SOLEXYL® was developed by Exsymol in order to fight UVs. This active molecule inspired by nature is capable of opposing the UV noxious effects in several
– It absorbs UV and therefore decreases the direct damages of these rays
– It negates the indirect noxious effects of UV by opposing free radicals
– It prevents the isomerization of Trans-UCA into Cis-UCA hence preventing the apparition
of side effects caused by it.
Furthermore SOLEXYL provides long lasting benefits as it is naturally recycled into and from
Entadamide A, a completely safe natural UV absorber and anti-inflammatory compound found
in tropical liana, for further sun protection.
In order to limit UV-induced damage, GELYMA proposes SUN’ALG® an innovative combination of natural bioactive ingredients:
- Pongamia glabra seed oil (Karanga seed oil, deodorised grade) provides a primary shield against UV radiations, acting as a natural sunscreen thanks to its important absorption ability especially for UVB but also for UVA.
- Two microalgal extracts bring additional protective capacity against the oxidative stress thanks to their mixed carotenoids composition, these two microalgae having not been chosen by random:
- Dunaliella salina extract is mainly rich in b-carotene
- Haematococcus pluvialis extract is chiefly rich in astaxanthin.
Due to its unique ingredients combination, stable to temperature and UV radiations, SUN’ALG® offers free radical scavenger potential (IC 50% inhibition : 1.85% active with DPPH assay) helps to prevent signs of premature aging and protect the skin against damaging effects of sun exposure.
