THE SUN IS JUST ONE OF THE THINGS THIS REMARKABLE CREAM PROTECTS YOU FROM.
Beyond Sun Protection is both a chemical (organic) sunscreen and a physical (mineral) sunblock, an extraordinary cream formulated to combat the damage wreaked by modern lifestyles’ relentless exposure to sun, blue light, and pollution.
The promise is in its name: Beyond Sun Protection delivers beyond ordinary sunscreens and creams, setting a new standard in skin defence.
Offers the highest
against a wide range
of hazards to the skin
UVA / UVB,
IT SHIELDS AGAINST UVA AND UVB
In-vivo tests on Beyond Sun Protection demonstrate an SPF or Sun Protection Factor of 79.7 against UVB ultraviolet rays and a PA++++ of 10 equivalent to Extremely High or the highest UVA protection available.
It also has a PPD i.e. persistent pigment darkening protection rating of 17+, one of the highest ratings for UVA protection. PPD10 blocks 90% of UVA rays—PPD17+ would make it a solid shield against UVA rays.
SUN PROTECTION FACTOR
IT ALSO PROTECTS SKIN FROM THE DANGERS OF BLUE LIGHT
Blue light—also known as HEV or High Energy Visible light—is everywhere: emitted by the sun, by digital devices, LED and fluorescent lighting, and TV screens.
Recent studies confirmed that blue light penetrates deeper into the skin compared with UVA & UVB light and is even more damaging to skin than UVA & UVB light.
Blue light stimulates the production of free radicals in the skin, causing wrinkles, looseness, and sagging. In addition to ageing skin prematurely, blue light also aggravates melasma and causes hyperpigmentation, redness, and inflammation.
IT EVEN DEFENDS AGAINST POLLUTION AND MAKES SKIN BRIGHTER, DEWIER, AND YOUNGER-LOOKING.
In another clinical trial, Beyond Sun Protection demonstrated safeguarding participants from smog, haze, and other forms of environmental air pollution—a major cause of premature ageing and pigmentation.
Beyond Sun Protection is also a safe and effective panacea for dry skin. Another study showed a 32% increase in study participants’ skin moisture after 27 days, as well as significant improvement of fine lines and wrinkles. Its whitening properties also lightened complexions significantly, delivering even-toned, radiant skin.
Skin Moisture by
Sunblock should be the final step in your skincare routine and just under foundation and make-up. Apply Beyond Sun Protection after other skincare products. We strongly recommend applying sufficient amount to fully cover the face and neck. Re-application is recommended after heavy perspiration every 2 or 3 hours. With protection against Blue Light and environmental pollution, Beyond Sun Protection is suitable for use indoors and even at night.
Sunscreens are products that help prevent the sun’s ultraviolet light or UV, blue light or HEV, and Infrared or IR radiation from damaging the skin.
Sunscreens, topically applied, absorb or reflect harmful blue light and ultraviolet and infrared radiation. This helps protect the skin against sunburn, premature ageing, hyperpigmentation, and the risk of skin cancer.
There are two types of ultraviolet radiation—UVA and UVB. The difference is in the wavelengths: UVA, long wave ultraviolet A, penetrates deep into the dermis, the skin’s thickest layer. UVB, short wave ultraviolet B, causes harm to the superficial layers of the skin.
UVA causes skin damage including hyperpigmentation, premature ageing, photo-ageing or skin wrinkling, and melasma. It also suppresses the immune system.
UVB is the culprit behind sunburn and the risk of skin cancer.
Blue light—also known as High Energy Visible Light or HEV—is a short wavelength that produces high amounts of energy ranging from 380 to 500 nanometres.
It is scientifically proven that blue light causes skin damage including hyperpigmentation, inflammation, photo-ageing—skin wrinkling and sagging—and it induces oxidative stress and weakens the skin’s surface.
Blue light penetrates deeper into the skin compared with UVA and UVB. Some studies also suggest that blue light induces skin pigmentation more than UVA and is the major culprit for melasma.
Beyond Sun Protection is clinically proven (in vitro and in vivo) with protection score rating of 54.1% from Blue Light.
SPF is short for Sun Protection Factor and specifically indicates protection against the UVB rays that cause sunburn.
For example, if your skin normally burns after 10 minutes under the hot sun without protection, an SPF 50 sunscreen would provide 50 times the protection versus bare skin. This means 500 minutes of sun exposure before you start to burn.
Beyond Sun Protection has a score rating of SPF 79.7.
PPD or Persistent Pigment Darkening is an in vivo method for measuring UVA protection. This is a highly effective method for assessing UVA protection and is mandatory in Japan and Europe.
Beyond Sun Protection demonstrated a score rating of PPD 17.2.
(PPD10 blocks 90% of UVA rays)
PA or Protection Grade of UVA is another measurement of UVA protection. PA++++ grade offering protection of 15 and above is currently the highest rating for UVA protection.
Beyond Sun Protection offers UVA protection of 17 and above.
Non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic denote that the product will not clog pores, cause acne, nor make an existing acne condition worse.
Environmental pollutants are scientifically proven to cause skin damage by inducing free radicals and oxidative stress resulting in premature ageing, hyperpigmentation, and skin inflammation. It also aggravates melasma.
Free radicals are created when UV rays come into contact with your skin. Free radicals cause skin inflammation and damage, leading to premature ageing, wrinkling—even serious skin health issues.
Antioxidants are clinically proven to effectively fight free radical damage. They safely interact with and neutralise free radicals, helping protect your complexion to keep it looking fresh and radiant.
Sunscreens offer varying degrees of protection against UVA and UVB. However, sun damage is not caused by UVA and UVB alone. Recent scientific evidence has revealed that blue light or HEV is also a major cause of hyperpigmentation, melasma, and premature skin ageing. Environmental pollution, too, has been shown to be very harmful to skin.
A good sunscreen, then, must be able to offer adequate and effective protection against all these—UVA/B, HEV, and environmental pollution. Hence, protection score ratings of SPF, PPD, and HEV provide the first clue to choosing the right sunscreen.
Next, ensure that product score ratings stated are clinically proven. The sunscreen should also have anti-pollution and antioxidant properties and be non-comedogenic. Needless to say, the texture of the sunscreen is also an important factor to consider.
A physical sunblock (also known as a mineral sunblock) creates a barrier on the skin that filters out UV rays. It literally blocks UV rays from penetrating the skin. A chemical sunscreen penetrates the skin, absorbs UV Light, turns it into heat, and releases it from the skin.
Beyond Sun Protection has the best of both worlds—it is both a physical sunblock and a chemical sunscreen and offers complete protection both ways.
There is a bewildering range of sunscreens at various price points from all over the world. What makes Beyond Sun Protection special?
Beyond Sun Protection is a standout facial sunscreen that took five years to develop. Numerous research studies, trials, and formula testing were conducted across various countries during this time. The final product guarantees more than adequate protection against blue light or HEV at 54.1%, UVA with PPD 17.2, and UVB with SPF 79.7.
All protection score ratings of Beyond Sun Protection are clinically derived and proven. In addition to the broad-spectrum protection against harmful sun radiation, Beyond Sun Protection is also anti-pollution, antioxidant, and offers protection against infrared radiation; it is hydrating, whitening, and non-comedogenic. Each of these claims is fully supported by stringent lab test or clinical trial reports from leading institutions.
Despite the complete and very high protection level against sun damage to the skin, this cream is also extremely wearable—light, non-greasy, and with a dry touch. In fact, this is the first thing you will notice—how wearable it is—and is the result of yearsof relentless testing.
Beyond Sun Protection has been tested for: SPF in vitro and in vivo with a score rating of SPF 79.7; blue light or HEV in vitro and in vivo with a score rating of 54.1%; PPD or Persistent Pigment Darkening in vivo with a score rating of 17.2 (PA++++); and anti-pollution, infrared protection, antioxidant, non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, hypoallergenic, and whitening properties. It was also tested for its ability to hydrate, with results showing a 32% increase in moisture after 27 days of use. All claims are fully supported by scientific evidence.
