Sun exposure, and therefore UV rays, is the most compromising factor for skin health as it accelerates premature skin aging, causing sunspots and skin disorders. Whatever the season or sun exposure level, wearing an appropriate sunscreen is essential, and probably the most important, step in every skincare routine to prevent signs of skin aging and sunspots. 


Biological skin aging is characterized by the progressive reduction in the capacities of skin cells to regenerate or to defend against the most aggressive factors such as UV rays

As an example, areas that are exposed to the sun differ from those which are protected. Wrinkles and fine lines may appear progressively, and when sun exposure is increased, any change in pigment spots will be visible. UV rays damage collagen - the most important biological constituent of the skin that shapes the structure of the dermis. Exposure to solar radiation will generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) which are the primary cause of skin damage and photo-aging.

There is evidence that UV rays promote cancer development, and that sun prevention is a fundamental step in preventing skin cancers. 

We offer the most effective solutions through cosmeceuticals containing very high sun protection, formulated to optimally protect skin from sun damage.

First, let’s understand what are the bad effects on your skin while it is exposed to the sun? 

  • Wrinkles or sagging skin: As we age, skin slows down its production of collagen, the protein that maintains skin elasticity and helps your skin stay plump. Bad life habits can influence collagen production and therefore lead to premature wrinkles or sagging skin. 

  • Hyperpigmentation: Patchy discolorations can appear on your skin. Very similar to sunspots, they can be caused by damage to the melanin cells in your skin. 

  • Sunspots: Hyper-pigmented spots that may develop on your face, forearms, and the back of your hand. They are generally caused by years of sun exposure.

  • Melasma: it manifests with dark patches that can be located on the forehead, cheeks, nose, upper lip, or chin. It is sometimes referred to as the mask of pregnancy due to the fact that it can be triggered by an increase in hormones in pregnant women. Melasma generally results from two particular causes: hormone fluctuations and sun exposure.

How to fight these signs of premature aging?  

Effectively protecting your skin throughout the day from UVA and UVB rays by wearing an SPF 50+ every day can help prevent premature signs of skin aging and maintain healthy skin.

Do you know the difference between UVA & UVB?

  • UVA rays deeply penetrate the skin and play a major part in the skin aging process causing wrinkles and sunspots.

  • UVB rays are mostly responsible for sunburn and skin reddening. They play a large part in the development of skin cancers including melanoma.

This is why it is important to protect your skin every day with a high SPF. 

What does SPF 50+ mean? 

The SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of a sunscreen is a measure of how well it protects the skin from sunburns and UVB rays.
The number 50 is related to the amount of time your skin is protected from the sun. Meaning that it would take 50 times longer for your skin to burn than if you do not wear sunscreen protection.
The + mention indicates that it must provide at least SPF50 in testing.

Do you know the difference between organic & inorganic sunscreen?  

  • Organic sunscreens more commonly known under the term chemical, absorb UVA & UVB rays before they damage the skin.

  • Inorganic sunscreens more commonly known under the term mineral, are zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. They protect you from the sun by sitting on top of your skin and physically blocking or reflecting harmful rays.
