We all love being in the sun but how do we protect ourselves from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV (ultraviolet) radiation? Both UVA and UVB rays are responsible for the photo-ageing effects of the sun, skin thickening and inflammation while the more intense UVB rays that are much stronger in the summer cause sunburn, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and wrinkles as well as breakdown of collagen in the matrix of the skin, which is a sign of skin ageing. UVB also causes direct DNA damage, a trigger for common types of skin cancer.
ciRos is a totally new concept in anti-ageing and sun protection that works from ‘the inside out’. ciRos contains NutroxSun®, a unique blend of grapefruit and rosemary extracts, that acts by strengthening the skin’s response to the sun providing protection from photo-ageing, sunburn, increased pigmentation, sunspots, wrinkles and DNA damage caused by UV radiation.
ciRos also contains Ascorbic Acid, Grape Seed extract, L-Glutathione and Nicotinamide which are antioxidants and provide additional skin anti-ageing protection.
Key Benefits Clinical studies have shown that following exposure to the sun NutroxSun®, the active compound in ciRos can protect your skin from sunburn, improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkle depth and provides a defence against sun damage at a cellular level.
What does this mean for you? After being out in the sun your skin has less redness, feels smoother and more elastic, wrinkles are less defined and your skin is being protected at a deeper level from UV induced photo-ageing, even on cloudy days. After 12 weeks, NutroxSun® exhibited an even stronger skin-protective effect.
While most sunscreens work by blocking the sun, ciRos protects from the inside so your skin can continue to make Vitamin D while being protected from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays. Vitamin D is essential for a healthy immune system, strong bones and teeth and has a protective effect against multiple disease including certain types of cancer.

Q: How do I use ciRos to protect my skin? A: ciRos is supplied in a pack of 30 gelatin capsules to be taken orally with water. Taken daily, ciRos can provide protection your skin from sunburn and the reduce the signs of ageing.
Q: What are the active ingredients in ciRos? A: The magic in ciRos comes from NutroxSunTM, a unique blend of citrus fruit (grapefruit) and the Mediterranean culinary herb, rosemary. While rosemary and grapefruit extracts both exhibited skin photo protective properties, when used together during clinical trials in Europe, the protective properties were significantly amplified – this is known as a ‘synergistic’ effect. ciRos also contains four different antioxidants carefully selected to protect the skin from oxidative damage – ascorbic acid, grapeseed extract, L-Glutathione, and Nicotinamide.
Q: What are antioxidants? A: These are naturally occurring plant nutrients that are found in brightly coloured fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants help protect the body from oxidative stress by neutralising free radicals, and help the body process toxins encountered in our diet and environment.
Q: What is L-Glutathione? A: Glutathione (GSH) is another powerful antioxidant that protects the cells of the body from toxins such as pollution, radiation and free radicals that contribute to premature ageing. GSH is concentrated in the liver where it binds heavy metals such as mercury and arsenic so these can be safely excreted from the body. Glutathione levels also deplete with ageing. What is L-Glutathione?
Q: What is Nicotinamide? A: Nicotinamide is an activated form of vitamin B3. This antioxidant vitamin can help reduce the skin’s sensitivity to the sun and prevent damage from UVA and UVB rays. UVB in particular suppresses the immune system making it less able to identify.
