The Truth about SPF Index & Sun Protection
NEW YORK, April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Today it is nearly impossible to find skincare and make-up products without SPF. BIONOVA weighs the side-effects of the overuse of this sun protection chemical.
SPF Does Not Protect Against Some Cancer-Causing Rays
Skin Cancer Research revealed that SPF measures protection against only the burn-causing UVB, but does not measure protection against UVA, which penetrates the deeper layers of skin, contributing to skin cancer and skin aging.
SPF Deprives Your Skin
Almost 99% of the vitamin D we make comes from sun exposure. With the overuse of SPF, Americans are becoming more vitamin D deprived, resulting in an increased risk of cancer, heart disease, and PMS symptoms. In addition to the deprivation of vitamins, this over-exposure to the sun-protecting chemicals creates a “plastic bag” effect which suffocates the skin.
BIONOVA products have no SPF but work with the body to enhance body’s natural protective ability from Sun Radiation and Sun Burn
BIONOVA scientists recognized multiple substances in our body, which protect us from the sun radiation and burn without SPF, including amino acids, non-aromatic and aromatic nucleic acids, long chain unsaturated fatty acids, and naturally existing body pigments, like melanin.
By imitating these substances that naturally exist in the body, BIONOVA created a specific UV Chromophores Nano-Complex (UV Protectants), which enhances body’s natural ability against the harmful radiation.
Hats, clothing and shade are still the most reliable sun protection available, especially from 11am to 3pm. The Human Body needs Sun’s UV wavelengths in the balanced amount but in an appropriate time of the day.
Beyond a lotion or cream, it is always important to remember that the key to well-being is in moderation and balance.
