WHAT IS SO UNIQUE ABOUT IT? A) UV PROTECTION
Completely invisible to the naked eye, the chemical UV filters are encapsulated in small transparent micro-caps of 1 µm (1 micrometre). 1 µm remains invisible to the naked eye but is equally too large to be absorbed into the skin and the body.The broad-spectrum sun filters lie like sunglasses on the skin, but no longer 'in' the skin, which makes NANNIC UV SHIELD particularly suitable for the sensitive skin of both adults and children.
In this way the sunscreen is able to transform the energy of the sun's rays into harmless vibrating energy, such as heat. The capsule is also reflective, so it helps to reflect radiation back into the atmosphere. NANNIC UV SHIELD protects against both UVA (ageing) and UVB (burning).
B) AN ACTIVE ANTI-AGEING TREATMENT
We now know that UVA is responsible for skin ageing! The strongest UVA-absorbing compounds in nature are mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs). We find these in different marine organisms, such as red algae, cyanobacteria and coral. The natural filtering power of these amino acids is similar to those of existing chemical UVA filters, but they do not have a toxic effect. In addition to the micro-caps, Nannic also added red algae (porphyraumbilicalis) to UV Shield. This algae offers an effective natural alternative to traditional chemical filters and also fights skin ageing. In vivo studies show that with these red algae extracts, Nannic UV Shield reduces skin ageing. Wrinkles fade, the elasticity and suppleness of the skin visibly improve and the negative effects of UVA radiation such as lipid peroxidation and free radicals are reduced. With daily use, crow's feet and deep wrinkles will be visibly decreased. The skin becomes youthful, fresh and supple once again.
C) PROTECTION EVEN OVER YOUR MAKE-UP
NANNIC UV-SHIELD can be applied very quickly, even over your make-up, does not feel greasy and dries quickly.
How to use? Use daily to maintain beautiful, young skin: spray on face, neck, décolletage and hands. For optimal UV protection, repeat every 2 to 3 hours. (Regular application of a lower factor offers more intense protection than a single application of a very high protection factor).
