Blue light, a new target for anti-aging products?

The blue light emitted by the screens of our computers or smartphones is also a factor of skin ageing that has been revealed and strengthened by our highly connected lifestyles. The phenomenon concerns people of all ages and from any continents. Of course, this universal problem has caught the attention of cosmetics manufacturers and some ingredients suppliers have already included the issue in their proposals.

In most markets, the search for anti-aging formulas that can protect the skin against the harmful effects of the exposome remains one of the main focuses. While anti-pollution innovation was recently put under the spotlights, protections against the light spectrum rays (UV rays included) remain the market’s main sellers, with over 800 new anti photo-ageing products launched over 12 last months. In addition to UVA, UVB and infrared, the blue light is now viewed as new inflammation factor from which the skin needs to be protected.

Excessive blue light accelerates the oxidation process, it stimulates the keratinocytes and acts on melatonin causing the apparition of spots,” explains Gérard Redziniak, PhD, scientific consultant and formulator of dermo-cosmetic products.

New generations of actives

During the latest edition of the in-cosmetics tradeshow, Greentech, a specialist in biotechnology, was addressing directly this new concern with the launch of Soliberine, a new daily global photoprotective active.

According to Greentech, Soliberine is an antioxidant and free radical-scavenger, which stimulates cellular detoxification systems, protects from inflammation, and prevents photoaging. It is derived from Buddleja officinalis flowers, or butterflybush, coming from the Chinese province of Sichuan. Soliberine is reduces the production of free radicals induced by blue light rays (from LED, smartphones, screens ...) and therefore fights premature aging. It also acts on UV-induced lipid peroxidation and inhibits the synthesis of MMP-1 (which degrades the fibres of the dermal matrix) caused by infrared rays.

Greentech launched Soliberine at the last edition of the in-cosmetics tradeshow, which was held in Paris

A real booster of natural filters, Soliberine is a real antioxidant and anti-inflammatory solution for sensitive skins. An appropriate response to photo-ageing for “enlightened” consumers.
