naturmädchen Face Cream contains a plant-based HEV filter from the Marigold plant (Tagetes erecta L.). This active ingredient occurs naturally in the dermis and epidermis. Our Marigold extract also makes your skin look healthy and nourished by improving skin hydration and slowing down the breakdown of elastin and collagen in the skin.
Your skin is exposed to many stresses every day. Pollutants act on the outer epidermal layer, free radicals are produced by ozone, nitrogen or sulphur compounds and damage your skin.
Light is either reflected by your skin or penetrates it. Light penetrating the skin generates free oxygen radicals (ROS). The damage caused in the skin depends on the penetration depth of the light into the skin and the presence of antioxidants.
Especially visible blue light penetrates deep into the skin. Blue rays of light are everywhere and are the largest harmful spectrum of light. They are emitted particularly intensively by modern light sources such as smartphones or tablets. The use of UVA and UVB filters cannot completely absorb high-energy blue light.
The active ingredient used in our formula is a carotenoid lutein based on the Marigold plant and a powerful antioxidant. It absorbs cell-damaging high-energy blue light. It protects and cares for healthy skin cells by intercepting free radicals.
Carotenoids are yellow, orange or red pigments that form a protective component in plant leaves; they also occur naturally in eyes, skin and other tissues.
Please note, however, that the blue light filter in our face cream protects your skin from HEV light, but does not replace UVA and UVB protection.
If you are looking for all-round protection with UVA, UVB and HEV protection, order our sun screen.
