Our mission behind Plumscreen™ was to create a highly-effective yet aesthetically pleasing sunscreen without relying on the large amounts of mineral or chemical ingredients typical of most sunscreens. After 5 years of development, we’ve harnessed the inherent benefits of up-cycled, antioxidant-rich plums found on our farm.
Plumscreen™ is the first and only SPF 30+ to utilize the all-natural Power Of Plum® by way of our patent-pending Plum Superfruit Complex™ to provide clinically demonstrated skin benefits along with broad-spectrum sunscreen and blue light protection.
Most sunscreens have an upwards amount of 10%-25% or more of an FDA-listed chemical or mineral sunscreen active ingredient. Plumscreen™ uniquely uses the all-natural Power Of Plum®. The only sunscreen active ingredient is Zinc Oxide at 4.7% - we use Non-Nano Zinc Oxide so it stays on the skin’s surface. Crafted with conscience, Plumscreen is not only safe for your health but the preservation and protection of our environment.
Ideal For All Skin Types
Especially acne prone & extremely sensitive or allergy prone skin. Transparent application and no tint.
Plum Superfruit Complex™
Our patent-pending leading active ingredient, Plum Superfruit Complex®, sinks into the skin and defends against free radicals that can damage DNA. Derived from up-cycled plum ingredients found on our 100-year-old family farm, it delivers UVA/UVB/HEV protection and is exclusive to Le Prunier.
Plum Beauty Oil
Our proprietary blend of antioxidant-rich Plum Beauty Oil sinks into skin, enveloping the face and décolleté in a veil of comfort and hydration. Plum Beauty Oil helps calm irritation and seal in moisture without clogging pores.
Zonaria Tournefortii Extract
A hand-harvested seaweed from the pristine clear waters of the Azorean sea. This reef-safe ingredient hydrates skin while helping defend against environmental pollutants that can cause wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
Skincare and Sun Protection
Plumscreen™ combines our cult-favorite Plum Beauty Oil and Plum Superfruit Complex™ that sinks into skin protecting collagen and elastin from UV damage and reduces free radicals that can damage DNA. By using the all-natural Power Of Plum®, the only sunscreen active is Non-Nano Zinc Oxide at 4.7%.
Mineral sunscreens remain on the surface of the skin, but they are not without their limitations as they often leave a heavy residue. Plumscreen™ provides invisible SPF 31 protection and skin benefits with Plum Beauty Oil, Plum Superfruit Complex™, and Zonaria Tournefortii Extract that absorb into the skin. Suitable for all skin types.
Makeup Primer Base
Plumscreen™ protects, hydrates and primes the skin for makeup application. Unlike most sunscreens, our formula stays in place and does not shift under makeup. Use Plumscreen™ in the mornings after your skincare routine and reapply every two hours. We also recommend applying a few drops of Plum Beauty Oil underneath Plumscreen™ for added benefits.

- SSunI recommend this productRated 5 stars3 months agoThe Best!
I’m glad I made the right decision to finally bite the bullet and try Plumscreen. I have no hestitation to pay US$78 for a very clean and great sunscreen but the price in Canadian dollar of C$144 plus shipping is very high. Notwithstanding the price, OMG! Plumscreen is the best clean sunscreen I ever use (and I have tried a lot) - the right weight, slippage, consistency, not too dry and not too oily…just right! I am on my first tube but can see myself repurchasing Plumscreen again and again. Just hope that LePrunier will make the price more affordable for Canadian customer.Was this helpful?
- MMandyVerified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 stars4 months agoGame Changer!
I am 100% obsessed with this sunscreen!!It feels so silky and literally melts into my skin. I'm olive toned and have suffered from hyperpigmentation, so I know SPF is a necessary evil. But to date I hadn't found one that doesn't feel like I'm makign some kind of sacrifice to wear it - makes my face a weird color, feels thick and cakey...this is a dream come true. And I love that it has skincare benefits and is over 30 in protection! THANK YOU LE PRUNIER!Was this helpful?
- SSamaI recommend this productRated 5 stars4 months agoLOVE!!! It's perfect.
I absolutely love this sunscreen/skincare! I am not a fan of most face sunscreens high end or not I usually go without because I can't stand the texture, smell, feel and how it wears. Plumscreen is totally different and much to my surprise won me over right away. The feel is amazing and rich like a high end moisturizer and even though it has a rich feel to it, it sinks right into my combo skin. No left over shine and zero breakouts. My skin feels so nice after I put this on over my TNS growth factor and Osmosis rescue serum. You cannot tell you have a sunscreen on at all -zero color. My makeup (if I am wearing any) glides on perfectly over it as well which I love. I actually am perfecting this to the plum oil (which I really like) this just sinks in and hydrates my combo skin so well. I will definitely purchase again!Was this helpful?
- KKristenVerified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 stars4 months agoGreat daily/low-key sunscreen!!
So, my title is a little specific, major emphasis on *daily/low-key*. For that, it's fantastic!! But it's not good for long periods in the sun - more on that below if you want to read, but that's my high level opinion. (Heads up, there will be a lot of parenthetical comments.)
Formula: Superb! Lotiony, not sticky, light, silky. It's really great. I wasn't someone to wear a sunscreen before this, because I haven't liked the feeling or look of them, so I'm glad to have this on hand! No issues interacting with other products at all (though I mostly use mists+oils+balms, and then mineral makeup - I'm experimenting with sprinkling it in this plumscreen and applying as a second layer!). But if you're having pilling, I've heard people have success by letting products dry between steps? That could help? One thing I'd like to call out is that I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin (acne, rosacea, eczema... pretty much prone to everything, even if it isn't currently active), as in I literally haven't been able to use lotions because I'll break out into a rash with bumps. I'm not sure what it is. I know harsh plant ingredients can cause my skin to react, like some plant extracts and essential oils, and I definitely know some traditional additives and ingredients cause my skin to flare. But I've tried that lotion with only three ingredients, I've tried hypoallergenic products developed by dermatologists for sensitive skin, all of it. Rashes galore. So I was a little scared to try this, but I'm beyond glad I did! I think I'm seeing improvements in my skin also (been using it about a month now). As far as the smell, I guess there's one? It's incredibly faint and goes away. The plum oil smells beautiful (and is itself just so beautiful, too - LOVE the oil) - this does not smell like that. But I really don't have an issue with it. I didn't even notice until I saw a review mention it, so I went and spread it on my hands and then smelled it. And I'm decently sensitive to smells.
SPF: Not so sure... I went to the beach recently, and I went on a boat ride. No water, no sweat, just some light but extended sun exposure (4 hours midday, FL in the winter). I used much more of this than I would use of my old face sunscreen (which I do still like, it was just a lot for daily wear), and I even reapplied the plumscreen. I got pretty burned. For reference, my other sunscreen (a handmade Ayurvedic formula) is like 20% zinc, and it also says it's SPF 30. I could whisper that one on, just applying one pump to my whole face, and the skin touched by it would stay pale, even when swimming and sweating. I'm not sure if the other sunscreen (and likely others) are just way better at staying put, or maybe higher than they're rated, or if maybe plumscreen isn't actually SPF 31? I would say just treat this as like an SPF 15 or 20.
Packaging: I think others have said it - it can be a little hard to use, especially as you get towards the end. It gushes out when you open it initially, but I didn't have a problem taking it on the plane (pressure). I plan on getting one of those key things you roll the end of the tube with (just looked it up, "Metal Tube Squeezer Roller Key"). I think the point of accessibility made by another reviewer is valid, and I have to say that I also generally dislike the dropper systems for oils. It lets so much air touch the product, and I knock the bottles over so often it's a little embarrassing (because also I'll forget to close them, *facepalm*).
So, all that said, I do still love this product and the formula! I'll continue to use it daily, because it's such a pleasure to apply and wear, and there are some other benefits to the product, too! I asked the company about the "complex" - I got a pretty cookie cutter statement that I'd previously seen on the website. I was hoping for more info. Fingers crossed there's something actually to it!! And, like I've said, I have sensitive skin, so finding a sunscreen/lotion that works on a regular/daily basis is challenging for me. I'll keep my old sunscreen around for actual outdoor activities. It just doesn't look or feel as nice as this one.
Final, final thought: I'd say this product has a specific purpose as an indoor/daily sunscreen/lotion, but, in that capacity, it excels.Was this helpful?
- RRobbVerified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 stars4 months agoPlumscreen Supreme!
Like many people, I don't particularly appreciate wearing sunscreen because of how it feels on my skin, its thickness, and the off-white shadow sometimes left behind by mineral-based products. Worse, most sunscreens make my face feel oily by the end of the day. To overshare, I have combination skin with an oily T-zone, and Im between a 3 and 4 according to the Fitzpatrick Scale. So while I wasn't expecting much, Plumscreen has completely surprised me. The product's texture is whipped light, the feeling after application is almost nonexistent, and my face doesn't look like an oil slick at the end of the day! I'm also applying more sunscreen than ever before, which I think is a good thing for my skin!
On the other hand, the physical packaging still requires attention, in my opinion. Consider "universal design and inclusivity" The relatively small screw-on cap begs to be accidentally dropped down a sink or have it roll underneath a cabinet. And, rather than feeling like one is reaching for an old tube of toothpaste with continued use, the product tackle experience should feel and look new to the very last use. Ditto for the oil bottle....why not have a pump that keeps air out of the bottle and would be easier for everyone to use, rather than a dropper that requires two hands?
I still want to congratulate you on excellent products and will continue to reorder, but I thought I'd throw in my unsolicited two cents.Was this helpful?
