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.
