"Sun Defend & Restore SPF 45+" is an elegant, lightweight, oil free, non-tinted, anti-aging sun screen utilizing 9.0% micronized zinc oxide and 7.5% octinoxate (OMC) to DEFEND your skin from damage by UV rays and the elements. This innovative sun screen includes the multi-functional anti-aging active ingredients Phytosan K, Gatuline Age Defense 2, and Gatuline Skin Repair Bio to RESTORE the skin damage caused by previous exposure to UV rays and the elements. Phytosan K is an organic ingredient derived from soy bean extract that aids in stimulating Collagen I production, preventing photo-aging by boosting the skin’s natural resistance to UV rays and “managing” the cells’ DNA. It stimulates proteins in the skin to repair DNA damage. If the cell cannot repair the DNA damage, then it is stimulated to die naturally, so that the damaged cells, which can rapidly grow and lead to skin diseases and cancer, are not allowed to divide and grow as damaged skin cells. Gatuline Age Defense 2 is EcoCertified and is derived from green walnuts from tree groves overlooking the Alps. It aids the skin’s cells to organize their own defenses against the extrinsic and chronological signs of aging protecting against oxidative stress, UVB-induced programmed cell death, and skin erythema or irritation. The manufacturer’s studies show it to be significantly more efficacious than Vitamin C in improved protein synthesis, to prevent elastin fibers from degrading thereby keeping the skin firmer and to aid in boosting cell metabolism slowing down the aging process of the cell. Gatuline Skin Repair Bio is an EcoCertified ingredient derived from cotton thistle that aids in restructuring and repairing the epidermal layer of the skin by stimulating the skin’s ability to repair itself. In the manufacturer’s study, the skin was exposed to high levels of UVB radiation to simulate burned skin. This ingredient improved skin regeneration and repair even in burned skin, and improved cellular cohesion resulting in better skin barrier function. Another study showed that the dermal regeneration resulted in increased collagen production and hence improvement in the appearance of wrinkle depth and firmness. Sun Defend & Restore SPF 45+ is truly an anti-aging product that masquerades itself as a sun screen. SkinWithin recognizes that everyone should wear daily sun protection, so there is no better product to wear every day than a product that protects you from UV damage while at the same time providing strong anti-aging benefits.
