How Heliocare work?

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!


Fernblock® is the base active ingredient of HELIOCARE®. 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.

Fernblock®+ acts on all four types of radiation (UVB, UVA, Blue Light and IR-A)
and prevent both their immediate damage (burns) and those that arise over time: skin aging, dark spots, loss of defences, allergies and even skin cancer. Its photoprotection activity is 2 times higher than Fernblock and DNA protection and repair abilities is 2.4 times greater.

Fernblock® technology arose from research by the Cantabria Labs Group together with the research team of Dr.Thomas Fitzpatrick (The Father of Modern Dermatology) of Harvard University (Harvard Medical School) with the aim of developing a complete sun protection mechanism.

They demonstrated that this extract not only prevents immediate damage such as sunburn, but also provides protection against delayed accumulated negative effects. These includes DNA damage, skin aging, loss of defences or sun allergies.
