NissActive is really proud to announce the publication of the article "Actifs cosmétiques anti-lumière bleue" in the Techniques de l'Ingénieur (J3008, January 2020).
Abstract: Blue light or high energy visible light (HEV) corresponds to short wavelengths (380-500 nm) naturally emitted by the sun, as well as by artificial light sources (electronic devices) ubiquitous in our environment. A chronic exposition to HEV disturbs the circadian rhythm and causes cutaneous harms by favoring the oxidative stress. Aware of these effects, cosmetics manufacturers increasingly propose anti-HEV cosmetics. After a focus on the cutaneous HEV impacts, an overview of the techniques employed to assess the efficacy of anti-HEV actives is presented. A synthesis of the main anti-HEV actives, and some commercialized formulations currently available on the market is produced.
