Sustainable evolution in Napura sunscreens
Our commitment to sustainable evolution continues: the Napura Sunsystem 2023 sunscreen season sees several very important innovations to reduce our impact on the environment. Discover them with us.
DISCOVER THE FILTERS
LET'S START HERE
The effect of sunscreens on corals
Sunscreens are cosmetic formulations containing a % of molecules that absorb ultraviolet rays, particularly UVA and UVB.
When, after slathering the right amount of cream on our face and body, we dive for a swim in the sea, the cream starts to melt and all the raw materials it was made from spill into the water.
It has been shown, an element of particular ecological significance, that the sun filters in the products go on to damage the corals in the sea, causing them to bleach.
The New Coral Friendly Filters
This damage to the marine habitat has brought attention to some of the sun filters used to make creams.
Without radical action, it is estimated that 50 percent of the world's coral reefs could disappear within 20 years.
By Coral Friendly filters therefore we define a series of new filters that protect and preserve marine corals.
In the Sunsystem Napura line all body sunscreens have Coral Friendly filters.
UVA and UVB filters
By now we understand how important it is to defend against UVA and UVB rays to prevent the appearance of wrinkles, spots and skin aging.
But then how is it that the appearance of melasma and hyperpigmentation post exposure protected by UVA and UVB filters was noted in one study?
The studies then focused on studying damage from visible light, which accounts for 40 percent of the sun's energy.
INFORMED AND PROTECTED
What is blue light?
Blue light, or rather blue-violet light, is the one closest in wavelength to UVA rays, which is why it has aroused curiosity.
Blue light causes a different kind of hyperpigmentation from UVB rays; it is in fact long-lasting (only in those with phototype 3 or higher, however).
It is therefore now well established that blue light emitted by the sun also causes damage to cell and tissue structure as well as UVA and UVB, and it is therefore important to protect against this as well with the right sunscreens.
Many Sunsystem sunscreens also have protective effects toward Blue Light.
The vegan formulas in Sunsystem sunscreens.
Environmental sustainability is the main ingredient in vegan cosmetics.
Today being conscious is above all a duty, and choosing "clean" products, that is, with clean Inci is the way to support the cause through beauty.
In vegan products, the raw materials within the products are naturally or synthetically derived, not derived from animals or animal-derived products (eggs, milk, or the oils, extracts, glycerin, keratin and gelatin of animal origin).
Ingredients not allowed include honey and beeswax, silk protein, and lanolin,
a protective film of animal origin that serves to give softness.
All Sunsystem Napura sunscreens are vegan.
The anti-photoaging effect on the skin
By the term photoaging refers to all those changes, affecting the skin and its structures, induced by the sun and UV radiation. When the skin is excessively exposed to UV rays, it can suffer harmful effects, the intensity of which changes in relation to the dose of UV received and the sensitivity of the subject. The damaging effects can be acute (or immediate) or chronic.
The immediate effect of sunlight exposure is sunburn and erythema, an inflammatory reaction characterized by vasodilation and increased skin permeability.
