As much as sunshine makes us feel good, sunlight is full of hidden dangers and challenges. There is no going around it, sun protection is a must and is even significantly beneficial when there is no sunshine but a cloudy sky. We all know that the radiation from the sun stresses and inflames the skin and accelerates the skin’s aging processes. 80% of all visible signs of aging are said to originate from UV radiation. Sunlight does much more than that, though. It greatly impacts overall skin health, a major consumer concern. Consumers associate healthy skin with softness, smoothness and attractiveness where their skin is robust, radiant and well-moisturized with an even tone and not sensitive. Sunlight has a negative impact on all these features.
Protective strategies are a must, but can the skin be supported in protecting itself more efficiently? Can a cosmetic formulation help with vitamin D? And can it have a balancing effect on the skin in such a way that not only the skin stays healthy, but overall well-being can even be improved?
Our skin is the outer frontier of our body, it protects our body against outside influences and makes sure that all the good stuff stays in. In order to be successful, the skin is tremendously dynamic and intelligent. Apart from its physical barrier properties it is an immunological barrier. The decline in the skin’s immunological properties lies at the heart of all the skin problems related with sunlight. The loss of the immunological capacity to repair sunlight-induced damage is the main issue behind photoaging. This also goes for the skin’s ability to restore its physical barrier function after exposure to sunlight. Skin which is immunologically strong will be less inflamed after radiation from the sun. Vitamin D plays an important role in the skin’s immune capacity.
ACTIVE INGREDIENTS PROVIDE SUPPORT IN DIFFERENT WAYS
AnnonaSense CLR™ is a CBD-like ingredient which potentiates the skin’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is essential for obtaining and maintaining a healthy homeostasis in the skin. Skin which is in a homeostatic balance, is healthy and looks and feels good.
MultiMoist CLR™ instantly moisturizes the skin and acts as a ‘vitamin D-like’ ingredient. It promotes the skin cells’ capacity to maximize their ability to make use of vitamin D. The use of MultiMoist CLR™ leads to instant moisturizing effects and long-term protective effects through vitamin D.
ProRenew Complex CLR™ is a probiotic-derived lysate obtained from Lactococcus lactis. It improves and accelerates epidermal renewal which includes the production of molecules which act as natural endogenous UV filters for the skin. ProRenew Complex CLR™ helps the skin to protect itself.
