So you’ve lathered on your sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays outside, but what about the dangerous light inside?
SPF and sun protection have become hot topics in the world of consumer skincare, but there is an even more dangerous culprit undermining your skin health that’s closer than you think: blue light.
Blue light, which comes from LEDs, computer monitors, TV and phone screens penetrates the skin at a deeper level than UVA and UVB rays.
High energy visible light reaches further into the skin’s dermis and causes 50% of the free radical damage that comes from light exposure. This means that blue light can cause more damage than UVA and UVB combined.
The average American spends 9 hours of their day on a computer.
If you’re diligent with your skincare routine and still aren’t seeing results, your phone and computer may be to blame. Free radical damage and oxidative stress can weaken the elastin and collagen in your skin, causing premature photo-aging. High energy visible light affects 40 separate skin-specific genes and could be weakening your skin’s DNA without you even noticing. Premature photo-aging is different from natural bio-aging and often looks like discoloration, deep wrinkles, and rough texture. While the melanin we’re born with helps protect us from UV light, our skin is not equipped to withstand the dangers of modern technology.
So, how do we mitigate the harmful effects of Blue Light? Fractionated Melanin.
Derived from non-GMO corn, Fractionated Melanin is effective in absorbing 62.72% of blue light. Naturally derived, this novel ingredient is non-sensitizing, non-irritating, and sits on the surface of the skin to act as a barrier. Most importantly, Fractionated Melanin does not interfere with UV protection or beneficial red light absorption.
Always at the forefront of innovative skincare, Morganna’s Alchemy has incorporated this game-changing ingredient in our Express Spot Remover formula.
When it comes to anti-aging skincare, prevention is key. Protect your skin both indoors and outside with Fractionated Melanin.
