Shop Ophrys

Made in Switzerland, the Ophrys Sun Care range has been formulated using highly effective modern chemical sunblocks and a physical sunblock, Titanium dioxide. In addition, Ophrys contains a unique film forming agent (polymethylmethacrylate) which allows the sunblock to be easily applied in a thin and homogenous layer over the skin.

The percentage of each sun block ingredient used has been selected to optimize the protection against both UVB and UVA wavelength radiation, which occurs in the regions of 290-320 and 320-400 respectively, thereby the Ophrys sun care line can accurately claim to grant “broad based protection”.

The active sunblocks used are stable to radiation and do not permeate the skin surface, additionally all are approved for inclusion in sun care products according to the European Directive EU (1223/09).

Titanium dioxide included in the formulation is a physical sunblock and is not the micronized grade, deliberately so. Ophrys does not use the micronized grade of Titanium dioxide in order to avoid the formation of free radicals (Smijs and Pavel Nanotechnol Sci Appl. 2011, 4: 95-112). This avoidance of free radicals ensures that the topical sunblock formulation used is both more stable and provides anti-ageing properties.

The result is a highly effective sun care that provides high SPF protection against the damaging rays of the sun (UVA and UVB), helps to reduce the signs of premature ageing and works to promote soft, healthy and beautifully hydrated skin.
