moisturiser SPF50 PA++++ UVA/UVB/IR DNA PROTECT COMPLEX
SPF 50 | PA++++
Anti-Pollution | DNA-Protect complex
The CITY shield photo-protector, with broad spectrum SPF 50, is the most advanced global protection shield for the skin. Its exclusive formula DNA- Protect complex offers a state of the art defence against ageing and prevents from the harmful effects caused by the sunlight and the environmental pollution: the erythema, ageing, spots, and DNA damage.
Its lightweight texture absorbs the excess of oil and allows perspiration, leaving the skin perfectly soft and smooth, visibly youthful and luminous. Works perfectly applied before make up after the daily routine. Can also be applied alone, or during the day as needed, on top of the make up as light touches up preserving all the efficacy of its benefits.
4 Stages Of Protection
CITY Shield combines the physical and chemical sun filters, together with the power of biotechnological green ingredients from a red coral, diatomaceous sea bottom extract and natural fermented polysaccharides. All with one and only mission: to protect the skin in 4 stages:
1. Immediate effect. The erythema: Protecting the skin from the UVB radiation, it increments its resistance and reinforces its protection capacity from the sun burn.
2. Mid-term effect. Anti-oxidant and anti-ageing power: the sun related skin ageing, commonly leads to wrinkles and spots, caused by the reaction of the skin against the harmful effects of UV radiation and environmental pollution.
3. Long term effect. DNA protection and repair: Preventing the invisible damage, definitely the most important, happening at an extracellular and intracellular levels (oxidative stress, inflammation, mitochondrial and cellular toxicity caused by UVA, Infra-red and visible light radiations).
4. Chronic effect. Inflammation prevention: the multiple sun radiations and the air pollutants create skin’s micro-inflammation. This is the first cause of all the undesired aesthetic effects like spots, irregular pigmentation, sun allergies and reduced resistance to sun exposure. Keeping micro-inflammation under control is paramount.
In the morning apply CITY shield after the daily care routine, and before make-up.
During the day apply CITY shield on top of make-up as a light touch-up.
Smooth liberally over the face, avoiding the eyes area, at least 15 minutes before the sun exposure.
Repeat the application as needed.
Shake well before each use.
Protect this product from excessive heat and direct sun.
Suitable for pregnant women.
General Directions related with SPF use:
• Reapply every 2 hours
• Apply to all skin exposed to the sun.
• Children under 6 months: Ask a doctor.
• General Sun Protection Measures. Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen with broad spectrum SPF of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including:
› Limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
› Wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats and sunglasses
› Reapply at least every 2 hours.
› Use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating
WARNINGS: Cosmetic product for external use. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid direct contact with eyes.
Lithothamnion calcareum: a calcified red algae, is harvested on the coasts of Brittany from its nesting area on the sandy bay floor -30 meters below.
This small red alga of 2-3 mm thickness closely resembles its cousin Coral but it grows much more slowly. Slow growth allows L. Calcareum to absorb and concentrate seawater nutrients as carbonate salts. It also contains Magnesium & Oligoelements.
These nutrients, including over 30 trace elements are conserved due to its high absorption capacity and are the reason it holds the world record for natural calcium and magnesium content. Calcified red algae are known for their mineral content but also for their ability to filter UV/IR rays and their heat insulating and absorption properties.

Biosaccharide Gum: Obtained from a biotechnological fermentation process that uses plant-origin sorbitol and an autolyzed yeast extract, biosaccharide gum-4 is a branched deacetylate polysaccharide with a high molecular weight that forms a non-occlusive
film on the skin surface. Thanks to its matrix-forming property, it builds a global protective barrier against the 3 types of pollution that make up our daily environment, inside as well as outside:
– Atmospheric (carbon particles, particulate matter and heavy metals)
– Domestic (chemical substances contained in personal care and household cleaning
In this way, it limits the intra- and extracellular damage they generate: asphyxia by encrustation, oxidative stress, inflammation and cellular and mitochondrial toxicity, etc. This “second skin” shield, which is active, physical and immediate, is designed to
prevent the appearance or aggravation of premature aging and cutaneous disorders tied to pollution.
– Protects against UV damage
– Protects against fine particle damage
– Protects against heavy metal damage
– Protects against chemical substance damage
– Protects against intra- and extracellular damage from pollution
– Shields skin from pollution
– Prevents oxidative stress, inflammation and premature aging caused by pollution
