People are exposed to the sun’s rays all year round. Human skin remembers every exposure to the sun. When we stay in the sun for a long time, we often do not protect our skin properly. Depending on the photo-type of skin and the type of pigment (some people have more pigment some people have less pigment) some people even 5 minutes of exposing the skin to the sun without a coat can cause damage. These damages do not have to be immediately visible. That is why it is important to protect the skin of the face and body from UVA / UVB radiation and premature aging caused by the sun’s rays. Preparations for protecting the skin from UVA / UVB and IR rays that are suitable for even the most sensitive skin should be hypoallergenic, paraben-free, with the natural substance ectoine. Ectoine protects the skin from photoaging and free radicals. Preparations with appropriate UVA / UVB protection should contain chemical and physical blockers and additional active substances that hydrate the skin of the face and body and prevent irritation.
Ectoine is a completely natural substance that can additionally be found in sunscreens. Ectoine provides the safest exposure to UVA / UVB rays throughout the year. Ectoine is a natural substance isolated from one type of microorganism, the so-called extremophile. Extremophile survives under adverse conditions of UV radiation, temperature and salinity. By synthesizing ectoine, extremophiles stabilize their cells in such conditions. Ectoine provides a long-lasting hydrating effect, prevents photoaging while protecting the skin’s immune system. In addition to UV blockers in the preparation, the addition of the active ingredient ectoine prevents burning, redness, and dehydration of the skin. In particular, the manifestation of skin hypersensitivity to the sun’s rays is prevented when polymorphic light eruption (PLE) can occur – a rash that occurs after exposing the skin to the sun. The rash can occur in multiple forms (small red bumps, larger red areas, and blisters). Weakening of immunity is one of the negative effects of UVA / UVB radiation. Ectoine in sunscreens protects children’s skin and suppresses itching due to sensitivity to the sun. That is why it is important that the sunscreen product is specially formulated to suit the most sensitive skin type and condition and the whole family.
