What is Fernblock?

Fernblock® is the base active ingredient of HELIOCARE®

The importance of sun protection: 

As the days get lighter we are more inclined to spend time outdoors socialising, walking, and doing other activities, which can have many benefits for our mental and physical health.  However, It is reported around 3.7 million adults said that they don’t do anything to protect their skin when the sun is strong in the UK but would protect themselves more when abroad.  It’s important to not underestimate the risk the sun poses in the UK, even if it doesn’t feel as strong. 

Patented Technology:

Fernblock® has been shown to multiply the skin’s resistance to sunburn. Its protective activity extends to the entire radiation spectrum protecting our skin from the specific damage caused by the 4 types of radiation (UVB, UVA, Blue Light and IR-A).  It is an exclusive standardised extract of Polypodium Leucotomos with powerful protective, antioxidant and restorative action that works both topically and orally. It is a tropical fern native to Central America that in its transition from aquatic to terrestrial life developed mechanisms of self-defence and repair against the sun. The Chorotegas tribe of Honduras was the first to discover its excellent skincare properties.

Complying with the highest standards of photoprotection, designed for even the most sensitive and problematic skins requiring maximum protection against sun damage. With innovative textures that make it easier to apply throughout the year.
