All about Protection Cream Part 1

Are you already using Protection Cream but still have questions about it? Or are you wondering whether you should try Protection Cream? Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Protection Cream. 

WHAT IS PROTECTION CREAM, AND WHAT IS IT FOR?

Many people think of Protection Cream as a simple sunscreen. But it is so much more! Like a regular sunscreen, it offers superb, broad-spectrum protection against UVAs and UVBs, wit SPF 34. (Learn more about the difference between these two.

But like an anti-aging cream, it has strong, multilevel, cascading antioxidant agent, known as EmblicaTM. The patented 200 x concentrated Indian Gooseberries, Emblica, is high in pure Vitamin C and boosts the production of collagen, making the skin look firmer. Because EmblicaTM is high in antioxidants, it is able to boost the sun protection of the sunscreen agents used in Protection Cream, offering a stronger protection against UV rays. 

And like a moisturizing cream, it contains Hyaluronic Acid, which hydrates the skin by drawing moisture from the surrounding; It also has Panthenol, Vitamin B5 which strengthens skin’s natural moisture barrier, and Vitamin E from Grape Seed Oil and Jojoba Oil, which nourishes the skin. 

 

DO YOU USE CHEMICAL SUNSCREEN OR PHYSICAL SUNSCREEN?

We use both physical and chemical sunscreen agents! The main sunscreen agent we use is called UV Pearls, which combines the best of both physical and chemical sunscreens. Also known as Sunglasses for the Skin, UV Pearls encapsulate chemical sunscreen agents to prevent absorption into the skin. 

No concern about skin irritation

UV Pearls sit on the skin just like physical sunscreen, rather than getting absorbed into the skin, to absorb UV rays and dissipate them as heat, just like chemical sunscreen. And because of this encapsulation, chemical sunscreen does not come in contact with the skin, eliminating concerns about skin irritation. 

Effective for longer

Typically, chemical sunscreen degrades under the direct sunlight. Thanks to encapsulation, chemical sunscreen in the UV Pearls do not degrade as fast, making it effective for longer. 

Superb texture without white cast

Just like a chemical sunscreen, UV Pearls offer superb texture and spreadability with no white cast. 

 

WHAT MAKES PROTECTION CREAM MORE SPECIAL THAN JUST A REGULAR SUNSCREEN?

As mentioned earlier, Protection Cream is more than just a sunscreen. It is also an anti-aging moisturizer that repairs the skin. 

There are two features that make Protection Cream more special than just a regular sunscreen: UV Pearls and EmblicaTM. 

As mentioned earlier, UV Pearls offer combined benefits of physical and chemical sunscreen by having encapsulated chemical sunscreen. (See above for details on UV Pearls.)

EmblicaTM is an ingredient, derived from a plant called Phyllanthus emblica fruit, also known as Indian Gooseberries. This fruit is edible and was used in the Ayurvedic system of medicine for over thousands of years for a wide variety of human ailments. What makes this so special is that it uses a multilevel cascade of antioxidant compounds mentioned above to protect our skin against free radical damages, which causes degradation of collagen among many others. This means that the antioxidant effect of EmblicaTM is long lasting and more stable. 

Simply put, a free radical trying to damage our skin cells will have to go through not one, but THREE levels of antioxidants, composed of Emblicanin A, Emblicanin B, and Emblicanin Oligomers, in order to actually reach our skin cells. 

This is important because free radical damage causes inflammation, which damages AND ages our skin faster. (To learn more about inflammaging, click here.

 

CAN I USE IT ALONE, OR DO I NEED TO APPLY AN ESSENCE OR SERUM UNDERNEATH

Because Protection Cream is also an anti-aging, moisturizing cream, you do not need to apply a separate Essence or Serum underneath, especially in summer. If you have extremely dry skin, you can pair it with our All-in-One Essence, Vitamin C Serum, or Skin Firming Concentrate

If you have combination or oily skin, you can use it alone.

If your skin is dehydrated but not dry and you want a silky finish, you can pair it with All-in-One Essence Oil-Free.
