The powerful antioxidant formula in each HelioCare™ capsule is naturally derived from the extract of a fern native to Central and South America. This fern, Polypodium leucotomos (PLE) has been used for centuries as a remedy for skin related conditions.
Once an aquatic plant PLE fern has adapted to life on land and created its own protection from exposure to harsh UV rays. By using this organically grown extract, HelioCare™ delivers antioxidants that protect the skin from the first day you use it.
HelioCare™ active extract contains antioxidants which aid in eliminating free radicals produced by sun exposure. A reduction in these potentially dangerous radicals help maintain younger-looking and more resilient skin.
Sunscreens play an important role in protecting your skin from the sun. However, many environmental factors can reduce the effectiveness of your topical sunscreen including weather, location, and what you are doing in the sun. For example sweating and swimming will compromise your sunscreen effectiveness.
