The most recent literature shows that the damage caused by solar radiation continues to be significant even in the hours following sun exposure. This mechanism is mediated by melanin.

Humans are more exposed to solar radiation damage than animals because their melanin is not found in the hair shaft as in other mammals and bird feathers but is dispersed in granules in the epidermis, the melanosomes, at the basal layer and in the overlying layers.

In addition, melanin absorbs radiant energy but in the hours following exposure, it transmits the energy to contiguous keratinocytes by direct contact. Researchers at Vevy Europe have therefore thought of synergistically using some of the substances already developed to dissipate this type of oxidising energy in the hours following exposure and reduce the potential damage to DNA and other cellular structures.

This study therefore proposes the use of different ingredients combined synergistically, to be administered appropriately vehiculated, before, during and after sun exposure with the aim of selectively neutralising and modulating the effects of solar radiation during photo exposure and in the following hours.
