The main ingredient in Sun Armour, Polypodium Leucotomos Extract (PLE), is an extract from a tropical fern found in the rainforests Central and South America. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, ‘the main understanding is that Polypodium Leucotomos acts as an antioxidant, so it protects the skin from oxidative damage caused by sun exposure’. Studies from Harvard University found that oral Polypodium Leucotomos was associated with a significant decrease in UV- related skin damage. This is supported by many other studies on healthy volunteers which have looked at its UV protection benefits.
Daily use of Sun Armour gradually builds up your natural defenses against the sun to promote healthier and younger-looking skin. The powerful antioxidant compound in PolyPro decreases ultraviolet free-radicals from causing oxidative damage which leads to mutations and sometimes skin damage.
