E. Drakaki, C. Dessinioti, C. V. Antoniou, Photobiology Unit, First Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, Andreas Sygros Hospital, University of Athens, Greece
The increase of air pollution over the years has major effects on the human skin. Exposure of the skin to air pollutants has been associated with skin aging and inflammatory or allergic skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis or acne, while skin cancer is among the most serious effects. On the other hand, some air pollutants (i.e., O3, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide) and scattering particulates (clouds and soot) in the troposphere reduce the effects of shorter wavelength UVR and significant reductions in UV irradiance have been observed in polluted urban areas.
Protection against IR and HEV induced damage
V.А. Averianova, Ph.D (biology)
The protection trend is global, growing and here to stay. Although protection will always include UV, it now encompasses HEV, IR/Heat, EMR and pollution. Defense against solar radiation is vital to human health. But today it is clear, that current sun care products that filter both UVA and UVB rays are insufficient since they do not block all the damaging rays from the sun. Long considered to be harmless, infrared rays(IR) have now been identified as a major contributor to photo-damage. The same can be told about visible blue light (HEV). So, reliable protection of the skin in the future should include ingredients, effectively blocking negative effects of IR and HEV too.
Sunscreen Formulation Principles and Theory
B. Carli, Director, Institute of Personal Care Science (IPCS), Australia
Sunscreens play a vital role in fighting aging caused due to sun. The consumption of sunscreens has seen a rise since consumers have started understanding the significance of these products. Formulating a sunscreen product may not be as easy as you might think. There are a lot of aspects taken into consideration. Amongst them the most important thing to remember is that the stability of the formulation and UV results are not always predictable.
Anti-pollution: the chois of ingredients and approaches to confirm declared properties
Pollution is considered particularly problematic in Asia, as air pollution has hit critical levels in many major cities. In addition to contributing to premature death, ground level ozone pollution, particulate matter, traffic fumes, UV rays and smog are skin aggressors that accelerate ageing, wrinkles and dull complexions. As consumers increasingly demand brands and products that prioritize the use of anti-pollution ingredients, this presents a vast opportunity to beauty and personal care companies in Asia, which are focusing on R&D to evolve and innovate.
