A NEW ERA IN DERMATOLOGICAL PHOTOPROTECTION
Even though sun is beneficial to both physical and mental health, excessive exposure without adequate protection can cause alterations such as:
- Sun Spots
- Skin Cancer
New studies have demonstrated that in addition to UVB and UVA, Infrared Radiation (IR-A), High Energy (HEV) part of visible light can also cause skin damage.1,2 Hence complete photoprotection is required in order to provide protection against all these radiations.
This opens the door to a new era in photoprotection with a 360° effect – Heliocare 360°.
Heliocare 360° offers the most complete coverage spectrum due to an exclusive combination of physical, chemical and biological filters that protect against UVB, UVA, IR-A and visible light.3
Heliocare 360° offers intense antioxidant protection with Fernblock FC, a natural patented active ingredient enriched with ferulic and caffeic acid, which neutralises free radical activity.3
Heliocare 360° helps repair damage to cellular and mitochondrial DNA due to the presence of roxisomes.3
Heliocare 360°’s innovative Smart Galenic photoimmunoprotective action offers full coverage with an ultralight texture.3
When used with Heliocare Ultra Oral Capsules the Heliocare 360° range truly provides optimised protection inside and out.
Heliocare – sun protection, inside and out.3
The Heliocare 360° range is available from Aesthetic Clinics, Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons.
