SwingXV is proud to be partners with Heliocare to promote and equip players with the right sun protection to train freely while keeping their skin healthy
Heliocare is known for having the world's first Oral Sunblock. Its base active ingredient is Fernblock, an exclusive standardised extract of Polypodium Leucotomos which brings new levels of sun protection to the skin. Not only does it protect your skin from UV rays, it prevents skin cancer, reduces hyperpigmentation and collagen depletion
Developed under strict pharmaceutical quality standards to ensure efficacy and safety, with over 60 publications in leading international scientific & medical journals, it's now the daily protection of our Coaches and Players
Origin and Development
Fernblock® technology arose from research by the Cantabria Labs Group together with the research team of Dr. Fitzpatrick 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 capable of preventing long-term negative effects such as DNA damage, skin aging, loss of defences or sun allergies. Fernblock protects against the sun’s 4 radiations (UVB-UVA-VL-IR), neutralises free radicals and repairs sun damage both inside and out.
Our extraction method is what guarantees maximum efficacy and safety: It is obtained from selected plants that grow under controlled conditions in laboratory processes according to Pharmaceutical Quality Standards
Fernblock® protection levels
Fernblock® has shown numerous benefits, both topically and orally, in more than 50 studies and scientific publications. The effectiveness of this technology continues to be investigated with excellent results. In addition, its extraction method has been optimised, enhancing its activity and resulting in a new generation extract: Fernblock®+.
Prevention of photoaging and pigmentation control
Fernblock® technology protects our skin cells and increases collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin, fundamental components to maintain its structure. This prevents wrinkle formation and loss of firmness. It also helps reduce the intensity and size of sun spots and improves skin resistance to pigmentation.
Fernblock® enhances HELIOCARE Sunscreen Activity
New clinical data show that HELIOCARE topical sunscreen (sun filters + Fernblock®) offers significant advantages with respect to sunscreen containing only sun filters.
While sun filters alone can provide benefits beyond simply increasing MED, the addition of Fernblock® to topical sunscreen can significantly increase the photoimmunoprotection activity of the formulation, further reducing erythema, MMP-1 and pigmentation and protecting DNA and Langerhans cells.
HELIOCARE sunscreens, with HELIOCARE’s exclusive Fernblock® Technology, go beyond traditional sun filter protection by providing advanced Dermatological Sun protection for the prevention of photoaging and skin cancer.
