This rich antioxidant blend of botanical oils is specifically chosen to achieve an unsurpassed synergy for renewing the skin where it counts – at the cellular level.
As with all of Benedetta's products, the Defense & Repair Oil is made with 100% botanical ingredients and is void of chemical SPFs, making it a reef safe product. Use the Defense & Repair products under your chemical free mineral block to protect your skin when in the sun or ocean for prolonged periods of time.
Benedetta's Ombra Del Sole is not intended to be a sunblock. When in the sun for a prolonged time, Ombra Del Sole is best used under a mineral block, particularly in and near water.
After years of seeing the protective and rejuvenating effects from using our Precious & Nourishing antioxidant facial oils, I set out to create a more intensive preparation—A formula that "naturally" protects as it corrected damaged skin. Ombra Del Sole utilizes water integration with usable filtering oils that aid the uptake of regenerative active ingredients.
My focus was on the renewal and health of the skin by protecting its immunity with nourishing oils and extracts rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are known scavengers that fight free radical damage. Free radical damage caused by UVA and UVB rays can cause cellular oxidation and in turn stimulate cells to become irregular.
The Ombra Del Sole is by no means going to replace a sunblock to prevent burning. There are no SPF's in the Ombra Del Sole. However, we have had great results from daily use when sun exposure is minimal.
For a healthy lifestyle I recommend the intake of antioxidants in foods as well as whole food supplements. Such systemic and conscious health practices are always your best bet against free radical damage from the sun and our environment.
