Heliocare 360º is a fully innovative product in photoprotection, with dermatological recommendation. Its exclusive formula provides the widest coverage protecting from all solar radiations: UVA, UVB, visible and infrared. It helps neutralise and repair damage produced by solar radiation thanks to Fernblock® FC (enriched with ferulic and caffeic acids) and other active Fernblock® properties.
Fernblock® Technology, is the basis of all HELIOCARE products, stemming from Polypodium leucotomos extract, a fern grown in Central America, which develops defence and repairing mechanisms from the sun when evolving from aquatic to terrestrial life. Fernblock® has a strong antioxidant action over free radicals, especially over those generated by solar radiation. These free radicals produced by the sun are responsible for cell damage, blemishes and photoaging.
DNA Protection – Sun affects the genetic components in our cells, its DNA. Little by little, mutations in a lifetime can turn into serious diseases such as skin cancer. Several studies report Fernblock® prevents and repairs DNA damage caused by solar radiation. Outdoor activities play a part of a healthy lifestyle. The sun is a source of health and well-being but can also have negative consequences on the skin. Enjoy and protect yourself from the sun with HELIOCARE!
Solar Radiation – is a wide spectrum of electromagnetic radiations issued by the sun. Within this spectrum, and depending on its wavelength, we find different radiations. Ultraviolet radiation (UV) is the best known and studied, nevertheless, Infrared (IR) and visible (VIS) radiation make the largest percentage in solar radiation and have been under study for the last years. Skin has different self defence mechanisms for solar protection. These mechanisms are mainly two: melanin synthesis and the keratinisation or thickening of the most superficial skin layer. These mechanisms, although effective, are not enough to protect us appropriately from solar radiation. This is the reason why topical photoprotection plays an important role.
Immune System Protection – The sun affects our skin defence mechanisms. Langerhans cells act as a radar, detecting aggressions and activating our defences. Solar radiation damages those cells, reducing immune function. Fernblock® protects and regulates our immune system.
Photoaging Prevention – Fernblock® protects cutaneous structure components like fibroblasts, collagen and elastin. This way, skin structure is not altered and wrinkle appearance, loss of firmness, dryness, hyperpigmentation and visible signs of photoaging which arise from solar exposure are avoided.
