Harmful effects of the sun have been increasing in recent years, therefore improving the content of sunscreens has become a necessity. The sun creates changes to the skin not only with ultraviolet but also with radiation. These changes may include dark spots, wrinkles, and rashes. Free radicals are formed due to the oxidation of the skin by sunlight, causing premature ageing of the skin and skin cancers. So antioxidants are needed to neutralize this event. Sunscreens that contain antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, Q10, protects us better against the side effects of the sun. Observations show that Delentigo™ molecule, created to prevent the skin from developing dark spots from the Sun, helps reduce the formation of dark spots. Hyaluronic acid, which is the primary building block of collagen, moisturises our skin and helps prevent wrinkles and white spots due to dryness after sunbathing.
