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 in for a dip in the sea, the cream starts to melt and all the raw materials from which it was made spill into the water.

It has been shown that the sun filters in the products can cause bleaching of marine corals.

CORAL FRIENDS

Coral Friendly Filters

This effect on the marine habitat has brought attention to some sun filters used in the production of creams.

Without radical intervention, 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 set of filters that protect and preserve marine corals.

In the SunSystem Napura line, all body sunscreens have Coral Friendly filters.

SCIENCE PILLS.

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 possible that in one study we noticed the appearance of melasma and hyperpigmentation post-exposure protected by UVA and UVB filters?

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, or rather blue-violet, light is closest in wavelength to UVA, which is why it has aroused curiosity. It causes a different type of hyperpigmentation from UVB rays; it is in fact long-lasting (only in those with phototype 3 or higher, however).

It is therefore 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 it 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.
