All about blue light

Blue light

 

What’s all this about blue light?

Blue light is a part of the spectrum of visible light, and is a high-energy, shorter-wavelength light, not to be confused with UVA or UVB rays.

The main source of the blue light we're exposed to is the sun, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology. However, we also get a significant dose from our screens — phones, tablets, computers - and indoor lighting.

Blue light isn't all bad: it plays a role in maintaining good health, as it regulates our body's circadian rhythm — our natural sleep-wake cycle, and elevates mood and helps memory and cognitive function.

But is blue light damaging your skin?

Indeed there is mounting evidence that blue light does contribute to photo-aging, including discoloration, inflammation, wrinkles, and skin laxity. Studies also suggest that exposure to blue light might stimulate the production of free radicals in skin, which can accelerate the appearance of aging.

What to do about it?

New remarkable Revivinol Serum includes the compound Lumicease Blue, which helps prepare the skin through an adaptive response to light and targets the defense against blue light, UV, and infra-red radiations from phones, tablets and computers, as well as pollutants in the air and other damaging environmental aggressors.

A decrease in appearance of brown spots by 11.7% as well as in the amount of UV spots by 14.1% was observed after 56 days of treatment using Lumicease. Wrinkle volume and average roughness also diminished 21.5% and 13.2% respectively.

All about stress and how it affects your skin

Best skincare product for stressed skin

Stress is a part of life, and stress can affect the health and appearance of skin.


When the body is under stress, it releases cortisol, a regulatory substance transported in tissue fluids to stimulate specific cells or tissues into action.

This effect, over time, can negatively affect the skin in a number of ways.

While managing stress is of utmost important, it’s good to know there is topical help:

HA7X Multi-Molecular Hydrator Serum with Neurophroline™

Neurophroline is the first cosmetic active ingredient shown to address the visible effects of cortisol. It is derived from the wild indigo plant, Tephrosia purpurea, a native Indian plant used in Ayurvedic medicine for its skin benefits. Neurophroline also helps promote the release of endorphins which are relaxing neuropeptides in skin.

Neurophroline is the primary “hero” ingredient in HA7X Serum, which is the first U.S. product to contain this gold-award winning active.

Givaudan Active Beauty, the inventor of Neurophroline, has this to say about this remarkable ingredient:


Neurophroline™: think yourself younger

The revolutionary stress-busting active Neurophroline™, developed by Givaudan can not only combat the signs of environmental aggressors such as pollution and climate, but can also treat the real culprit of ageing – stress. Stress takes its toll on our skin, accelerating ‘wear and tear’ such as circles under the eyes, a fatigued appearance or fine lines. This breakthrough development from Givaudan triggers different actions in our physiological makeup to combat our stress hormones.

Romain, Givaudan’s R&D Director explains how it works: “Being stressed is actually bad for your skin; there are many products for anti-ageing, but none that target stress, despite the fact that this is a key ageing culprit.

“Our new product, Neurophroline™, stimulating the ‘feel good’ beta-endorphins and combating the main stress-hormone, cortisol.” 

He continues: “We can tell whether the product is working by checking that the genes promoting the anti-oxidation are being stimulated. Anti-oxidation is a process that counteracts the negative effect of stress; this is scientifically important because of the link between feeling stressed and ageing skin. This powerful active ingredient generates results in two weeks, especially on high stress areas where the skin is thinnest, e.g. around the eyes."

Romain also gives insights into how feeling less stressed can make us look younger, and why: “Our skin and our brains share the same embryonic origin, meaning that how we feel inside affects how we look outside. If we are stressed, we will look tired, and age faster. If the brain thinks we’re happy and balanced, the skin will react positively… essentially we can think ourselves young again!”

All about the patented protein Keravis in RevivHair Stimulating Conditioner

Before and after using Keravis in RevivHair Stimulating Conditioner

Hair Strengthening Protein

Healthy hair is resistant to breakage because it demonstrates flexibility within its cortex as well as maintaining cuticle integrity. Through daily grooming and styling, hair is subjected to tensile forces, bending stresses and cuticle abrasion that ultimately cause a weakening of the hair fiber itself in addition to damaging the cuticle layer.

Increasing the strength of the hair is a two-fold strategy that must address both its inner flexibility along with the integrity of its surface layer. With an intermediate-range molecular weight of 1800, Keravis™ (INCI: Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol) addresses both of these issues by simultaneously penetrating the hair shaft to optimize moisture content and plasticity of the hair, while also forming a cross-linking film that coats the hair to lubricate, protect and reinforce the cuticle. Hair treated with the Keravis strengthening active shows a proven increase in hair strength - triple the strength of damaged hair compared to a control conditioner. Treated hair can demonstrate the increased resilience, flexibility and reduced breakage seen in healthy hair.

RevivHair Stimulating Conditioner utilizes this patented protein to address the three fundamental parameters of hair strength: tensile properties, bending modulus and cuticle abrasion.
