Biodegradable Sunscreen

The biodegradable sunscreen offers full spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays. With titanium dioxide as a sunscreen, white birch extract to improve skin texture, and
herbal emollients to smooth and hydrate, you have the perfect biodegradable sunscreen.  
The biodegradable sunscreen are healthy for you and for the environment.

To choose the right sunscreen, consider how vulnerable you are:

  • Skin color: Dark skin and deep tans tolerate the sun's rays more readily than fair skin. But no skin color is completely impervious to burn.
  • Weather conditions: Overcast skies can decrease the amount of harmful exposure. But sunlight does penetrate the clouds, so you still need to be careful.
  • Altitude: The higher up you are, the harsher the sun's rays. Reflection off of snow or water can add significantly to sunburn danger.
  • Length of exposure: The longer you're outside, the higher your risk of burn.

Sunscreen and Environment

Exposure to the sun's rays is the most important factor in the ageing of the skin. Every time we expose the skin to the sun, some degenerative damage takes place. As exposure to sunlight produces free radicals, a new trend in sun-protection products is to include Vitamins E and C. Ultraviolet light, smoking and other forms of pollution produce an inflammatory reaction in the cells.

There are many kinds of ultraviolet rays, depending on wavelengths. The UVA and UVB rays are damaging to the skin. The UVA rays have a longer wave-length and do not bum the skin. They, however, penetrate the skin and affect the dermis by causing damage to collagen and elastin, the supportive tissues of the skin.

Soy Screen, a biodegradable sunscreen derived from soybean oil, could be a step closer to becoming a commercial product for health-conscious consumers.

Soy Screen owes its sunburn-preventing properties to ferulic acid, an antioxidant in rice, oats and other plants. To keep the antioxidant from dissolving in water, the Peoria researchers chemically bound it to soy oil using lipase enzymes and heat in an environmentally friendly process called bio catalysis. The resulting lotion won't wash off from swimming or sweat, and is non-polluting.

In sun-protection-factor tests there, Soy Screen filtered out harmful ultraviolet light as well as four chemical UV absorbers: oxybenzone, dioxybenzone, octyl methoxycinnamate and padimate-O.
