Why Heliocare isn’t like any other SPF!
Ever wondered what it would be like to use a luxury, medical and effective SPF? Ever tried Helio care? Ever tried a protection and repair SPF?
Look no further! Heliocare is one of the specially selected medical skin care brands used at Kingswood Parks Clinics. Helio care is not like your general sunscreen (SPF) as it not only offers mineral and non mineral filters from UVA and UVB rays, artificial light and inferred light but also helps with skin repair! Meaning you get the benefit of all round protection while repairing and protecting the skin and its barrier.
Helio care is known for its patented Fernblock® technology and is described by Helio care direct; ‘Fernblock® comes from the fern Polypodium Leucotomos. Over time, this plant has developed a protective mechanism from the sun. Fernblock® harnesses this natural plant power to benefit the skin in so many ways, including defending skin cells from damage caused by the sun and protecting our skin cell DNA’. It’s the result of years of research and is backed by significant clinical data.
What are Mineral and Non-Mineral filters?
Mineral; Titanium Dioxide, an inorganic, highly stable sunscreen. This ingredient is most typically used alongside Zinc Oxide and is known for its physical block. Unlike chemical filters physical filters work by blocking UV lights and scatter the rays from the skin, meaning we don’t get as much absorption rate from the UV rays.
Non-Mineral; there are many forms of non-mineral filters in Helio Care 360 such as Ethylhexyl Triazone and Diethylhexyl Butamido Triazon. These new generation chemical filters help protect against UVA and UVB rays and are very photostable meaning it doesn’t break down to light or radiant energy. Chemical filters work by absorbing the UV radiation within them and not the skin.
This dual effect of mineral and non-mineral filters offers a full broad spectrum of protection. Not all the products contain both types of filters depending on your skin type/skin condition. Some are dual filters, full mineral, and some all non-mineral.
As well as being full of filters the Helio care range have antioxidants in them to protect against free radicals, pollution and harmful gasses in the air that can microscopically damage the skin over time. This range of antioxidants help with not only protecting the skin but have brightening properties, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anticariogenic. All while enhancing the properties of the photoprotection.
Am I suitable to use this range?
Absolutely! This amazing sunscreen has many different products within the range to help complement your skin type as well as helping with skin conditions. So, if you have dry skin, oily/acne prone skin, suffer with actinic keratosis/pigmentation these products can help protect your concerns while treating them. Sometimes you just want a healthy glow and this can provide that too! As well as adult protection they also offer mineral and non mineral sunscreens for children, designed to sooth and hydrate while protecting the skin.
