The skin is the largest organ in the human body weighing approximately ten pounds and covering an area of about 16 square feet. Our skin protects us from heat, cold, excessive water loss, and pathogens. It also provides us with sensory information about the nature of the external world. The skin is also an excretory organ, removing toxins from the body via perspiration.
Cross-linked (glycated) proteins are classic characteristics of apparent skin aging. Cross-linked proteins in the skin result in an unsightly leathery appearance.2
While some sunscreens can prevent sunburn, they fail to protect against free radicals that are generated in response to solar radiation.64 Free radicals not only destroy the skin’s youthful support structure, but their DNA-mutating effect increases their harmful effects on skin.64,65 Startling findings reveal that conventional sunscreens may not prevent skin damage.66
Studies have shown that topically applied antioxidants can suppress damaging free radicals.67-72 Life Extension has developed a cream that provides full-spectrum defense against all three types of ultraviolet radiation (short-wave UVA, long-wave UVA, and UVB). The formula’s SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 offers significant protection.
Total Sun Protection Cream contains standardized extracts of green tea, grape seed, silibinin, licorice, rosemary, and curcumin, along with the three most powerful sun-blocking agents. Total Sun Protection Cream is further enhanced with Phytosome™ Recovery Complex that binds antioxidant plant extracts to soy phospholipids, enhancing the delivery of the active ingredients into the skin.
