    Sunscreen Agents (Uvinul A Plus, and BEMT)
    Uvinul A Plus provides protection from the sun’s UV rays. It is a clear, odorless liquid that is highly soluble in oil. It is an organic compound that is made up of two benzene rings, a hydroxy group, and a diethylamino group. The hydroxy group is responsible for absorbing UV radiation, while the diethylamino group helps to stabilize the molecule and make it more effective in blocking UV rays. Uvinul A Plus is considered an efficient chemical sunscreen agent as it can absorb both UVA and UVB rays. UVA radiation is more prevalent in the environment and is associated with skin aging, while UVB radiation is more intense and can cause sunburn and skin cancer. Uvinul A Plus is able to absorb both UVA and UVB rays, thus providing a higher level of protection against the sun’s harmful rays. Additionally, Uvinul A Plus is often considered to be a better alternative to physical sunscreens that contain minerals such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. Physical sunscreens can be difficult to apply and often leave a white residue on the skin. Uvinul A Plus is much easier to apply and does not leave behind any residue. BEMT has been proven to be an effective UV filter and has the ability to absorb UV radiation. BEMT acts as a shield to protect the skin from sun damage. It is able to filter out both UVA and UVB radiation. By blocking out these two types of radiation, BEMT can reduce the risk of sunburns, skin cancer, and premature skin aging. BEMT has a variety of advantages compared to other chemical sunscreen agents. It is water-resistant, making it an ideal choice for those who are active outdoors or spend time in the pool. BEMT is also non-irritating, making it a great choice for sensitive skin. Additionally, it is non-comedogenic, meaning it is unlikely to clog pores or cause breakouts.
    Ultraviolet Light Absorbing Agent (Ethylhexyl Triazone)
    Chemical sunscreens are widely used to protect the skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. A key component of chemical sunscreens is an ultraviolet light absorbing agent, such as Ethylhexyl Triazone, which is capable of absorbing UV radiation and converting it into harmless thermal energy. Ethylhexyl Triazone is a synthetic, organic compound that absorbs UV radiation in the UVA/UVB spectrum. It is approved as a UV filter in the European Union and has been used in sunscreens for over 20 years. When applied to the skin, Ethylhexyl Triazone absorbs UV radiation and prevents it from penetrating the skin. It is known to be highly effective at blocking both UVA and UVB radiation. In addition, it is photostable, meaning it does not break down when exposed to sunlight. This makes it an ideal ingredient for chemical sunscreens as it remains effective even after prolonged exposure to sunlight. Ethylhexyl Triazone is an effective UV filter due to its high absorption capacity and its ability to absorb UV radiation over a wide range of wavelengths. It is also considered to be safe for use in sunscreens, as it has been extensively tested and determined to be non-toxic. In addition, it does not penetrate the skin and is not absorbed into the bloodstream.
    Propanediol is a natural, sustainable, and biodegradable alternative to other petroleum-derived ingredients. It is produced from fermented corn, a renewable environmentally friendly source of ingredient. Propanediol is highly moisturizing, helping to keep the skin hydrated and improve its overall appearance. It also helps to reduce water loss from the skin, which helps to keep it healthy and balanced. It also has a high spreadability, which helps products to be applied evenly and easily to the skin.

    This nutrient dense fruit is packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other essential components that make it an ideal choice for a variety of skincare products. The antioxidants found in melon are known to help protect skin from the damaging effects of free radicals, which can lead to premature aging and other skin issues. In addition, melon is a natural source of Vitamin A, which is essential for healthy skin. Vitamin A helps to promote cell regeneration and can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Melon is also rich in Vitamin C, an essential nutrient for healthy skin.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is SPF?

    A simplified way of understanding the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is to think of it as a measure of the level of protection a product provides against sunburn. To calculate it, a volunteer is exposed to UV rays to determine how long it takes for them to burn with and without protection. This ratio is then used to determine the SPF. For example, if a person would burn in ten minutes without protection and three hours and twenty minutes with protection, the ratio would be 200 minutes/10 minutes, giving an SPF of 20. This means that a person using an SPF 20 cream has twenty times more time to be exposed to the sun before getting burned than without protection.

    What are the differences between UVA and UVB?

    UVA and UVB both belong to the ultraviolet family, yet they have a number of distinct dissimilarities. UVB is responsible for stimulating tanning and sunburn, and it can't penetrate the skin too deeply. On the other hand, UVA rays can go further beneath the surface, leading to early aging of the skin. Both UVA and UVB can be the cause of skin cancer, making it essential to defend your skin from both types of UV. Sun protection items must protect against both UVA and UVB.

    What is chemical sunscreen?

    Chemical sunscreen is a type of sunscreen that is made with chemical ultraviolet (UV) filters. These UV filters absorb and scatter the UV radiation from the sun, thereby protecting the skin from the sun's harmful rays. Chemical sunscreens typically contain ingredients such as oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate, homosalate, octisalate, and octocrylene. Chemical sunscreens work by absorbing the UV radiation and then releasing it as heat. This helps to protect the skin from the sun's damaging rays. Chemical sunscreens are typically more effective than physical sunscreens, as they can provide more even coverage and are less likely to be rubbed off or washed away.

    Is chemical sunscreen a better sunscreen than a physical one?

    Chemical sunscreens and physical sunscreens are both effective ways to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Chemical sunscreens work by absorbing the sun’s rays, while physical sunscreens work by reflecting the sun’s rays away from the skin. Both types of sunscreens are effective, but there are some key differences that may make one type better for certain individuals or situations. When it comes to effectiveness, chemical sunscreens tend to be the more reliable option. Chemical sunscreens work after being absorbed onto skin, and they are more effective at blocking UVA and UVB rays than physical sunscreens. Additionally, chemical sunscreens are generally more water-resistant than physical ones, so they are a better choice for swimmers or anyone who will be exposed to water. Physical sunscreens, on the other hand, are often considered to be more natural. They are made with ingredients such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are mineral-based and considered to be nontoxic to the skin. They also tend to be more gentle and less likely to irritate the skin than chemical sunscreens. Physical sunscreens are also the better choice for anyone with sensitive skin, as they are less likely to cause a reaction. Ultimately, the choice between chemical and physical sunscreens depends on the individual and their needs. Chemical sunscreens are generally more effective and water-resistant, making them a better choice for activities such as swimming or for individuals who are exposed to water for long periods of time. Physical sunscreens are more natural and less likely to irritate the skin, making them a better choice for those with sensitive skin.
