GSP-Plus: GSP is a powerful anti-oxidant complex that combines water-soluble procyanidins and oil-soluble tocopherols from Swiss grape seeds. Procyanidins have powerful antioxidant properties and are free radical scavengers. It has been proven that GSP increases the skin's UV tolerance. Skin cells are protected from oxidative stress and free radicals are combated. The complex prevents environmental skin damage, soothes stressed skin and reduces redness. It also has an anti-ageing effect: skin ageing is prevented by combating the glycosylation reaction.

GSP+ is used in Ultrasun products in our Face and Body ranges, in the Sports range and the Alpine range.


Ectoin Hydro Complex: Ectoin® is produced in nature by bacteria to protect themselves from extreme environmental conditions such as high or low temperatures, high salt concentrations, dehydration and UV radiation. This natural substance binds water and therefore has excellent skin care properties:

  • Cell protection: It stabilises the natural structure of biological macromolecules.
  • Anti-inflammatory: It has an anti-inflammatory and moisturising effect.
  • Membrane stabilisation: It increases the fluidity of cell membranes and protects them.
  • Hydration: As a water-binding substance, it helps to form a stable moisturising layer.

We benefit from the unique properties of Ectoin® to pamper the skin with additional care.

Ectoin® is part of the formulations in all Ultrasun products of the Classic Face range.


CyWhiteG: CyWhite is a natural extract from rainbow algae, which is harvested by hand in Brittany - in harmony with people and the ecosystem. The rainbow algae extract has highly effective whitening properties. When used regularly, CyWhite helps to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation (so-called sun spots or melasma) and prevent the formation of new pigmentation spots.

CyWhite is Ecocert / Cosmos certified and can be found in the Ultrasun Anti-Pigmentation Face Fluid SPF50+.


Celligent®: Celligent® is a multifunctional complex of active ingredients that provides comprehensive protection and care for the skin. UV radiation can damage DNA and thymines are destroyed by photodimerisation. Celligent® contains uridine monophosphates, which are a biochemical precursor of thymines. With the help of Celligent®, destroyed thymines can be repaired.
By protecting against UV damage, promoting cell repair, providing antioxidant protection and supporting the skin barrier, Celligent® helps to keep the skin healthy, radiant and youthful.

Celligent® is added to our Ultrasun Kids SPF50+ products.


Halorubin: Halorubin is a natural substance with a very high antioxidant effect. It is extracted from halobacteria that live in extreme environments such as salt lakes and are exposed to intense UV radiation. UV light causes free radicals, which damage the cells and accelerate skin ageing. Halorubin intercepts these free radicals and, in combination with other high-quality ingredients, provides perfect all-round protection for the skin.

Halorubin is used in our face and body Ultrasun products.


LIPEX PreAct™: Lipex PreAct™ is a natural moisturising ingredient derived from non-genetically modified Swedish rapeseed. Lipex PreAct™ is naturally rich in antioxidant tocopherols and phytosterols. These properties help to prepare and protect the skin against UV radiation (PRE) and actively restore impaired skin barrier function (ACT).
A healthy skin barrier keeps the skin supple and prevents possible skin irritation.

Lipex PreAct™ is part of the formulation of our Ultrasun Baby Mineral SPF50.

Potulaca Vita

Portulaca Vita: Portulaca Vita is an extract from the portulaca plant (Portulaca oleracea), a plant known for its skin-soothing properties. This active ingredient is rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids; it helps to reduce inflammation and supports the repair of damaged skin. Portulaca Vita can also help to improve moisture retention in the skin.

We use Portulaca Vita in our After Sun and Post Laser products.
