Mitochondria and the DNA within is the body's power generator for all cellular energy and cell cycles. Therefore, it is imperative to protect our Mitochondria and DNA at all costs in order for our skin to save its youthful vivacity. But, let's face it, we are far too sophisticated to wear an everyday SPF 30 on the face, and that is why Tecniche® created the uniquely exquisite DNA PROTECT SPF 30. DNA PROTECT is the perfect balance between a 30 SPF sun protectant and a high-end anti-age moisturizer.
Exogenous (outside the body) Protectors guard against the enemy of the sun's radiation, but also the vast number of environmental toxins and stressors. Just because a person does not burn does not mean there is no damage. In fact, 'silent' damage can be considerable. UVA/UVB sun rays penetrate skin throughout the day, stirring up free-radicals, especially the dreaded "Hydroxyl Radical", which is the most damaging and violent of all free-radicals. DNA PROTECT contain natural Zinc Oxide, for broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, it also gently soothes red, irritated skin so effortlessly that it is used in baby balms.
Hydroxyl Radicals can only be managed by key Endogenous (inside the body) powerful antioxidants produced inside the cells, such as Glutathione. However, if the Exogenous Protection is inferior (ex: no sun protection) it is much more difficult for the Endogenous Protectors to not be overwhelmed by the Hydroxyl Radicals or other free-radicals. DNA Protect has an extraordinary Exogenous antioxidant, Ergothioneine (L). It protects the skin from oxidative and DNA damage as well as protects the mitochondrial membrane against oxidation. It also transfers fatty acids into the mitochondria to help use oxygen efficiently and to produce more energy...which gives skin vitality.
We could have stopped with Ergothioneine (L), however we added one more piece to the protection puzzle...Red Algae. This highly unique, organism lives in shallow waters where it is exposed to extreme UV radiation. It produces the most powerful UV-absorbing substances in nature, and the extract itself absorbs both UVA and UVB light.
Because of all the above, DNA PROTECT can be worn around the clock to prevent DNA damage, wrinkles, and to calm skin sensitized by rashes, burns and other skin challenges. It protects the skin with Exogenous Antioxidants as the first line of support to crucial Endogenous Antioxidants.
Day and Night use of DNA PROTECT SPF 30 will improve skin health and vibrancy, with optimal cell renewal and protection, while reducing skin discomfort and sensitivities.

The harmful effects of outdoor and indoor environments (air pollution, UVA/UVB, chemicals, etc.) are extensive. People that live in areas where there is more or less exposure to sun can affect their Circadian Rhythm of cell renewal. Effects on the skin include dryness, premature aging, skin rashes, eczema, poor/slow healing, and acne.
A certain percentage of people have reactions to various stimuli (such as natural/artificial compounds, animals, greenery, foods, cleaning agents). If they come into contact with these stimuli, they can experience a range of mild to harsh skin reactions, or "allergic sensitization". Conditions such as dermatitis and eczema can be the outcome of these reactions.
Those dealing with health challenges frequently have very sensitive skin, from both the condition itself and the medications to treat it. Whether Viral (ex: Shingles or Roseola); Gastric(ex: Celiac or Crohn’s); Motor Neuron(ex: Lou Gehrig’s or Parkinson’s); Metabolic(ex:Thyroid or Diabetes); Cancer; Auto-immune(ex: Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Scleroderma)--- all of these can cause the skin to experience one or more of the following conditions: dry, itchy, inflamed, irritated, neuropathy, hyper-pigmented, photosensitive, rashes, blisters and sores.
A skin condition that results from a sensitivity due to a likely a combination of factors, one being the over-application of topicals containing irritants, usually on a daily basis. Regular exfoliation using acids or manual means can disrupt or thin the skin barrier and allow for deeper penetration of these irritants, accelerating this process even more.
Just wanted to share with you the outcome of a client under my care, an 80 year-old man who has been using Tecniche products after experiencing some health challenges. I started him on the Gentle Pore Cleanser, Restore Serum, DNA Care Natural SPF 30, and Embryol Moisture. He had a squamous cell on his face and was being treated with a topical cream. When he started using the Restore Serum together with the Embryol Moisture, the results were amazing. It healed faster and the oncologist was impressed. My client is also going through radiation therapy for a cancer near his jugular vein, and feels these products are helping him maintain the integrity of his skin. I am happy that he is experiencing wonderful results. Keep up the great work!
Such great news, Liz! Thank you for sharing.
Living in Arizona, I won't leave the house without DNA Care Natural SPF 30 on my skin. After having skin cancer, I need special protection. This sunscreen has a cool, healing effect and is so emollient; I love how my skin feels after applying it. Thanks to Tecniche and DNA Care Natural SPF 30, I can enjoy my convertible again!
Sounds like fun, Patti! Happy cruising...can you take us along next time?
