Diesel Particles, Infrared Radiation, Visible Light
Extend your urban protection range…

With a better understanding of the different types of pollutants and their associated pathways, novel protection strategies are now being developed

For quite some time, urban protection has been mostly limited to UV-filters, anti-oxidants or second-skin polymers.  With a better understanding of the different types of pollutants and their associated pathways, novel protection strategies are now being developed.  Symrise has been a pioneer in the field and is offering advanced active solutions to help you extend your urban protection range.
 

Bringing Anti-PM protection to a new level

Based on a major epidemiological study establishing the connection between particulate pollution and skin aging, Symrise has discovered the pathway through which PM alter skin functions.  This laid the foundation of a new set of thoroughly substantiated anti-PM actives.

» SymUrban®, the first cosmetic ingredient capable of neutralizing the adverse effects of PM and PAHs on key mechanisms leading to wrinkle and spot formation.
» SymVital®
AR (enriched extract from Ginger root), skin tone and texture beautifier
» SymFinity® 1298 (pure extract from Coneflower), skin soothing and anti-aging

 

Extending light protection beyond UV rays

Since the 90’s photo-protection has been focusing on UVB and UVA, largely underestimating the critical role of Infrared radiation and Visible Light in skin aging.  Yet, this longer wavelength radiation goes deeper into the skin than UV light and triggers specific mechanisms leading to skin hyperpigmentation and wrinkle formation.
