Dermaceutic Derma Defense SPF 50 is a brand new 3 in 1 cream which takes care of an optimal skin hydration, protects against sun damage (SPF 50) and provides for complexion homogenization and skin radiance.

Key ingredients:

  • Xylitol – a sugar alcohol used as a substitute for sugar in the flavouring of many toothpastes and gums. It is found naturally in various berries, corn husks, oats, and mushrooms and is also used in skin care products as a humectant. It helps the skin retain its natural moisture and boost its levels of Hyaluronic Acid, a natural lubricant that assists in collagen production. Xylitol also improves the skin's barrier function and increase ceramide (a natural hydrating compound) synthesis.
  • Pigments – to homogenize the skin complexion
  • Licorice Extract – to suppress tyrosinase. Tyrosinase activity is very important: If uncontrolled during the synthesis of melanin, it results in increased melanin synthesis. Decreasing tyrosinase activity has been targeted for the betterment or prevention of conditions related to the hyperpigmentation of the skin, such as melasma and age spots.
  • UV Filters and Vitamin E Ester – to protect against UV damage

It is available in 2 shades for optimal coverage: 

  • Light Shade for skin phototypes I and II
