After researching the Purito Centella Green Safe Sun recently in compiling my review, I couldn’t help but notice how similar it is to the Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence that I tested last year. So I delved a little further and what I discovered is very interesting.
klairs soft airy uv essence
The Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA++++ is a water based, lightweight, everyday sun protector for sensitive skin that leaves no greasiness or white cast. It offers a high SPF and PA level to guard skin against UVA and UVB radiation.
purito centella green level safe sun
The Purito Centella Green Level Safe Sun SPF 50+ PA++++ claims to be an all EWG Green Level (1-2) chemical sunscreen that leaves no white cast, does not irritate and is gentle around the eyes to deliver a refreshing and soft product without greasiness. Sun protection is enhanced with soothing centella extract and anti-aging tocopherol.
Both appear to have comparable objectives, to provide lightweight, safe, effective high sun protection with the assistance of a chemical filter. In considering their CosDNA and EWG ratings, both return green, low hazard reports as shown below. Furthermore, their compositions are alarmingly similar. Note, I have juggled the order of ingredients a little to permit an immediate comparison by eye, so it is safe to suggest that although their formulas are similar, the ratios of ingredients will be different. The red outline shows the ingredients that differ across the two products.
If you would like to investigate their formulas more closely, they can be found here:

The differences in essential oils probably contribute to them having a slightly different scent. The Klairs one is also a little lighter in texture, airy as the name suggests. However, they perform so similarly in terms of application, wear and protection factors. I love them both. I have detailed reviews of both at these links: Purito Centella Green Safe Sun and Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence if want to know more.
For me, it’s a satisfying tie!
