Porphyra Umbilicalis (natural red algae)

The Porphyra Umbilicalis is a red algae found on rocky coasts. The Porphyra Umbilicalis is known for its protective properties against photo-aging, but it is also moisturizing. Ideal for reducing the damage from UVA exposure and preventing premature skin aging. More about Porphyra Umbilicalis red algae

Macademia Integrifolia

Macadamia oil helps keep the skin hydrated due to its high content of oleic acid and linoleic acid. Both are believed to have anti-inflammatory effects and help to reduce trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) and improve the skin barrier.

Shea Butter

This butter is a cooking oil and is traditionally used in African cuisine and in skin care, it is mainly used for its emollients and its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities. Due to a high concentration of naturally occurring vitamins and fatty acids, shea butter helps to moisturize dry skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

What is your day cream with natural UVA filter advice?

Apply day cream with natural UVA filter all year round during the day and combine it with a sunscreen SPF30 in spring and summer.

Differences between UVA and UVB?

First of all, the light from the sun consists of a number of elements: Ultraviolet A (UVA), Ultraviolet B (UVB), visible light and infrared (IR).

UVA rays are present with relatively equal intensity during all daylight hours throughout the year, and can penetrate clouds and glass. These UVA rays make up the largest part of the ultraviolet radiation, so more than UVB.

UVA is 30 to 50 times more frequent than UVB light

Although the intensity of UVA rays is less than UVB, it penetrates deeper into the skin, even into the dermis. Free radicals are formed in the dermis by UV rays. This causes damage to elastin and collagen fibers in the dermis, which provide the elasticity of the skin and skin fibroblasts. Skin fibroblasts are responsible, among other things, for the synthesis of collagen and elastin

UVB and UVA radiation penetrate into skin. Detailed skin anatomy.

In the long term, UVA rays can lead to skin aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, skin discolorations and even skin cancer. Tanning beds can, varying in strength, emit up to 12 x more UVA rays than the sun. In the skin, it gives a quick tan, which is short-lived. People who regularly visit tanning salons may be 2.5x more likely to develop squamous cell carcinoma. 1.5x More likely to develop basal cell carcinoma. According to a recent study, first exposure to tanning beds in childhood increases melanoma risk by 75 percent.


UVB rays

UVB penetrates into the superficial epidermis and is responsible for our vitamin D production. So for a slow and longer lasting tan. Too much UVB causes redness, sunburn and eventually also skin aging and skin cancer. Unlike UVA, UVB does not penetrate glass. Unlike UVA, UVB radiation can be up to 1000x stronger than UVA rays and does not penetrate glass to cause damage to our hereditary material, DNA.VB. The damage can disrupt the genes that control normal cell division. The damage can increase over the years, resulting in cancer.


UVA and UVB intensity

SPF – Sun Protection Factor

SPF is correlated with UVB rays and not UVA. The higher the SPF value, the more UVB is blocked and UVA rays are passed through. An SPF 30 blocks 97% UVB, SPF50 – 98% and SPF100 – 99% not available in Europe against UVB rays.


In short: In the Netherlands, UVA rays are present all year round during daylight and UVB is strongest during the spring and summer period.
