Nanoparticle-free sun creams for skin care

Using sunscreen is essential to take care of our skin. Many people like to enjoy the summer, the sun and love getting a healthy looking tan.  However, experts keep insisting that sun protection is of vital importance. Not only to prevent premature aging, but also to prevent much deeper and more dangerous damage, such as skin cancer.

Up until recently most of us didn´t like wearing a thick white layer of sunscreen on our face and body. The vast majority of these products were not fully absorbed by the skin hence this ghost look. This is the reason sun cream manufacturers have spent a lot of time developing products that do not have this drawback.

To achieve this, small particles or nanoparticles of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide were used. These types of creams worked very well to protect the skin from UV rays for prolonged periods. However, scientific studies have shown the potential damage that these types of molecules can cause. The nano size of these particles makes it possible for them to enter our cells, causing serious long-term damage.

For this reason, many sun protection products are taking a step back and offering solutions, without counting on nanoparticles. At Konse, we have several options for sun creams that protect your skin, without the need to use these types of toxic elements.

NUORI’s Mineral Defence Sunscreen is an all-natural formula that delivers broad spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

French maritime pine extract helps inhibit oxidative stress induced by pollutants, sunburn and photoaging and helps reduce hyper-pigmentation and rebuild skin elasticity for a skin-perfecting result. The antioxidant properties of the formula are further strengthened by vitamin E and carrot seed oil, while sunflower seed oil, rich in omega-6 fatty acids, helps decrease inflammation, maintain a healthy skin barrier, and enhance the development of new skin cells for a smoother, younger-looking skin.
