Nutroxsun® – Skin protection against the effects of sunlight

The skin is our largest organ and plays a significant role in protecting our body, so we should keep it as healthy as possible. Skin damage caused by long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation not only accelerates the aging process but can also lead to sunburn and even skin cancer.

Sunscreen is the most well-known way to protect the skin from UV radiation. However, its application is often insufficient. In up to 80% of cases, we expose ourselves to the sun during daily activities (and not during intentional tanning during vacations or sunny days). In addition, less than half of people use an adequate amount of sunscreen or apply it correctly.

After more than ten years of research, we have an efficient alternative solution for protecting the skin from UV radiation. NutroxSun® is a clinically proven natural combination of Mediterranean rosemary and grapefruit extracts that protects the skin against adverse environmental influences from the inside.

Nutroxsun® is an innovative combination of plant extracts for sun protection. Thanks to its unique effects, it won the 2022 Ingredient of the Year award in the "Beauty from Within" category in the prestigious Nutraingredients-USA Awards competition.

Biologically active substances in the form of phenols and diterpenes from rosemary and flavonoids from grapefruit serve these plants primarily to protect them from pests and help them adapt to demanding environmental light conditions. However, they are characterized by significant antioxidant activity and, in mutual combination, they act not only at the level of cells but can even penetrate DNA and thus protect it from damage.

In clinical studies, the positive effects of NutroxSun® were mainly manifested in:

  • Improving tolerance to UVB and UVA sunlight
  • Reducing the impact of oxidative stress
  • Increasing the minimum erythema dose allows you to stay longer in the sun without worrying about burning your skin
  • Three times faster skin recovery after excessive sun exposure
  • Increasing skin hydration and reducing the signs of skin aging
  • Softening of wrinkles and improvement of skin elasticity

With aging, we gradually lose collagen and other structural proteins 2). The skin gets thinner, becomes more sensitive, is subject to the formation of wrinkles and pigment spots, and loses its elasticity. After only 15 days of using Nutroxsun® at the minimum recommended dose of 100 mg, consumers reported the following:

  • Improvement of skin hydration
  • Increasing the skin firmness and elasticity (1)
  • Visible improvement in the overall appearance of the skin
  • Wrinkle reduction (1), and
  • Unification of skin tone

Rozmarín a stredomorský grapefruit sú rastliny, ktoré už tisícky rokov rastú na okraji Stredozemného mora. Na prežitie v prostredí s intenzívnym slnečným žiarením have developed adaptation mechanisms that protect them effectively. Based on the previous, Nutroxsun® was created to provide the skin with endogenous protection as effective as that used by these plants..
