CellQuest has developed a dual purpose product primarily to defend against sunburn before it happens and soothe and assist healing after it happens.
Sunburns are the reaction of the body to the direct damage of cellular DNA resulting from the excitation of DNA by UV-B light photons.

Melanin also reduces the generation of free radicals in minimizing the impact to both direct (nuclear) and indirect (mitochondrial) DNA. Read More
