Light blockers like ethylhexyl methoxycinnamates are chemical weapons. There is nothing more to be said about them. Therefore, no light blockers are used in Belico preparations for daily care.
The only other option is to use sun-care products with physical light blockers, i. e. light-reflecting minerals like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.
To ensure a high degree of light blocking, say, SPF 20 or more, they should be dosed so high that unacceptable whiteness is produced on the skin. Physical light blockers that do not whiten are in the nanoparticle range. Nanoparticles are suspected to overcome the cerebral barrier and damage the brain.
Conclusion: Proper risk balance is needed in light protection: sunburn, skin cancer and premature ageing of the skin versus light blockers with potential side effects.
Belico SUN CARE I SPF 50 applies a mixture of physical and chemical light blockers so that the chemical stress on the skin can be kept as low as possible. However, an SPF 20 as it is found in SUN CARE II can be reached with very moderate light blocking dosages.
We recommend to apply sun products sensibly and at the right time, to avoid sun and solarium and to protect your skin also with textiles.
