Heliocare – Dermatological Sun and Photoprotection for Skin


*Sponsored Post*

Heliocare® is a sun protection range that South Africans have come to love. The range boasts one very unique ingredient that has become it’s shining star in sun protection – the fern plant.

The range protects against UVA and UVB rays, it has powerful anti-aging properties and is non-greasy.

The Heliocare® product line is created with the development of the Fernblock® technology, where standardized Polypodiym leucotomos extract, a tropical Central American fern which evolved from an aquatic to land plant, developing strong protective and repair mechanisms against UV radiation, forms the basis of all its products.

Fernblock technology was developed by the IFC Group, based in Spain, in collaboration with a group of leading experts in dermatology and photobiology at Harvard Medical School with the common purpose of developing a mechanism for sun protection.

Fernblock, an ingredient in all Heliocare products, will save your skin by:

  1. Acting as an antioxidant to prevent UV radiation.
  2. Protecting immune cells and preserving skin functionality.
  3. Preventing the formation of mutated cells to prevent skin cancer.
  4. Protecting elastic fibres to prevent photoageing.

The successive product development has been made possible due to the collaboration of great international experts in photoprotection and photobiology areas.

The product line was initially launched in the Spanish market and today it is present in more than 80 countries.


Heliocare® is the photoprotection line from pharmaceutical laboratory Cantabria Labs, leader in dermatological prescription.
