Product Description

PHOTODYNAMIC DAY CREAM SPF15 uniquely harnesses the power of light to rejuvenate the skin and boost Vitamin D levels, while offering photoprotection throughout the entire Solar Constant (the medical term for UV, Infrared + Visible Light combined). Skin identical sunscreens Zinc and Melanin form a soothing, protective shield with a super light skin feel and ultra-sheer application. Macro hydrators and light diffusing particles complete the profile and deliver an immediate skin perfecting and dewy luminosity.

Active Ingredients

Photoprotective, photosynethetic + photorejuvenating agents 

Zinc Oxide
-  The only sunscreen found naturally in the body.
-  Acts as a photo catalyst and absorbs and scatters UV radiation, converting it to heat and light that has a rejuvenating effect on skin connective tissue. 

Bemotrizinol 
-  A unique and photo-stable new UV filter, which has both organic and inorganic properties
-  UVA + UVB action spectrum
-  Also initiates a catalytic effect.

Crown of Gold Extract
-  An Australian Photoprotective Botanical extract containing a Stillbenoid Piceid Glucoside that provides multiple pathways of solar protection including the activation of Antioxidant Transcription Factors and Heat Shock Proteins combined with a reduction Cytotoxic Photoproducts and Apoptotic Sunburn Cells. 

Indian Mulberry + Carmine 
-  Naturally occurring iridiphores (target pigments) that absorb UV and visible light
-  Converts UV & visible light to low energy coherent light that has a radiant photo-rejuvenating effect in skin

Silica
-  Forms a photo-protective film over the skin and assists in converting UVR to photo-rejuvenating spectra of heat and light

Acetyl Tetrapeptide-22 
-  A photoprotective peptide that stimulates synthesis of Heat Shock Protein-70 (HSP-70).
-  HSP’s are important photo-protective agents in cutaneous biology. -
-  Heat Shock Proteins are a class of functionally related proteins involved in the folding and unfolding of other proteins. Their expression is increased when cells are exposed to elevated temperatures or other stress. (1)
-  HSP-70 proteins can act to protect cells from thermal or oxidative stress.
- These stresses normally act to damage proteins,causing partial unfolding and possible aggregation. By temporarily binding to hydrophobic residues exposed by stress, HSP-70 prevents these partially denatured proteins from aggregating and allows them to refold. In addition to improving overall protein integrity, HSP-70 directly inhibits apoptosis. (2)

Melanin 
- Melanin is the skins own sunscreen however, it becomes inactive with age.
- The photochemical properties of melanin make it the ideal photo protectant as it displays a hyper efficient capacity to absorb 99.9% UVR and transform it to heat through a process known as Ultrafast Internal Conversion (UIC).
- Melanin is the most potent known protector against UVR induced DNA damage.

7- Dehydrocholesterol (7-DHC)
- Precursor to Vitamin D found throughout the epidermis.
- When irradiated by UVR, 7-DHC converts to Vitamin D in situ. In this way we have used sunlight to increase and supplement skin Vitamin D levels.
- The presence of this compound in human skin enables humans to manufacture Vitamin D3 from Ultra Violet rays in sunlight, via an intermediate isomer pre-vitamin D3. (3)
