Oral Sunscreen - What's That And How On Earth Does That Work?

You’ve been applying sunscreen religiously over your face and body, but you don’t seem to be able to get an “even coverage” throughout the entire body - especially on the backs, neckline etc.

Ever noticed that "invisible watch" on your wrists from uneven sun exposure?  Well, an oral sun screen helps solve that!

Oral Sunscreen

So, what exactly are oral sunscreens and how on earth do they work? Oral sunscreens are antioxidants called polypodium leucotomos. Once ingested, they slow down the rate of burn of a person’s skin when exposed to ultraviolet rays. Oral sunscreens also help boost the skin’s antioxidant system. Not only do they protect your skin from sun damage, they can also help combat signs of premature aging. 

With oral sunscreen, any skin areas not covered by topical sunscreens can also be protected from the damaging UV rays of the sun. On top of providing great convenience suitable for our hectic lifestyles, oral sunscreens, when used in conjunction with quality topical sunscreen, help provide optimal sun protection for our skin.

Heliocare: Our Customers’ Favourite Oral Sunscreen

Heliocare is the world’s first brand that has invested millions of dollars into producing high-quality oral sunscreen. The brand has been extensively researched and tested for its safety and effectiveness and there are no known-side effects to the consumption of these oral sunscreen. Trusted by many leading dermatologists, Heliocare is one of the top oral supplement brands in the market.

Here are two products under the Heliocare brand that we recommend:


Heliocare Ultra Oral is a sun protectant that comes in the form of a capsule. The key ingredient in Heliocare Ultra Oral is the patented Fernblock, an antioxidant that reduces free radicals by up to 50%. This key ingredient helps prevent hyperpigmentation from forming, protect against sunburn and slow down skin aging. Fernblock is an extract derived from ferns that provides a natural mechanism for human beings against sun radiation.

Other ingredients in this product include Lutein, Lycopene, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E; which protect you from the harmful UV rays of the sun and act as an armor against sunburn. The combined ingredients also help prevent premature aging and hyperpigmentation. It is often recommended by doctors and aesthetics doctors to their patients with sensitive skins and to be used after aesthetics treatment.


Heliocare Purewhite Radiance helps to achieve a more radiant and fairer skin. The capsules contain Pomegranate extract, L-Cystine, vitamin C and B3, and also once again Fernblock that reaches for the deeper hyperpigmentation and lightens the pigmentation from inside out. This is unlike other products that only cover the outer surface of the skin. This unique mixture of ingredients control and block the enzyme that produces melanin in the body. You can also have the Heliocare Purewhite Radiance Max 240 for an additional boost.

Ceramiracle: A New Range Of Sun Defense Supplement And Skin Brightening Supplement

Can Oral Sunscreens Replace Sunscreen? 

Oral sunsunscreen is an excellent way to supplement your suncare routine-- think of it as a type of skin vitamin which can be consumed to keep your skin glowing and healthy.  However, the use of oral sunscreen alone is inadequate to provide optimal sun protection. Conversely, the use of only topical sunscreen is also insufficient to provide the needed protection.  Hence, it is essential to use both oral sunscreens, in combination with quality sunscreens to ensure optimal protection against UV rays and Infraradiation rays to protect the skin and keep it happy and healthy!
