Protect your skin from the 360° solar spectrum with Full Light Technology
By Shail Fernandes
Sunlight is made up of a spectrum of rays—visible light, infrared rays and ultraviolet rays. Out of 100% of the sun’s spectrum, UV rays only account for 5%. On the other hand, infrared and visible light make up for 45% and 50% of the total spectrum respectively. UV rays cause tanning and contribute to signs of ageing. Infrared rays generate adverse heat that causes elastosis. Even visible light penetrates deep into the skin and causes oxidative damage.
Is SPF protection enough?
Most sunscreens are equipped with SPF (sun protection factor) that can either absorb or reflect UVB rays. This means the skin is still subject to the adverse effects of UVA, visible light and infrared radiation. Because of this, there is a need for a suncare formula that can shield the skin from the solar spectrum as a whole. That includes visible light, infrared radiation and UV radiation.
“Full Light Technology targets 360° Sun Spectrum and shields skin from the solar aggression of Visible Light, Infrared, UVA and UVB”
Powered by revolutionary Full Light Technology, the Dermafique Soleil Defense range is one such suncare system that targets the 360° sun spectrum for complete protection.
How does Full Light Technology work?
Full Light Technology targets 360° Sun Spectrum and shields skin from the solar aggression of Visible Light, Infrared, UVA and UVB. Here’s how:
UVA and UVB rays photo stable filters neutralize free radicals
Free radicals are unstable atoms found in the atmosphere that deteriorate skin cells. Photo stable filters neutralize these atoms and help with broad-spectrum coverage.
Inhibits mitochondrial ROS production caused by IR radiation
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are free radicals that cause premature ageing of the skin. Soleil Defense is formulated to inhibit ROS production and thereby protect skin from damage caused due to infrared rays.
Protects from persistent pigmentation [sun spots] with PA++
PA refers to the Protection Grade of UVA. PA++ is the level at which it shields skin from UVA damage as well as Persistent Pigment Darkening (PPD).
Cytoprotective action shields from visible light impact
The active ingredients and formulations form a protective shield against the cellular damage caused due to visible light.
“Soleil Defense [All Matte] and Soleil Defense [Gel Crème] both of which are formulated to keep skin comfortable all year round…”
The sun emits these rays throughout the year which makes sun protection an everyday essential, no matter what the weather is outside. Soleil Defense comes in two formats, Soleil Defense [All Matte] and Soleil Defense [Gel Crème] both of which are formulated to keep skin comfortable all year round, even in the Indian tropical climate.
If wearing sunscreen every morning wasn’t a force of habit before, it’s time to get started!
