- Polypodium leucotomos has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which may explain its ability to prevent damage caused by excessive sun exposure and its helpfulness in ameliorating certain skin conditions.
- The high percentage of antioxidant phenols in Polypodium leucotomos have been shown to protect skin from erythema by inhibiting the formation of free radicals from UV radiation (and thereby preventing oxidative damage). It has also been shown to help prevent sunburn and reduce the reddening of skin that can occur with sun exposure.
- Polypodium leucotomos has also been shown to provide significant skin protection against UV radiation (sunlight) in people with polymorphous light eruption (also called polymorphic light eruption). These individuals, who are hypersensitive to sunlight, may benefit from PL with reduced itchiness and decreased skin redness.
