This product has been formulated according to the ecobiological approach of the NAOS Laboratories to take care of you. At the heart of this product :

To protect itself from cellular damage related to sun exposure, the skin relies on natural protective mechanisms that can sometimes prove to be insufficient. This patented complex reinforces the skin cells’ natural defence system to increase their resistance to the negative effects of solar radiation. The patent has been reinforced with Anti-Pollution active ingredient to offer a specific biological protection against extreme conditions such as UV and pollution.
