Our most popular sun protection brand, Heliocare makes its way into more shopping carts than any other SPF (closely followed by Anthony Day Cream SPF 30 and Jack Black Sun Guard SPF 45), but what makes it so special?
Developed in Spain by Cantabria Labs group, Heliocare's protection is based on research carried out jointly with the laboratory and Harvard University Medical School. The duo developed Fernblock Technology using extracts from Central American Ferns, and made this the base for all of their products. The collection defends the skin against damage from UVA, UVB, visible and infrared light, while also preventing solar damage to the skin using a powerful anti-oxidant shield.
The Heliocare 360 collection is by far the most popular range within the Heliocare portfolio. 360 is a complete photo-protection treatment offering SPF50 and SPF50+ defence and a shot of nourishment from vitamins C and E, and green tea and roxisomes, which help to slow down the ageing process by protecting the cell DNA and preventing oxidative damage.
Heliocare 360 Oil-Free Dry Touch Gel SPF 50 is Heliocare's most popular product. Unlike other SPF's, 360 Oil-Free Dry Touch Gel doesn't leave a white sheen on the skin and also, as it's oil-free, it doesn't make the skin shiny or greasy.
