“What’s Fernblock?” you ask. Firstly, good question. Secondly, it’s an excellent reason to consider giving the Heliocare range a try if you haven’t already…
You see, not all sunscreens are created equal. As we start mentally packing for our much-anticipated beach vacay or getting the pool prepped for an Instagram-worthy staycation, just ticking the ‘wear sunscreen’ box isn’t enough; you want a sunscreen that ticks all the boxes.
It’s more than an ingredient; it’s technology
The development of Fernblock® technology to develop a complete sun protection mechanism – was a joint effort made possible by the collaboration between the Cantabria Labs Group research team and the research team of Dr Thomas Fitzpatrick (The Father of Modern Dermatology) of Harvard University (Harvard Medical School). Together, these two teams of researchers demonstrated that Fernblock prevented immediate damage such as sunburn and proved that this extract protects against accumulated adverse effects, including DNA damage, skin ageing, and loss of defences or sun allergies.
Believe the hype; Fernblock is the real deal
Fernblock® is shown to multiply the skin’s resistance to sunburn courtesy of its protective activity, which extends to the entire radiation spectrum. Simply put, a sunscreen product that contains Fernblock®, protects your skin from 4 types of radiation (UVB, UVA, Blue Light and IR-A). And, as these types of radiation cause damage to our cell DNA, which can build up and lead to health problems, you really want to protect against it. Fernblock® technology has been shown to prevent the formation of this damage and accelerate its repair – preventing sun damage from accumulating and giving your skin its PhD in photoprotection.
