As consumers seek-out innovative and proven products in counteracting premature aging and enhancing skin protection, we are pleased to feature these brilliant efforts in providing new ingredients for fulfilling the present day void in anti-blue light consumer products.

It appears protection from UVA and UVB rays is no longer enough, as emerging research validates that blue light – emitted from the sun and our digital devices – is also harmful to our skin.  With individuals checking their phones up to and over 150 times a day, and working adults clocking up to 10 hours of screen time daily, we are getting significantly more blue light exposure in today’s world than what we have had in the past.

2. An All-Star for Hallstar: BLUE Oléoactif

INCI: Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil* (and) Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate (and) Oryza Sativa (Rice) Germ Extract (and) Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract

BLUE Oléoactif® is a new anti-pollution and anti-blue light active, extracted through a patented Oléo-éco-extraction process from three varieties of rice: black, red and brown. It is biomimetic, eco-designed, 100% vegetal, locally-sourced, totally safe and COSMOS-certified. Effectively boosts cell repair, and protects DNA and other cellular components of damaging effects induced by urban pollutants and blue light, and it is exceptionally efficient in both preventing and repairing ROS formation and damages induced by these factors.

3. BASF Brings The Block with Ciste’m® and DN-Age®

INCI: Maltodextrin (and) Cistus Monspeliensis Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract    and  INCI: Cassia Alata Leaf Extract|Cassia Alata Leaf Extract

Ciste’M®, a rockrose extract adapted to the arid climate, protects the DNA of skin cells from the effects of UVB exposure and prevents the deleterious effects of blue light. DN-Age®, a candle bush leaf extract, promotes the cell’s youth during sun exposure. It offers comprehensive cellular DNA protection against UVA, UVB, and blue light and helps to promote the skin’s natural DNA repair process.  INCI: Maltodextrin (and) Cistus Monspeliensis Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract

Ciste’M® by BASF functions as an anti-oxidant, anti-wrinkle agent and anti-inflammatory. It is a vegetal phoenix to rescue urban skin from multi-light exposure. It is an extract of Mediterranean Rockrose adapted to arid climate. Protects the DNA of skin cells from the effects of UVB exposure and prevents premature aging due to pollution. It maintains skin integrity and function as it stimulates the release of ECM1 protein, implicated in skin physiology. It reduces lipid peroxidation due to UVA and air pollution, UV-B induced DNA damage and repair and UV-B induced release of inflammation mediators. Offers free radical scavenging on hair, resurfacing and accelerates skin renewal. Ciste’M® is used in sun protection, after-sun care, and face care applications

DN-Age™ is an extract from the leaves of Cassia alata (the candle tree), which is rich in a specific polyphenol that has been found to protect against the deep effects of UV radiation on the skin. DN-Age™ reduces the photo-induced damages on DNA by preventing UVB-induced damage to nuclear DNA and UVA-induced damage to mitochondrial DNA. In addition, this product was clinically proven to reduce sun-induced fine line formation.
