The anti-stress molecule
Shop Ultrasun’s Face formulas have the added benefits of clinically proven, premium skin care actives that are carefully selected to target specific concerns. All our face formulas contain Ectoin which is derived from an amino acid and often referred to as the natural “anti-stress molecule”. This rare enzyme was discovered in the Dead Sea in 1985 and extensive research has found it to exist in extreme climates where it protects living cells, this type of protective molecule is known as extremolyte.
Ectoin surrounds itself, other proteins and cell membranes in a coat of stabilising water to protect from allergens and pollutants, reducing irritation. It prevents the release of stress mediators which trigger inflammation and the mutation of cells caused by UV rays. This helps to calm redness, irritation and soothe sensitivity.
Including Ectoin in your skincare regime significantly increases and balances hydration levels as the molecule accumulates water, increasing hydration levels up to 7 days after application and defending against fluctuating environmental stresses whilst improving elasticity to leave it smooth and plump.
Ultrasun encapsulate broad spectrum UV filters and skincare actives including Ectoin into Lamellar technology which penetrates deep into the skin layers where it is anchored in the stratum corneum gradually releasing the actives for long lasting results.
