1989: Founding of Fallene Ltd. Dr. Fallick, a Plastic Surgeon, joined forces with a pharmaceutical chemist to develop a variety of products for sale through skin care professionals. Chief among their goals was to create the most complete, full-spectrum sunscreen available; something that would work for light-sensitive individuals, particularly those with photosensitivity and skin cancer.
1994: Total Block® Introduction. Total Block® was introduced to the dermatologic community in 1994, designed to meet the needs of highly photosensitive patients. The initial line consisted of a non-comedogenic SPF 65 sunscreen and SPF 60 tinted foundation.
2003: Our first all-mineral sunscreen. Solar Protection Formula® SPF 58 grew out of our mission to create healthier sunscreens, avoiding chemical sunscreen filters that can themselves be sensitizing and can absorb into the skin. The challenge was to make mineral sunscreen that was aesthetically elegant, to maximize patient compliance.
2005: Esthetician sales. The combination of high efficacy, gentleness, and extraordinary elegance made TIZO a favorite of estheticians. Direct outreach to these skincare professionals, in addition to the physicians that offer TIZO, expanded the brand’s reach among consumers dedicated to their skin health.
2006: International expansion. Branching out from the U.S., our first international market was Mexico. Today TIZO® is distributed in 29 countries from South America to Asia.
2007: TIZO3 launches. TIZO3 set a new standard for aesthetic elegance in a highly efficacious mineral sunscreen, and quickly became a hero product. Elegant enough to double as a makeup primer, TIZO3 is the ‘go to’ for daily facial sun protection. The ‘3’ indicates the three minerals: Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, both sunscreens, and Iron Oxide, which provides the product’s translucent tint.
2009: TIZO® Ultra Zinc SPF 40 (originally TIZO® Body). Zinc oxide provides the broadest spectrum UV coverage available, in addition to being considered the gentlest and least irritating sunscreen ingredient. The trick was to create a formula that doesn’t leave a white cast on skin. TIZO broke the code with Ultra Zinc SPF 40; tinted and non-tinted formulas that are virtually invisible on most skin tones.
2012: SheerFoam™ Innovation. Our patented mineral sunscreen foam delivers the spreadability and lightness of sunscreen sprays without the use of chemical sunscreens or the risk of inhaling particles sprayed into the air.
2013: Skin Firm Technology®. Looking beyond sun protection, TIZO® Photoceutical® Skin Care was created to help repair and revitalize photodamaged skin, in addition to helping prevent future damage. Created with an innovative Skin Firm Technology™ vehicle that gradually and continuously releases performance ingredients to the skin.
2018: For Professional Use – AHA/Retinol Peel System. Our first treatment for use only by skin care professionals, The TIZO® Photoceutical® Peel System is a unique dual peel that starts with an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) blend followed by an application of Retinol Reversal, a proprietary blend of 10% Retinol delivered through the time-release TIZO Skin Firm Technology®.
2019: Sheer Botanicals SPF 45. TIZO® Sheer Botanicals, a silky, plant-based mineral sunscreen, is the brand’s first USDA Certified Biobased Product, with 93% biobased content. It is silicone-free, non-tinted, and free of chemical sunscreen filters, dyes, fragrances, gluten and preservatives.
