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.

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.»

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!!!!»

« 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.
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.
