SunActin is an organic sunflower shoot extract that has been combined with natural vitamin E in a nanoemulsion. SunActin protects the skin against oxidative stress and complements the protective effect of sunscreens.

Several studies have shown the capacity of SunActin to inhibit the production of the MMPs that are responsible for the degradation of major skin components and boost the protective effect of sunscreens while neutralizing their oxidant effect.
