If you plan to spend time in the sun this summer or you are concerned about the everyday effects of solar radiation on your skin, including early signs of ageing, dark spots and sun allergies, HELIOCARE’s Fernblock® technology goes far beyond traditional photoprotection, providing new levels of skin defence.
What is Fernblock®?
Fernblock® is the base key ingredient used in the HELIOCARE range of sun protection products. It’s an exclusive standardised extract of the tropical fern, Polypodium leucotomos, with key ingredients that act on all four types of radiation (UVB, UVA, Visible and IR). This gives your skin a fighting chance against immediate damage (burns) and those that occur over time (skin ageing, dark spots, loss of skin defences, allergies and even skin cancer).
How do I know I can trust the technology?
Fernblock® technology is the result of research carried out by the Cantabria Labs Group together with the research team of Dr Fitzpatrick of Harvard University’s Medical School. The project, focused on developing a complete sun protection mechanism, discovered that the extract could prevent the immediate damage of sunburn while also helping to protect the skin from the effects of long-term sun exposure, including DNA damage, skin ageing, loss of defences and sun allergies. The result is the HELIOCARE range of sun protection products.
How does Fernblock® work?
While the sun’s negative effects on the skin are the most obvious in the form of sunburn, even with limited exposure, solar radiation over time can have a negative cumulative effect on the skin that manifests in signs of premature ageing such as wrinkles, dark spots and loss of elasticity, or even health problems like skin cancer.
This is because our skin has an important defence system against external aggressions that is negatively affected by the sun. Increased sun exposure increases our vulnerability, but new clinical data shows that HELIOCARE topical sunscreen, which includes sun filters and Fernblock®, gives your skin a significant advantage over sunscreens that contain sun filters only.
But is there more that we can do to protect and repair skin against the damaging effects of solar radiation? The answer is undoubtedly, yes.
Fernblock® technology in capsule form can be used to fortify the skin against sun damage from the inside.
When used along with topical sunscreens, a high content of Fernblock® with vitamins C, E, lutein and lycopene, can increase the skin’s resistance to the sun from the first capsule as well as neutralise and repair sun damage.
