McNabb Nutraceuticals, LLC. Introduces Sunology Natural Sun Protection Products at 2012 Natural Products Expo West
A Sunscreen for Skin that Prefers No Chemicals
Chicago, IL – (March 9, 2012) – McNabb Nutraceuticals, LLC., exhibiting for the first time at the 2012 Natural Products Expo West this week at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, introduces an array of natural sun protection products: Sunology® Natural Sun Protection, a sunscreen line containing only FDA-approved active ingredients derived from natural sources. The new Sunology® product line carries sunscreen lotions and crèmes for the face and body, a formula specifically created for children’s sensitive skin and a sunscreen sport stick for on-the-go protection.
Ninety percent of the sunscreen products marketed today are classified as “chemical” sunscreens. Sunology® is a “physical” – not a chemical – sunscreen. The difference is substantial. As a physical sunscreen, Sunology® uses only FDA- approved active ingredients derived from natural sources, as opposed to man-made or chemical sources. Sunology® products help prevent the development of free radicals, which may result from the absorption of man-made active sunscreen chemicals into the skin. Free radicals may put individuals at risk for accelerated skin aging and developing various forms of other skin disorders. Sunology® is free of man-made active sunscreen ingredients; it is a natural alternative that preserves, protects and rejuvenates the skin’s sensitivity to the harmful effects of the sun.
“The realities of chemically based sunscreens are undeniable,” states Richard Doermer, Founder of McNabb Nutraceuticals and the Sunology® Natural Sun Protection Products. “I used a variety of popular sunblocks daily for over 25 years, and still developed basil-cell carcinoma in 2008. That was a harsh realization for me, when it became clear that major sunscreens – at the time, one of my only perceived lines of defense against the damage of UV rays – may have actually been harming and not protecting me.
“We’ve focused our health concerns on the chemicals we ingest from the food we eat, or in the air we breathe; we never think about what internal, lasting damage we could be causing our bodies from what we lather on our skin,” continued Doermer. “Our Sunology® products raise awareness about the true nature of popular sunscreens, and offer consumers a physical sunscreen derived from nature that is safe and effective and an alternative that provides protection without the potential of dangerous side effects.”
Each ingredient contained in the Sunology® products has a distinct function that blends the natural elements of these ingredients to not only protect the skin from the harmful effects of the sun, but also to nurture and rejuvenate it.
Victor Palinczar, Ph.D., McNabb’s Chief Scientist states, “The key to the Sunology® line of sunscreen products is its unique, patent-pending composition and the combination of the ingredients contained within. It is a marriage of active ingredients derived from nature, that were specifically designed to be safe and highly effective, blended with an all-natural Vita Oléfera Complex, a natural FSG Complex and natural moisturizers and emollients. No other sunscreen product made or marketed today, worldwide, has this unique blend of ingredients.
“More importantly,” continues Palinczar, “the products provide the consumer with the highest allowable SPF of 50, as established by the FDA. Sunology®’s active ingredients are physical sunscreens and not the normal chemical sunscreens, as are over 90% of the sunscreen products marketed today. Many of the chemical sunscreens have the potential to form free radicals.
“Not only do the Sunology® products protect against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, they also help in preventing free radical formation, which may in turn contribute to the degradation of DNA and skin collagen; thus, the rate of wrinkling and premature aging of the skin may increase. The development of the Sunology® line of sunscreen products is my most rewarding contribution in helping prevent skin cancer and other skin disorders attributed by the harmful effects of the sun in my 30 years of skin care research,” states Palinczar.
Free of Man-Made Active Sunscreen Chemical Ingredients
Sunology® Natural Sun Protection Products contain no oxybenzone or avobenzone, and are PABA free. The products contain no chemical preservatives, are invisible upon application, non-oily and concentrated.
All Sunology® products are free of the following man-made active sunscreen chemical Ingredients:
- Menthyl Anthranilate
- Octinoxate (also known as Octyl Methoxycinnamate)
- Octisalate (also known as Octyl Salicylate)
- Padimate O
- Para Amino Benzoic Acid (known as PABA)
- Trolamine Salicylate
Vita Oléfera™ Complex
Vita Oléfera™ is a natural ingredient comprised of a Moringa Oil complex. It is one of the most luxurious, sought-after oils to nourish and rejuvenate the skin and is harvested from the Moringa Oléfera Tree, or “Miracle Tree,” commonly found in the Himalayas. As a Moringa Oil complex, Vita Oléfera™ is one of the most nutrient-rich oils in the world, abundant in antioxidants and Omega 6 and Omega 9 oils, making it one of the most desired treatments over the centuries for the prevention of wrinkles and other skin disorders.
Vita Oléfera™ also contains naturally occurring vitamin A in the form Beta-carotene to improve skin’s texture. Unlike vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate used in many popular skincare products, Beta-carotene is processed by the body, which naturally converts the nutrient to vitamin A as needed. Thus, any concerns of the use of vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate are eliminated.
Ferulic Acid/Soy (FSG) Complex™
Sunology® products include the patented FSG Complex™, to nourish and change the look and feel of skin beyond sunscreen protection. Derived from natural occurring Ferulic acid – a recognized antioxidant – and skin nourishing soybean oil, this complex has been proven in recent clinical research studies to decrease wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and dryness. Regular use of Sunology® products combined with the distinct FSG Complex™ will not only shield the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, but will, with each use, produce softer, smoother and younger-looking skin. Sunology® products are the world’s only sunscreens that make use of the patented FSG Complex™.
UV MicroReflexion™ Technology
Sunology®’s formulas are made using exclusive UV MicroReflexion™ Technology, which reflects the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays without being absorbed by the skin. Sunology®’s UV MicroReflexion™ Technology provides over 10,000 “micro mirrors” within a quarter-sized area to effectively reflect and scatter the sun’s damaging UV rays and protect the skin without being absorbed. These micro mirrors remain on the surface of the skin, allowing Sunology products to be extremely effective in reflecting UVA and UVB rays. It is the only sunscreen to make use of UV MicroReflexion™ Technology.
Benefits of High Concentration
Unlike 99% of sunscreen products currently on the market, all Sunology®’s formulas are water-free. They contain 75% emollients and moisturizers to produce the ultimate, beneficial potential in nurturing, revitalizing and protecting the skin. Dried and flaking skin is decreased considerably, and Sunology® sunscreen products spread invisibly, while guaranteeing long-lasting protection.
“I initially used Sunology while racing sailboats,” states John Poast, Sr. Vice President, Residential Lending for Key Mortgage Services, Chicago, IL, and an avid competitive sailboat racer for over 20 years. “What I have come to love about Sunology is that, when I put it on my face, it does not hurt my eyes like every other sunscreen. All sunscreens I have used previously always drip into my eyes when I am active; Sunology does not. I have never peeled after using Sunology, and, in fact, when applied, it feels like silk.
“I last brought Sunology with me on a recent trip to the Austrian Alps for a little bit of downhill,” continues Poast. “Not only did Sunology protect me from the intense reflections off the mountain snow, but it was then that I realized Sunology also protects my face from the wind – whether it is from sailing along at 12 knots, or racing down the mountain. I have been so impressed with the product that I have recommended it to all my friends.”
