As consumers seek-out innovative and proven products in counteracting premature aging and enhancing skin protection, we are pleased to feature these brilliant efforts in providing new ingredients for fulfilling the present day void in anti-blue light consumer products.
It appears protection from UVA and UVB rays is no longer enough, as emerging research validates that blue light – emitted from the sun and our digital devices – is also harmful to our skin. With individuals checking their phones up to and over 150 times a day, and working adults clocking up to 10 hours of screen time daily, we are getting significantly more blue light exposure in today’s world than what we have had in the past.

INCI: Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil* (and) Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate (and) Oryza Sativa (Rice) Germ Extract (and) Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract
BLUE Oléoactif® is a new anti-pollution and anti-blue light active, extracted through a patented Oléo-éco-extraction process from three varieties of rice: black, red and brown. It is biomimetic, eco-designed, 100% vegetal, locally-sourced, totally safe and COSMOS-certified. Effectively boosts cell repair, and protects DNA and other cellular components of damaging effects induced by urban pollutants and blue light, and it is exceptionally efficient in both preventing and repairing ROS formation and damages induced by these factors.
INCI:3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid
Et-VC is now an anti-blue light derivative with excellent anti-oxidation properties. Its stability is superior to other ascorbic acid derivatives. It is widely used in skin care products, especially desirable for whitening and aging products. Et-VC is as potent as Vitamin C but with better stability.
INCI: Glycerin (and) Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7
Corum tetrapeptide mimics the activity of DHEA, the youth hormone that functions to reverse IL-6 over-production, and therefore reduce the aging symptoms as well as the phenomenon of immunosenescence. It has the ability to suppress certain cytokines which trigger the body’s acute inflammatory response, therefore inhibiting unnecessary and inappropriate inflammatory damages to the skin.
