Incidental Sun™ Smart Serum
This product is coming soon!
- How To Use
15ml / 0.5 fl oz.
Our innovative booster serum provides your skin with what it needs when exposed to ambient sunlight, for 8 to 10 hours a day, every day, year-round. Specifically formulated for the face and other delicate areas of the body such as neck and décolleté, its proprietary technology simultaneously acts at 2 levels:
1. It naturally stimulates your skin’s own sun defense system: by mimicking the action of sunlight on the skin, it keeps your body's defense system active against UV radiation and blue light. This is called photo-adaptation, which is the ability of your own body to protect your skin against sunlight during brief and sporadic moments of exposure to natural light.
2. It actively fights the signs of photoaging, primarily coming from invisible yet dangerous UV-A rays, but also from blue light – both natural and computer generated, and Infrared. Also with potent natural anti-oxidants and star ingredient hyaluronic acid for a full anti-photoaging solution.
Gently squeeze the tube once and mix serum with moisturizer before applying on clean face or on other sensitive exposed body areas (décolleté, shoulders…). Can also be applied directly on the skin. Use once a day in the morning. Avoid contact with eyes.

Why you need it?
When a good sunscreen can play a role against sunburns if properly applied and reapplied, there is little it can do against ambient sunlight, when applied once in the morning: because sunscreen’s SPF fades away within a couple of hours, your skin is left unprotected for most of the day.
Applied once in the morning as a booster to your moisturizer, Incidental Sun Smart Serum acts as an all-day protection in situations of passive exposure to ambient sunlight.

Q. What is melanin and why does it matter?
In humans, melanin is the primary pigment that gives skin and hair its unique color, and the presence of melanin in the skin helps to protect us from UV light. Skinergies Incidental Sun System is the first-ever skincare to feature ingredients that help naturally support the melanin in your skin, and make the most of incidental sun moments.
Q. Can I wear Incidental Smart Serum in place of a sunscreen?
Incidental Sun Smart Serum isn’t a sunscreen, that works by shielding your skin from UV exposure.
Our clinically-advanced skincare Smart Serum primarily helps support the skin’s natural sun defense and repair mechanisms, while fighting the signs of photo-aging. It’s a year-round, everyday, all day booster serum formulated to allow a worry-free experience during passive exposure to UV light (aka incidental sun exposure). Unlike a sunscreen that you need to replenish, Smart Serum is photo-active and only needs to be applied once a day. But for that trip to the beach or pool, always wear the appropriate clothing and/or sunscreen to avoid sun burns (and your Smart Serum!)
Q. Is Smart Serum a self-tanner?
Nope, Smart Serum works completely differently. Self-tanners contain a color additive called dihydroxyacetone (DHA) which reacts with dead cells on the skin's surface to temporarily darken the skin and simulate a tan. The coloring typically wears off after a few days, or it can be washed off. Importantly, the color produced by self-tanners won't protect your skin from UV rays, and can even create a higher sensitivity to the sun.
Besides having strong antioxidant and moisture binding properties, Smart Serum gradually and naturally works to boost the melanin in your skin, with the purpose of restoring the skin’s natural photoadaptation properties: protection and repair against photodamage. With continued use, our products help create a natural sun-kissed glow year round.
