I wanted to create a 100 percent natural formula that would effectively reflect UV rays and provide strong anti-oxidant protection to assists the body's natural defenses against free radical skin damage caused by UV rays.

After winning a bout with Basal Cell Carcinoma, Peter Zahner, a Swiss born Mechanical Engineer now living in Bonita Springs, Florida, spent a year in his makeshift laboratory inventing and perfecting a new generation of bio-degradable sunscreen made with 100 percent natural ingredients.
"I thought about it for years," said Zahner, who focused on a series of studies which found a correlation between areas of fast increasing skin cancer rates and promotion of traditional sunscreens. "I wanted to create a 100 percent natural formula that would effectively reflect UV rays and provide strong anti-oxidant protection to assists the body's natural defenses against free radical skin damage caused by UV rays." Free radicals are responsible for causing wrinkles, sagging skin and the development of skin cancer.
According to the latest studies about sunscreen, Zahner is on the right tract. These studies reveal that chemical UV-filters and other sythetic ingredients used in traditional sunscreens actually cause skin damage and contribute to the development of skin cancer. "The skin is the largest organ you have," says Zahner. "What you put on your skin is absorbed directly into your body. I just knew there had to be a way to provide sun protection through a formula that was 100 percent natural- even though I was told that it would be impossible."
There were two significant breakthroughs that led to the creation of MelanSol® 100 percent natural sunscreen--the stabilization of the natural ingredients and the successful integration of the super anti-oxidant Bio Melanin. Bio-Melanin, the most significant ingredient, comes from the fruit of the Date Palm. It is a potent anti-oxidant with a capacity1000 times greater than vitamin E for capturing and terminating free radicals. When Zahner combined Bio-Melanin with Green Tea and the natural form of vitamin E, he knew he had created the superior 100 percent natural anti-oxidant skin protection he had envisioned and something that was more than just a sunscreen. "Men tell me MelanSol® makes a great aftershave lotion and women are using it as a protective/moisturizing base before make-up", says Zahner.
Zahner designed MelanSol® sunscreen for three types of skin- A Dark Tanning Lotion for skin that rarely burns, an SPF-8 for skin that minimally burns and easily tans, and an SPF-18 for skin that burns and minimally tans. When asked why his highest Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is 18, Zahner replied, "My MelanSol® Sunscreen SPF-18, using 100 percent natural mineral pigments, already reflects 95 percent of the sun's UVB rays. An SPF-30 will only result in 2 percent more protection, however, a two fold amount of chemical UV filters is required to achieve it."
"Parents have been raving about the natural skin protection their children are getting with the SPF-18," says Zahner. MelanSol® sunscreen is Hypo-Allergenic, FDA compliant and Dermatologist tested and approved.
