Fernblock

Fernblock is extracted from Polypodium leucotomos, a fern originating in Central America. Originally an aquatic plant, it adapted to life on land, developing its own natural protective mechanisms against UV radiation.

It was used for centuries by Native Americans as an anti-inflammatory agent in the treatment of dermatological conditions such s psoriasis and atopic dermatitis (eczema).

Fernblock is an all-natural antioxidant extract and is composed of 4 Polyphenols: Ferulic acid, Caffeic acid, Cinnamic acid and Vanillic acid.

It can be used both topically (on the skin) or orally. It inhibits generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production induced by UV including superoxide anion. It also prevents damage to the DNA but it does not contain DNA repair enzymes such as those in sunscreens that contain Fernblock+

The extracts from Fernblock are obtained from selected plants under carefully controlled conditions. No pesticides or chemicals used. Strict laboratory procedures according to pharmaceutical quality standards are employed to ensure complete safety and efficacy.
