FIVE STAR UVA Protection + MMP Inhibitors
Shield your skin from UV-light, pollution and free radicals with 100% micronized, microdispersed mineral filters. Our powerful new peptide technology prevents the sun-induced breakdown of the collagen matrix - known as matrix metalloprotease (MMP) - one of the primary causes in the development of lines and wrinkles. This lightweight, transparent formula minimizes signs of premature aging and the formation of dark spots. Suitable for even the most delicate skin. So gentle it can be used to protect the delicate eye area and skin after aesthetic/clinical procedures.
100% MINERAL SUNSCREEN provides UVA/UVB protection with outstanding skin transparency: Zinc oxide is the most broad-spectrum UV filter available, protecting from the far end of the UVB spectrum to the far end of the UVA spectrum.
ZINC OXCIDE protects skin against damage caused by free radicals generated by blue-light. Blue-light from both natural light and man-made light emitted from computers, televisions, and smart phone screens, passes the skin membrane causing skin damage similar to that caused by UV rays, such as wrinkles and age spots.
VITAMIN C + VITAMIN E for antioxidant synergy: Vitamin C provides photoprotection, and works even better in conjunction with vitamin E, which potentiates the action of vitamin C four-fold. Vitamin C and vitamin E synergistically limit chronic UV damage by significantly reducing both cell apoptosis and thymine dimer formation.
BIO-SUISSE ORGANIC EDELWEISS, BUDDLEJA DAVIDII and THYMUS VULGARIS EXTRACTS reduce oxidative stress from pollution and ozone-generated free radicals that can damage and dull the skin.
HYALURONIC ACID and PANTHENOL (Vitamin B5) keep surface skin hydrated so it stays feeling firm and supple.
VITAMIN C AND ORGANIC LICORICE EXTRACT for a brighter-looking skin tone: help prevent UVB-induced pigmentation and inhibits tyrosinase activity, melanin synthesis and superoxide anion production, without affecting DNA synthesis.
POLYPHENOLS from ORGANIC GREEN TEA and ORGANIC GINGER EXTRACTS provide anti-glycation + anti-MMP protection: UV-induced glycation and MMP (Matrix metalloproteinase) destroy collagen and elastin, leading to loss of elasticity, increased wrinkles and skin dullness. Polyphenols strongly inhibit this damage to help stop the loss of elasticity and firmness.
