Did you know that 90% of visible aging is caused by environmental damage, and the sun is the number-one offender? The main types of rays that damage our skin are UVA, UVB, and recent studies show now indicate Infrared A too, all of which can penetrate the skin and cause damage.
On the surface, this damage manifests as the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging and loss of density, and an un-even looking skin tone, however beneath the skin’s surface there is additional damage.
To adequately help to protect skin from the damaging effects of the sun, sun protection needs to be a part of an everyday skincare routine. Nothing shields the skin like Heliocare 360°. The multi-award-winning range provides daily protection against UVA and UVB, plus visible light and infrared-A.
Heliocare offers a wide range of oral and topical photoprotection products with scientifically proven efficacy. Its formulas combine state-of-the-art filters and active ingredients with the exclusive Fernblock® technology–the brand’s secret weapon against sun damage.

Do you know what Fernblock® is?
Fernblock® is a natural extract of Polypodium leucotomos, a species of fern native to Central America. As it evolved to colonize both aquatic and terrestrial habitats, this incredible plant developed a series of defense mechanisms against the sun.
It was through the study of these mechanisms that Heliocare created Fernblock®, an exclusive and highly concentrated fern extract that maximizes the properties of Polypodium leucotomos. Fernblock® is a natural source of antioxidant substances, such as polyphenols and monosaccharides.
How does Fernblock® help your skin?
Fernblock® helps protect the skin from the harmful effects of solar radiation in the following ways:
- DNA protection →Fernblock® helps prevent and repair DNA damage caused by solar radiation;
- Antioxidant protection →Fernblock® combats free radicals, which are responsible for cell damage, blemishes, and cutaneous photoaging;
- Immune system protection →Fernblock® helps protect and regulate the immune system;
- Photoaging prevention →Fernblock® preserves the integrity of structural components of the skin, such as fibroblasts, collagen and elastin. This way, it helps prevent wrinkles, loss of firmness, dryness, hyperpigmentation, and visible signs of photoaging.
