SPFs over 15 are pointless, and anything above SPF 30 is no better than 30 ... why use sunscreens with higher values? "SPF", or Sunburn (previously "Sun") Protection Factor, refers to a product's ability to protect against UVB light, still the main cause of sunburn. SPF 15 already provides 96.7% protection; SPF 30 yields just 1% more. At SPF 50+, it is presumed that 100% protection from sunburn due to UVB is given.

4) Armada Sun & Light Screens: Engarde! We've Got You Armed - With skin cancer at epidemic proportions, it's time to break out the big guns. Of course, and we're proud as punch of this, we've been locked and loaded for decades. We began making and testing sunscreens with the then shockingly high SPF 30 in the late 1980s when SPF 15 was considered over the top (they've since come to include SPFs as high as 90). In 2002, Armada was one of the first sunblocks to prioritize high PFAs (protection against UVA) as well as SPF, the first to include protection factors for Visible and Infrared Light rays, and the first with measured protection against indoor light and heat sources (we're still the only ones to do this!)

My Perfect Partner

Been using this product since my university days up to now as a career woman especially im very exposed in outdoor activities being an engineer. I never go out without putting ARMADA Face Cover on my face. Im confident that my face will not get harmed with this. I hope VMV will always have stocks on this same with other products concerning for face. No other products can substitute the efficacy ai experienced with VMV.

Been using since 2014

I have used this sunscreen since 2014 because it's the only one that has never broken me out, unlike others. I'm not too fond of the texture though it's so sticky and tacky, that it's very difficult to apply to a dry face.


VMV Hypoallergenics Philippines

Hi Denise! Thanks for writing in! We are happy that Armada Face Cover 45 is generally working well for you but apologize that you find the texture sticky and tacky. We are always striving to look for ways on how we can improve: we find your comment helpful and are thankful for it! Sometimes, the tactile properties of a product can be limited by our requirements, including non- or less allergenicity, clinically-proven efficacy, and other safety concerns. For example, many sunscreens that might feel lighter or less tacky use nanoparticles. Nanoparticles are popular because they do tend to spread more easily but there are some health and environmental concerns (still very much debated) and allergenicity risks (well established — a smaller molecular size often increases the risk of an allergic response). Still, we respect that different people have different preferences. Thank you very much for letting us know — we'll be forwarding your comments to our team — as this feedback helps us improve. Thank you again very much for taking the time to inform us of this and hope this has been helpful. Skincerely, VMV HYPOALLERGENICS®

Great sunscreen

Pros: Very effective coverage with mattifying and hydrating effects. I’ve never had breakouts or any skin irritation with this and I’ve also noticed my skin has turned brighter over the years Cons: Im a bit on the darker side so the white cast is more evident at first. There’s also a bit of pilling when used with other products (tint or foundation) or profuse sweat
