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, 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 body, it keeps your skin “sun-ready” and allows for an optimum, “on demand” protection against the damaging effects of UV-B, while allowing vitamin D synthesis. This is called photo-adaptation, which is the ability of your own body to manage sunlight for brief and sporadic moments during the day.
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
Today, with our increasingly indoor lifestyle, 80% of our exposure to sunlight is sporadic and passive: it is happening on regular days when running errands, on our commute to work, when trying to get a taxi on the street and even when sitting behind a window. 90% of the damage to our skin comes from these moments of exposure to ambient sunlight, year-round: from accelerated aging (wrinkles, skin sagging, dark spots…) to skin cancer and worse, melanoma.
Currently available sun care solutions (SPF) provide an inadequate solution to the situation: they cannot accommodate the incidental aspect of our exposure throughout the day without replenishment, and, more importantly, their efficiency is not proven with regards to protecting the skin against the effects of UV-A radiations, that are much more harmful than UV-B; equally intense year round, they are the #1 cause of premature aging, and of melanoma, affecting absolutely everybody and all skin tones.
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.
