Fernblock Technology – A Natural Sun Protection Extract From Polypodium leucotomos to Fernblock Technology Fernblock Technology is the basis of all HELIOCARE products. It is derived from the natural extract Polypodium leucotomos, from a fern grown in Central America, which develops defense and repairing mechanisms from the sun. Polypodium leucotomos has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for the treatment of inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis or topical dermatitis. The extract process allows Cantabria Labs to obtain a highly concentrated extract, Fernblock in order to maximize the biological properties of Polypodium leucotomos. This commitment to scientific rigour based on the Fernblock formulation is what sets Heliocare apart. When you use Heliocare you know you’re using a sunscreen range you can rely on. Fernblock properties The exclusive Fernblock technology helps protect your skin from the harmful effects of solar radiation. Providing four levels of protection: DNA protection Sun affects the genetic components in our cells, its DNA. Little by little, over a lifetime mutations can be harmful. Antioxidant protection Fernblock has a strong antioxidant action, especially over those generated by solar radiation. These free radicals produced by the sun are responsible for cell damage, blemishes and cutaneous photoaging. Immune System protection The sun affects our skin defense mechanisms. Langerhans cells act as a radar, detecting hazards and activating our defenses. Solar radiation damages those cells, reducing immune function. Fernblock protects and regulates our immune system.
