Ultra Micronized Titanium Dioxide
It provides a broad UV spectrum for UVA and UVB protection by blocking and scattering light. The small particle size distribution improves the transparency of skin while giving high UV protection. The ability of the fine Titanium Dioxide particles to scatter and absorb UV light enables them to attenuate UV radiation over a broad wavelength range. This protects the skin from damages caused by prolonged exposure to sun radiation. Additionally, it is photostable and will not degrade or oxidise, thus maintaining SPF protection as long as the particles remain in the skin. It is not irritating and also suitable for sensitive skin.
Recent scientific studies have shown that besides UV rays, another major cause of skin aging is due to progressive exposure to blue light. In fact, given our modern digital age, blue light may be even a greater cause for concern with regards to skin aging than UV rays, as besides sunlight, blue light is generated from our computer screens, iPads and iPhones.
What kind of damage can blue light do to your skin?
Blue light has the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin’s dermis layer and subcutaneous lipid layer and induce oxidative stress to the skin from deep within. It weakens the epidermis, causes hyperpigmentation to develop, and basically do a lot of damage to the extracellular matrix, leading to accelerated aging.
Protective Hydrator’s BLUELITE PROTECT® quenches blue light and provides your skin with total protection against the damaging effects of blue light, both indoor and outdoor.
Thermus Thermophilus Ferment
A state-of-art biotechnologically-derived ferment that demonstrates the unique ability to adapt and thrive in hostile environment, Thermus Thermophilus is the ultimate skin protective bioactive that protects your skin from both UV and InfraRed radiation, which are the two of the most integral causes of skin aging and pigmentation.
Why is it important to protect the skin against InfraRed radiation?
To be truly effective in day time protection, a sunscreen that provides against UVA & UVB is not sufficient. This is because InfraRed radiation(IR) comprises more than 50% of solar radiation. It produces heat which penetrates deep into the skin. This induces skin stress which increases the production of Reactive Oxygen Species(ROS), a type of free radicals that cause significant damage to skin structure. Over time, this leads to premature skin aging, pigmentation, and a host of other skin issues.
Thermus Thermophilus is ‘intelligent’ in the sense that it works harder the higher the temperature gets, to effectively cushion your skin against the damaging effects of IR and UV rays. So even when summer heat gets too intense, you’ll know that your skin is well-covered.
EPS ANTI-POLLUTANT SHIELD™
Countless studies have shown that atmospheric pollutants found both indoor and outdoor, such as heavy metals, hydrocarbons, free radicals, and Particulate Matter (PM2.5) cause a host of skin issues like premature aging, dull complexion, uneven skin tone, irritation, acne and dehydration.
Harnessing cutting-edge blue biotechnology, exopolysaccharides (EPS) are sustainably harvested from Kopora, a microorganism ecosystem unique to the French Polynesian islands. Extensive clinical studies have demonstrated that when applied on the skin, EPS has the unique ability to create an invisible, breathable film on the skin that prevents pollutants as fine as PM2.5 (Particulate Matter with a diameter of less than 2.5 micro meter) from adhering to the skin and reducing pollution-induced skin damage. At the same time, it effectively chelates heavy metal and deeply detoxifies skin cells Results? Your skin is purified, protected and its natural cellular activities are optimized, so that once again, it looks clear, luminous and radiant.
Entada Enzymatic Extract
Obtained via a patented green, heat-free, solvent-free enzymatic extraction method from the seeds of Entada phaseoloides a large vine found in tropical and coastal forests of Asia, Africa, Australia and the West Pacific, our Entada Enzymatic Extract is extremely rich in phaseoloidin, a powerful antioxidant highly valued for its ability to defend the skin against both indoor and outdoor radiation. It has excellent anti-inflammatory properties, which is especially helpful for protecting and soothing skin exposed to UV rays, infra-red and other pro-inflammatory factors. At the same time, it helps to brighten the skin and create a lovely, even skin tone that looks beautiful and luminous, even without make-up.
Yes, you need to apply Protective Hydrator to protect your skin against the damaging effects of UV rays which are present also in places where there is artificial lighting and where the sunlight streams in through glass windows.
Also, Protective Hydrator shields your skin from the damaging effects of blue light emitted from computer screens and mobile phones.
We hesitate to call Protective Hydrator a sunscreen as it is so much more than a sunscreen. It is all-round day cream that approaches daytime skin protection in a holistic way without weighing down the skin with oils or silicones like most sunscreen.
It feels lightweight and comfortable on the skin even in hot, humid weather. At the same time, it protects your skin from UV rays, blue light, infra-red, pollutants and a host of day-time free radical while keeping it hydrated and healthy.
