Your child has been diagnosed with a sun allergy called PMLE?  

PMLE or PLE (Polymorphous Light Eruption or Polymorphic Light Eruption) is the most common sun allergy, affecting 10% to 15% of North Americans. It mostly affects women from 20 to 40 years but it can also affects children and teens. Main symptoms include itchy or burning rash typically occurring within 2 to 24 hours after sun exposure. The rash usually appears on sun-exposed portions of the neck, upper chest, arms, lower legs and feet. Young boys seems to be particularly affected on ears and face. In most patients, the rash goes away after a few weeks but it can last all summer. Appearance of the rash varies greatly. Some children also experience flu like symptoms and fatigue. For sure it can ruin your  child summer holiday. The whole family suffers when I child is affected by this sun allergy.

According to research conclusions, a formulation combining alpha-glucosylrutin (also called AGR, ag-rutin, glucosylrutin) and Vitamin E use with a broad spectrum sunscreen is an effective preventive PMLE treatment. In clinical studies, 80% of people who have used this formulation in real conditions have experienced a major improvement of their PMLE and most of them had no symptoms at all.

    «We can't thank you enough!!!

    I wanted to write to let you know how grateful we are for finding your product. My 12 year old son began to suffer from PMLE a few years ago while on vacation in Florida during spring break. He was hit hard with symptoms and after day two of vacation had to spend the rest of the time covered up, on Benadryl and out of the sun. Very difficult for an active kid who loves to spend vacation in the pool and fishing on our boat. His PMLE, from that point on, occurred every time we visited Florida (twice per year). He was miserable and I scoured the internet for help. I stumbled upon a blog that mention the Shirudo product. We have now used it for my son on at least two Florida trips and his PMLE has stayed in check. The other product that we use in conjunction is sunscreen by Ocean Potion. They contain Avobenzone and are Oxybenzone free (which he reacts negatively to). We can't thank you enough!!!»  »

    Bought this as my daughter was recently diagnosed with pmle and it worked. She did not have any rash and we used it underneath Eucerin factor sun tan cream that is recommended for pmle. My other daughter normally suffers with heat rash when we are abroad and she used this cream too and it worked for her.  Highly recommend and worth every penny. So glad we bought it as both my daughters aged 16 and 14 hate going on holiday and their rashes normally ruin our holiday.»

    « You saved our vacation!!!!

    I am VERY happy with this product. I purchased it for our trip to Hawaii because we were suspecting that our daughter has PLE. She applied it everyday and she had no PLE issues. She forgot to apply it one morning and sure enough, the PLE erupted. Fortunately, her case was not too severe and resolved rather quickly. After that episode, she faithfully applied it the rest of the trip. I plan on sharing this information and product with my daughter's allergy specialist. I know he is always looking for new products to help his patients. Thank you Shirudo! You saved our vacation!!!!»

    The Science Behind

    What clinical studies have found

    Studies by Jeanmougin et Al on PMLE sufferers under real solar exposure condition (Spring and Summer) reveal global efficacy of 80%

    PMLE sufferers applied a formulation combining alpha-glucosylrutin and Vitamin E  with a broad spectrum sunscreen every 2 hours.

    After summer
    67.3% had no eruptions at all
    19.2% had minor eruptions
    13.5% had severe eruptions


    Before any sun exposure, apply a very small quantity of lotion and massage well until full absorption. Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen on top. Repeat every 2 hours, after swimming or toweling.
    Shirudo AGR+E is a cosmetic lotion, not a sunscreen. You must still apply sun protection, but the good news is that you can keep using your favorite one. PMLE affects every skin type, therefore there is no way a single sunscreen with AGR could be suitable for all. That’s why we created this glucosylrutin lotion. It is fragrance free and more than 99% natural. It is so light you do not need to apply much. The moisturizing sensation is immediate and it absorbs quickly. A 8 oz bottle will be enough for seven full days at the beach.


    Give it a try

    The horrible truth about PMLE is the ‘polymorphous’ part, because everyone experiences it differently, no treatment is effective for all. We strongly believe Alpha-glucosylrutin and Vitamin E use with a broad spectrum sunscreen is the most promising preventive treatment so far. It is simple, quick, and totally natural. Try it and send us your feedback. We want to improve the product and make it the best solution for all PMLE sufferers.




    Enjoying Sunset in Costa Rica« Hi, my name is Eloise and I have PMLE for more than 25 years. I am the founder of Shirudo Cosmetics. At first I develop this lotion for myself but decided to make it available for everyone. From all the preventive PMLE treatments I’ve tried so far, it is the only solution that has reduced 90% of my symptoms and allowed me to fully enjoy a sun vacation for the first time since I was 12 years old. I use Shirudo AGR+E for 4 years now. I can enjoy beach vacations and outdoor activities all year long. I don't have to hide from the sun anymore.

    « Freedom is the most awesome part of a PMLE-free vacation… I really hope you can benefit from this lotion too. »

    Of course I keep using a good broad spectrum sunscreen, but not as strong as the one I have used before. My health is a priority and I developed this lotion with the best natural ingredients. No more corticosteroid, no more antihistaminic, and no more tanning sessions. »

    Important: Always consult a dermatologist to assure you are suffering from PMLE and no other type of sun related conditions (photoallergic contact dermatitis, solar urticaria, phototoxicity, eczema, etc). Our lotion cannot prevent other type of sun allergies. If you already have a PMLE rash at this moment, anti-itch preparation and cold compresses may produce some temporary relief. Some people experience improvement with oral antihistamine. Aloe Vera may also help reduce the burning sensation. Try AGR+E on your next vacation.
