Get your skin 'sun-ready'


Staying indoors entails many issues and we all know it too well. One we don’t necessarily think about is the lack of direct sun exposure and its consequences on the skin, and on our health in general. It's important to help the skin maintain its natural sun defense system, and get it 'sun-ready' for Spring.


Besides a deficiency of vitamin D, the lack of direct sun exposure and of stimulation of our melanin leads to a gradual deterioration of our skin's natural sun defense. The skin becomes less tolerant to direct sun exposure, and suffers more reactions such as burning quicker, more often, and with higher intensity, developing rashes, showing quicker and deeper signs or accelerated aging such as loss of elasticity, wrinkles, dark spots. It also becomes more fragile and more prone to developing melanoma.

Also, under-stimulated melanin leads to dull skin and lack of glow.


The melanin in our skin acts as a natural sun protectant as well as a repairing agent, allowing for an optimum protection during what we call incidental exposure or passive exposure to ambient sunlight (these are the times when we are out an about, non-intentionally and sporadically exposed to ambient sunlight throughout a regular day, when either going to the office or running errands. Also happens behind a window.).

Melanin needs the sun, and particularly the UV-B rays which intensity starts picking up at this time of year, to activate and maintain its protection factor and properties in general. 




Incidental Sun Smart Serum gives the delicate skin on your face the right level of protection against ambient sunlight all day, whether or not you’re already using sun protection.

Use it every morning, mixed with your daily moisturizer or make up, and let it work through the day.

Contains only naturally derived ingredients, coming from botanicals and marine ecosystem.

Incidental Sun Smart Scalp & Hair Mousse is the equivalent of the serum, specifically formulated for the scalp and hair: stimulates the sun defense of the skin on scalp, while delaying the greying of hair roots and protecting the locks.

Use it during the day, either with wet or dry hair, as often as you want.

Disappears instantly, non-greasy, works with all hair texture. 

Skinergies Technology


Our biomimetic peptide mimics the action of sunlight on skin and naturally boosts the efficacy of the melanin and its UV protection and repair properties. Without affecting the skin tone, it will maintain a natural glow.

The skin can actively mitigate the harmful effects of daily UV rays.



Because the skin cannot cope alone with repeated UV exposure, we’ve added powerful and all natural UV-A, Blue Light and IR filters, anti-oxidants, and star ingredient hyaluronic acid, for full anti-photoaging benefits.

Behind the products

FAQ: What about SPF?

All French dermatologists agree on the fact that during regular days, even more during days spent indoors, SPF has absolutely no use. They also alert on the toxicity of the SPF filters and of the consequences of these filters on our health when applied every day, starting with hormone disruptions, risks of cancer and more. 

They recommend to use sunscreen during prolonged exposure when at the beach or at the park: besides protective clothing, sunscreen has to applied in sufficient quantity and replenished every 2 hours or more to be efficient.  

FAQ: Is Skinergies a sunscreen?

Skinergies' products are not sunscreen per se. Sunscreens use filters that block the penetration of UV-B rays (not so much UV-A despite the broad spectrum claim) into the skin, over a limited duration (1-2 hours max, and only if properly applied). Sunscreen also prevents the synthesis of vitamin D. While sunscreen is recommended to use at the beach and during situations of prolonged exposure to UV-B rays, it cannot do much against every day rays, mostly composed of UV-A.

Skinergies products work the other way round: they stimulate the natural sun defense system of the skin, for the body to be able to trigger its own protection when randomly hit by ambient sunlight.

FAQ: Why would I want to stimulate my sun defense?

Because it is your only way to protect against the harmful effects of ambient sunlight, considered to be the cause of 90% of the damage on our skin. Our exposure to ambient sublight is passive and happens when we don't realize it. Having your defense system ready is your safest and most natural way to protect your skin when it needs it, without having to worry about it. Exactly like your immune system!

FAQ: Can I use the serum in addition to sunscreen?

You sure can ! If you want to use sunscreen or SPF based moisturizer/makeup every day, Incidental Sun Smart Serum will take over once your SPF fades away which usually happens within 1 hour or so after you apply it. When applied in the morning, our serum will provide continuous protection throughout the entire day, without the need to replenish.

Incidental Sun Scalp & Hair Mousse serves as your scalp's defense system, since there's no real sunscreen for the scalp and hair on the market. As a bonus, it will also help delaying the greying of hair roots.



This graph shows a significantly higher protection against both UV-A and UV-B damage (71% and 90% respectively) in situation B vs situation A. Situation A resembles a regular day, after sunscreen fades away.


When measured after 2 weeks, the capacity of Incidental Sun Smart Serum’s UV-A filter to neutralize free radicals was slightly superior to that of a sunscreen with synthetic filters, with 1% UV-A filter and 4% UV-B filter.
