ADVANCED UVA/UVB SUN FILTER SYSTEM
As suncare specialists, we use innovative technologies to make sure you achieve the right balance of colour and protection whenever you enjoy the sun.
Each of the advanced UVA/UVB sun filter systems is a powerful sun protection technology developed by Johnson & Johnson. They offer effective photostable, broad‐spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and help achieve that PIZ BUIN® sunscreens comply with the latest European regulations.
All of the advanced UVA/UVB sun filter systems help to protect from UVA and UVB radiation.
UVB rays - "burning rays" - harm the skin’s surface and are the main cause of sunburn.
UVA rays – “ageing rays” - penetrate deeper and damage collagen and elastin, which can result in premature skin ageing and cancer.
The advanced UVA/UVB sun filter systems contain both UVA and UVB filters to protect against the sun and long term skin damage while also protecting against the more serious effects of UVA radiation. They cover most of the UVA / UVB spectrum, offering broadband protection for your skin.
The plant, Feverfew, grows in the mountain scrub and rocky soil of the Balkan Peninsula. The PIZ BUIN® parent company, Johnson & Johnson, has patented this innovative extract for use in skincare, applying a new extraction process that keeps the active ingredients and eliminates unwanted components that could cause allergies.
How does FEVERFEW PFE™ help your skin?
FEVERFEW PFE™ plant extract is a highly effective soothing and antioxidant ingredient. In vitro studies prove that it has greater antioxidant boosting activity than other leading extracts including sage, green tea, black tea, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. It helps relieve redness of skin, repairs skin cell DNA damaged by UV rays, and strengthens skin cell resilience to the sun*. Its efficacy has been proven by several years of extensive research, performed by the PIZ BUIN® brand’s parent company, Johnson & Johnson, with several patents covering its application in the skin care and cosmetic fields.
