Triple Your Sun Protection with Mineral SPF + Vitamin C + FRÉ's Proprietary Antioxidant Patent

Triple Your Sun Protection with Mineral SPF + Vitamin C + FRÉ's Proprietary Antioxidant Patent

Your skin is exposed to the sun every day of the year (yes, even when it’s cloudy!). This causes UV damage, including sunburn, photoaging, and skin cancer. In order to protect your skin from UV damage, sunscreen is your most important skincare asset.

Let’s take a deep dive into boosting your sun protection by combining healthy, mineral sunscreen with FRÉ’s exclusive patent, Argania Active Complex™, and vitamin C. This combination will triple the effectiveness of your suncare!


Sunscreen protects skin from UV damage
We all agree that we need to wear sunscreen to protect our skin, but how does sunscreen work? Sunscreen stops ultraviolet (UV) rays from penetrating your skin. When sunlight, which contains UVA and UVB rays, penetrates your skin, it triggers free radicals (unstable atoms). These free radicals, in turn, damage skin cell DNA and collagen fibers. Sometimes you can see UV damage right away as a sunburn; this type of damage is caused by UVB rays. But usually, you cannot see the UV damage right away, because it happens in the deeper layers of your skin. Over time, this deeper UV damageaccumulates and becomes visible, appearing on the skin as wrinkles, lines, dark spots, sagging skin, etc. This type of damage is called photoaging and is caused by UVA rays.

Only sunscreens labeled “broad spectrum” protect skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Zinc oxide is a natural mineral that protects skin from both UVA and UVB rays. It is an active ingredient used in mineral sunscreens. Zinc oxide is not absorbed by the skin, but lays like a shield on top of the skin. It reflects UVA and UVB rays, preventing sunlight from penetrating the skin, thus protecting the skin from UV damage.

Zinc oxide is a natural mineral that protects skin from both UVA and UVB rays.

All of FRÉ’s sunscreens are mineral sunscreens, providing broad spectrum UV protection with non-nano zinc oxide. They do not contain any harmful chemicals or potential  endocrine disruptors like chemical sunscreens, so they are safe for your skin and the planet.


FRÉ’s patent defends against photoaging
FRÉ’s anti-aging patent, Argania Active Complex™, combines argan oil with the stem cells and leaf water of the resilient desert argan tree. These three argan elements form an antioxidant powerhouse that fight free radical aggressors and work synergistically to minimize the damaging effects of sun on the skin. The complex slows the oxidative process to fight UV damage, minimizing the signs of photoaging like fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dark spots and leathery texture.

FRÉ’s anti-aging patent slows the oxidative process to fight UV damage, minimizing the signs of photoaging.

All of FRÉ’s sunscreens are enriched with Argania Active Complex™. The ultra lightweight and fast-absorbing sunscreens protect your skin from damaging UV rays, while combating photoaging.


Vitamin C fights free radicals
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that fights free radical damage caused by UV exposure by stabilizing free radicals and protecting skin cells. It enhances the effectiveness of your sunscreen, working in synergy to combat the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays. In addition, vitamin C helps to fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Daily application of vitamin C will reduce the appearance of dark spots, leaving you with a smoother and more even complexion.

Vitamin C fights free radical damage caused by UV exposure by stabilizing free radicals and protecting skin cells. 

In order to reap the benefits of vitamin C for your skin, you should apply vitamin C topically to any areas of skin that are exposed to sunlight before applying your sunscreen. The topical application of vitamin C is 20 times more effective than eating a diet rich in vitamin C. So while it is great to enjoy orange juice with a well-rounded breakfast, applying a vitamin C serum to your skin every morning is the most effective way to protect against and repair damage caused by UV rays. 

C ME,  FRÉ’s vitamin C serum, contains 10% VC-IP (Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate). It is an advanced form of Vitamin C that remains in skin cells up to 80 times longer than L-ascorbic acid (the typical form of vitamin C on the market) and has 4 times the effect on skin.


Making 3 powerful ingredients part of your daily skincare routine
Every morning, after cleansing your face, apply  C ME  vitamin C serum. Your skin will absorb the waterless formula instantly and the unique geranium and citrus scent will supercharge your senses. Finish your morning routine with  PROTECT ME  mineral SPF 30 moisturizer. This lightweight sunscreen provides broad spectrum mineral protection with non-nano zinc oxide and Argania Active Complex™. 

The best sun protection
The combination of mineral sunscreen,Argania Active Complex™, and vitamin C work together synergistically. They boost each other’s abilities, reducing free radicals that cause skin damage and fading pigmentation, making them a powerhouse of skin protection. Using these 3 powerful ingredients together each morning has been shown to be more effective in preventing and repairing UV damage than when each ingredient is applied alone.
