It does not replace the need for topical sunscreen, topical sunscreen is still your first line of defence against harmful UV rays.
Why Ultra D?
Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones, and we get most of ours from sunlight. Sunscreen products can reduce the sun's adverse effects, but it also inhibits the body's production of vitamin D. With Ultra D, it contains 5µg of Vitamin D to help replenish reduced Vitamin D when you use sunscreen products.
How to use?
Take one capsule in the morning when spending extended periods outdoors in the daylight. Heliocare Oral Supplements aren't a replacement for the use of topical sun protection. Use in combination with the application of your favourite Heliocare® 360° Cream or Gel.
Don't exceed the stated recommended daily consumption. Food supplements shouldn't be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

Formulated with 480mg of the key ingredient, Fernblock®, it has the excellent antioxidant property to reduce free radicals by up to 50%, preventing the formation of hyperpigmentation caused by UV rays. Heliocare Ultra Oral also protects the entire skin surface, increasing the skin’s resistance against sunburn by up to 300%. The protection from Fernblock® also slows down skin ageing by up to 55% through the inhibition of collagen depletion caused by UVA. Fernblock® has been extensively researched in Harvard Medical School for more than 12 years.
Every Heliocare product contains Fernblock®, a powerful natural ingredient that is unique to the Heliocare® range. Fernblock® comes from the fern Polypodium Leucotomos. Over time, this plant has developed a protective mechanism from the sun. Fernblock® harnesses this natural plant power to benefit the skin in so many ways, including defending skin cells from damage caused by the sun and protecting our skin cell DNA. It’s the result of years of research and is backed by significant clinical data.
Many of us reach for sunscreen when it’s sunny, but did you know that UVA, visible light and infrared-A can damage your skin all year round? All these rays are emitted by the sun and are powerful enough to penetrate clouds and glass - so even on the cloudiest days, our skin is still at risk.
Visible light and infrared-A protection:
Visible light and infrared-A have also been shown to cause damage to the skin and lead to premature skin ageing. Heliocare contains a Biosheild system that protects skin against visible light - like our own melanin, but much more powerful - and combats damage specifically caused by infrared-A.
Heliocare products contain a combination of mineral and non-mineral filters to absorb and scatter the sun’s rays. This combination allows high levels of protection in a range of beautiful formulations. The Heliocare Mineral Tolerance Fluid is the only exception to this, as it contains only mineral filters. Its advanced formulation means that it feels light and silky and leaves no white residue on the skin, a common issue with many mineral-only products.
DNA repair enzymes
DNA damage is a core component of sun damage, rendering the affected cells ineffective and, in the worst cases, causing mutations. Every Heliocare product contains powerful DNA repair enzymes that not only help to repair the damage but prevent additional damage from happening.
As well as the unique and powerful Fernblock®, Heliocare also contains additional anti-oxidants to help boost the health of the skin, including green tea extract, vitamins C and E.
*Do not take it during pregnancy or when you are breastfeeding
