Hello Sunshine!

Hello Sunshine!

Heliocare® is a sun protection range that South Africans have come to love. The range boasts one very unique ingredient that has become it’s shining star in sun protection – the fern plant. What people love about it? The range protects against UVA and UVB rays, it has powerful anti-aging properties and is non-greasy (hell yeah). Heliocare has a 360° approach to skincare and that’s why we love it.


Heliocare® product line is created with the development of the Fernblock® technology, where standardized Polypodiym leucotomos extract, is the basis of all its products.

This exclusive Fernblock® technology emerged from the research of the Cantabria Labs group together with Dr. Fitzpatrick from Harvard University (Harvard Medical School) with the common purpose of developing a mechanism for sun protection.

The successive product development has been made possible due to the collaboration of great international experts in photoprotection and photobiology areas.

The product line was initially launched in the Spanish market and today it is present in more than 80 countries.


Heliocare® is the photoprotection line from pharmaceutical laboratory Cantabria Labs, leader in dermatological prescription.

Heliocare® offers a wide range of oral and topical photo protectors, with scientific proven efficacy. Moreover, Cantabria Labs is pioneer in complementing topical and oral photoprotection. Its oral formulations increase skin protection against solar damage, essential for all skin types, especially for sun intolerant or sensitive skins.

Its topical formulas combine Fernblock® with the most advanced filters and antioxidant and restorative ingredients offering the best coverage against solar damage.
