iS CLINICAL, a pharmaceutical grade cosmetic brand best known for the excellence of its product line that combines traditional botanical medicine with advanced scientific formulation expertise, has just expanded its family of sunscreens with two new SPF face and lip products: Extreme Protect SPF 40 and Liprotect SPF 35. I’ll explain.
Extreme Protect SPF 40 and Liprotect SPF 35 are designed with a fully physical, non-chemical sun protection formula, making them less irritating and suitable for more sensitive skin. In addition, their complex formulation makes them much more moisturising and restorative, so they not only protect the skin, but also act as a moisturising anti-ageing product.
Extreme Protect SPF 40 is an environmentally protected multi-level treatment formula that features patented Extremozyme technology® combined with all-physical and scientifically advanced sun protection assets: transparent micronized zinc oxide and transparent micronised titanium dioxide. “This broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen, rich in antioxidants and state-of-the-art, helps maintain optimal skin health by moisturising, smoothing, and softening, while protecting the skin by providing an antioxidant protective barrier, as well as reducing the risk of skin cancer.” – Aura Serras, director of iS CLINICAL Spain.
It is the perfect combination between Extreme Protect SPF 30 and Eclipse SPF 50+, as it has an intermediate coverage and a physical sun protection formulation like Eclipse, but with the patented Extremozyme technology of the SPF 30, making it have the best of both, in addition to offering three different shades to fit the tone of each skin as if it were a foundation.
Extreme Protect contains the Extremozyme® technology patented by iS CLINICAL, generated through microorganisms living in extreme climates: “Extremozymes are enzymes produced by plants living in extreme environments that help survival and adaptability. These adaptation miracles can also be used to protect human skin from damage caused by environmental extremes. We rely on the natural selection processes of specialised extremophilic organisms, pioneering the future of skin care in terms of maximum protection for healthy skin.
This technology not only protects the DNA of our skin, but in addition to protecting it, it repairs the damage already done to it, regenerating it. Its key ingredients: 1. Titanium dioxide, safe physical active sunscreen ingredient, non-irritating and non-allergenic. 2. Vitamin E, a highly effective moisturiser and an antioxidant that helps protect against the visual effects of photodamage. 3. Zinc oxide, physically active and safe sunscreen ingredient. 4. Extremozymes®, a proprietary combination of enzymes that is clinically proven to help protect the skin from environmental aggressors.
Liprotect SPF 35 is formulated for delicate lip skin, offering powerful broad-spectrum protection minimizing the visible effects of photodamage and pollutants. This antioxidant-rich treatment is more than just a lip balm, combining mild all-physical transparent sunscreen active ingredients with vitamin E and coconut oil. All this, to help condition the lips, while elderflower extract and linoleic acid help to defend against environmental aggressors.
Among its key ingredients: 1. Titanium dioxide, safe physical active sunscreen ingredient, non-irritating and non-allergenic. 2. Coconut oil, a moisturising and nutritious oil. 3. Zinc oxide, physically active and safe sunscreen ingredient. 4. Vitamin E, a highly effective moisturiser and antioxidant that helps protect against the visual effects of photodamage.
“This lip sunscreen, in addition to providing UVA/UVB protection, supports skin barrier function and stimulates collagen production by providing a firmer and youthful appearance to the lips”- Aura Serras.
Currently iS CLINICAL has a total of 5 sun protection products: Extreme Protect SPF 30, Eclipse SPF 50+, Eclipse SPF 50+ Perfect Tint Beige and finally Extreme Protect SPF 40 and Liprotect SPF 35. “We wanted to expand our sunscreen family to offer a wider range of different spectrums to our customers, as sun protection is one of the main bases for combating aging, the fundamental objective of iS CLINICAL. That’s why we wanted to launch two more products, one for lips, Liprotect SPF 35, which until now we didn’t have, and another for face, Extreme Protect SPF 40, which is the perfect combination between Extreme Protect SPF 30 and Eclipse SPF 50+.” Aura Serras.
I have used all the sunscreens by the brand over the last few years and I can only reaffirm what has been said: its benefits are infinite and that is why I will not change.
