Blue Light Protection

You may have heard the words BLUE LIGHT a lot recently. What is blue light? As the amount of time we spend on electronic devices increase’s so does the damage caused by blue light (also referred to as High Energy Visible or HEV light) on our Skin. according to Dr. Kenneth Mark, a cosmetic dermatologist the screens that are emitting the blue light are exceptionally close to your face, so high-frequency blue light which can penetrate deeper into the skin than UV-A or UV-B light can cause skin to age prematurely.

As a result of prolonged blue-light exposure, you’ll see more fine lines and wrinkles that are associated with premature skin aging. Dermatologist Dr. Mona Gohara also says that blue light “increases melanin production in a process called melanogenesis,” which means that “the skin can become discoloured.”

To protect against damage from HEV it is vital for any SPF to have an added mineral makeup of Zinc Oxide and Iron oxide along with antioxidants such as green tea extract. Our SPF45 moisturiser is formulated with both Zinc and Iron oxide along with powerful antioxidants to help protect against the suns UVA UVB and blue light from too much screen time.
