Managing sun exposure is a serious business, with increasing awareness Sunscreens have ceased to be just a cosmetic, today it is a well established fact that your sunscreen must be tested and certified for all the label claims.
Sunprotek 50+ Gel is the next step towards offering you a truly world class formulation at affordable price.
In fact Sunprotek 50+ Gel is a composition of carefully chosen ingredients that have their unique individual role in making Sunprotek 50+ Gel a truly protecting, nurturing and nourishing sunscreen.
Sunprotek 50+ Gel is the next generation sunscreen that comes with the unique W/O/W encapsulation (nano) technology that
Helps in forming a very consistent formulation with very even spreadability that offers uniform protection , which is not so with other sunscreens.
Reduction of absorption of sunscreen chemicals in the skin???
There is a growing concern that the sunscreen agents applied to the skin must stay on the skin only & not get absorbed into the circulation where they are not required.
The following data obtained from an in vitro experiment demonstrates that W/O/W encapsulation reduces the absorption of sunscreen chemicals into the skin.
Whereby 3 samples
? Sample A: Cream Base only ? Sample B : OMC 5% cream ? Sample C : Sunprotek Gel with W/O/W encapsulation
were applied to artificial skin and samples of the artificial body fluid were measured for UV absorbance. Sample with the least absorbance of UV rays in body fluid would be the most appropriate formulation.
Sunprotek 50+ Gel contains the following
OMC: Octyl methoxycinnamate or octinoxate, a non PABA sunscreen agent, used in suncreens to absorb UV-B rays from the sun, protecting the skin from damage. It is also used to reduce the appearance of scars. Octyl methoxycinnamate and other sun screening agents do not penetrate the outer skin in sufficient concentration to cause any significant toxicity to the underlying human keratinocytes.
Benzophenone-3, or Oxybenzone, primarily functions as a photostabilizer and sunscreen. Benzophenone-3 is classified as a "chemical" sunscreen agent. Benzophenone-3 absorbs UVB and short UVA rays. By absorbing UV rays, it also helps preserve the integrity of other cosmetic ingredients, preventing their deterioration under the sun.
Avobenzone : is the only chemical that absorbs the whole UVA spectrum from 310-400 nm. This makes it an ideal additive to any sunscreen formulation.
PEG12 Dimethicone: Acts as a humectant & emollient imparts a soft and silky feel to the skin. It also has Antiperspirant/Deodorant Properties.
Allantoin : keeps the skin soft, smooth, and healthy. Allantoin also helps protect the skin against various irritants
Vitamin E : has positive effects against skin ageing due to ultraviolet light, and protects cells by reducing itchiness and free-radical damage.
Chamomile Extract : Chamomile has antioxidant, antimicrobial activities, and a potent anti-inflammatory action
Aloe Vera Extract : Humidifies, smooths and reaffirms the skin, eliminates the ageing spots, and also acts as astringent, solar filter.
Phospholipids: Addition of phospholipid base enhances the nurturing and nourishing qualities of Sunprotek 30+/50+ Gel as, the phospholipids are natural components of cell walls and when supplied from outside they are readily accepted by the body.
Phospholipids have a:
Repairing action: Because of stronger attraction to the stratum corneum, it helps in faster restoration of the lipidic barrier of damaged skin.
Protective action: Phospholipids form a film which protects the surface of the skin from damage responsible for irritation.
Anti-dehydrating action : High capacity for binding water: 1 phospholipid molecule binds with 23 water molecules so it helps in enhanced retention of water in the surface and deep layers of the skin and adds to the suppleness of the skin.
Summarily the phospholipids provide the following benefits to the sun damaged skin
? Restructuring ? Film forming ? Hydrating ? Calming
Acrylates C10-30 Alkyl Acrylates Cross polymer: Have a high capacity to absorb water & thus help maintain a moisturized skin. It also imparts a very soft and silky feel to the skin.
