With high performance Hyaluronic Acid | Protects against HEV light & UVA + UVB | Suitable for all skin types
Solal’s SPF 30 is a broad-spectrum (UVA + UVB) sun protection facial cream suitable for all skin types. It is silky to the touch and leaves a matt appearance, the ideal base-layer for make-up application.
While the public is educated regarding the dangers of sunlight, findings in recent years indicate that we have yet to explore the full spectrum of benefits and adverse effects related to sun exposure.
One of the latest striking scientific discoveries is that skin damaged by high energy visible (HEV) blue/violet light (400-500nm), may be as harmful as the damage caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) created from UVA + UVB combined. Studies conducted to evaluate the effect of HEV light on skin demonstrate damage to the dermal and epidermal layers. Damage is associated with the generation of free radicals and induction of oxidative stress, which could indirectly cause DNA damage and gene activation of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMPs) enzymes known to degrade the dermal fibre network resulting in premature photo-aging, uneven pigmentation and photosensitivity disorders. As DNA absorbs UVB rays it causes damage, while UVA, like HEV light, seems to be another “silent long-term aging wavelength”.
Summary on harmful effects of HEV light:
Weakens skin’s barrier function Elevation of senescent cells Uneven pigmentation Harmful to essential proteins that may lead to depressed immunity and inflammation Destruction of dermal fibre network, which over time is expressed as wrinkles and sagging
In light of these findings SOLAL skin is at the forefront with their new sun protection product to protect skin from these detrimental rays.
Apply daily in the morning. Use at least 2 pumps and massage evenly into the skin on the face and neck before make-up application.
Apply generously before going into the sun. Repeat application every two hours and/or reapply after swimming or exercise.
Avoid getting product into the eyes.
Melanin a scientifically advanced compound that protects against UVA + UVB and High Energy Visible (HEV) light emitted from computers, cellphones and tablets. It also helps protect against oxidative stress and impairment of the skin’s natural barrier.
Hyaluronic Acid significantly hydrates and plumps the skin leaving it supple and healthy-looking. It also assists in the anti-oxidation process by reducing damaging free radicals caused by pollution or radiation.
