Product description:

Foreseen Shield Nopal is a natural, active plant cell derived from the Opuntia Ficus Indica, also known as the Nopal cactus. It has a wide range of cosmetic applications including anti-ageing, brightening and protective properties. Foreseen Shield Nopal is not only able to reduce irritation and limit DNA damage, but also reduce damage caused by UVB rays and pigmentation caused by UVB exposure.


One of the most important benefits of Foreseen Shield Nopal is its ability to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Sun exposure is essential for maintaining good health, but it can also be dangerous for the skin. The harmful effects of UVB rays can lead to wrinkles, age spots and other signs of premature ageing. By using Foreseen Shield Nopal, you can help limit the damage caused by these rays and keep your skin looking younger and healthier.


In vitro studies have shown that Foreseen Shield Nopal effectively reduces DNA fragmentation caused by UVB rays. In addition to its ability to protect against DNA damage, Foreseen Shield Nopal has also been shown to lower levels of IL-8 and IL-10, two cytokines that play a role in regulating the inflammatory response. At concentrations of 0.1%, 0.2% and 0.5%, Foreseen Shield Nopal was able to reduce IL-8 levels by up to 31% after exposure to UVB rays for 24 hours. Similarly, IL-10 levels were reduced by up to 26% at the same concentrations.


Foreseen Shield Nopal has also been shown to increase lymphocyte proliferation when applied at concentrations of 0.1%, 0.2% and 0.5%. This result is consistent with the observed decrease in the immunomodulatory interleukins IL-8 and IL-10 and suggests that Foreseen Shield Nopal has a positive impact on the immune system.


In addition to these in vitro studies, Foreseen Shield Nopal was also tested in clinical trials on 20 subjects aged between 47 and 66 years who suffered from crow's feet. 0.1% Foreseen Shield Nopal was applied twice daily for 28 days and the following results were obtained.

The total area of wrinkles was reduced by 31%, the number of wrinkles by 21% and the length of wrinkles by 26%. Study participants also reported a reduction in the appearance of age spots, with 81% reporting that their age spots appeared smaller after using the emulsion.


Overall, Foreseen Shield Nopal is a powerful and effective natural ingredient that can help protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun and other environmental factors. Its ability to reduce DNA damage, reduce inflammation and support the immune system make it an excellent choice for anyone looking to maintain a healthy, youthful complexion.
