Ingredient Spotlight: Preventhelia

In this post, we're going to spotlight a key ingredient, Preventhelia, which has been shown to protect the skin from AND reverse the effects of UV damage. 

Preventhelia is a peptide, and it's written on labels by its technical name:  diaminopropionoyl tripeptide-33.

Yeah, that's a mouthful!  But, regardless of what it's called, let's talk about why it works.


So, there you have it!  Preventhelia is a remarkable peptide offering photoprotection and repair to the skin both during and after sun exposure. 

Which of our products contain this restorative and protective peptide? 

Every single one of our face lotions and serums contain Preventhelia.  For maximum sun protection and repair, we recommend Shade in a Bottle Day & Night Lotion or Beach Bum After Sun Serum.
