BLUMILIGHTâ„¢ FOR BLUE LIGHT POLLUTION PROTECTION

GUARD AGAINST DIGITAL AGING

Blue light pollution refers to artificial blue light exposure associated with a hyper-connected lifestyle and is a major component of electronic devices such as cell phones, tablets and computers. Just as protection from UV or air pollutants is essential, protection from blue light pollution may help minimize digital aging of the skin.
Blumilight™ biofunctional is a Theobroma Cocoa Seed extract to help skin fight blue light pollution from electronics. Blumilight contains cocoa peptides, saccharides and polyphenols derived from non fermented seeds. Due to its unique composition, Blumilight is associated with a better resistance to blue light stress, compared to conventional cocoa polyphenols, in vitro. By limiting the visible effects of blue light pollution on skin, Blumilight addresses the changing lifestyles of consumers in a hyper-connected world.
 

BENEFITS OF BLUMILIGHT™

• Decrease in reactive oxygen species during blue light stress (in vitro)
• Maintenance of opsin photoreceptors during blue light stress (in vitro)
• Increase in collagen I, fibrillin-1 and syndecan-4 (in vitro, ex vivo)
• Visible improvement of elastin fiber network (ex vivo)
• Improvement of skin elasticity (in vivo)
• Visible improvement of skin wrinkles (in vivo)
