Did you know sunscreen with colour provides greater protection against skin spots? We’ll tell you why!

Sunscreen with color

In addition to UVA and UVB rays, the visible light from the sun's rays can cause skin spots, especially in people with dark skin or prone to skin spots. This type of light represents 25% of the sun's rays and directly affects pigmentation, that is, it can lead to the appearance of skin spots.  

The solution is to use wide-spectrum sun protection, with a very high factor and... with color! 

What is sunscreen with color? 

Sunscreen with color is like any other protection, but it incorporates color pigments that provide the cream with make-up-like properties, tanning your skin and achieving a more uniform appearance. What many don't know is that, in addition to leaving a great skin, it also offers further protection against skin spots.  

Benefits of sunscreen with color 

Sunscreen with color can protect against visible light thanks to the presence of various concentrations of different color iron oxides, and, in some cases, titanium dioxide. In fact, sunscreen products with color offer greater protection against hyperpigmentation than those with no color. Therefore, it's best to choose a wide-spectrum sun protection (UVA+UVB+HEV+IR) with a very high factor and color.  

In 2015, a study was conducted on 40 patients with melasma that tried different types of photoprotection. The findings showed that patients with melasma that used sunscreen with protection against UVB, UVA and HEV radiation were prone to lower recurrence after summer than those that only used protection against UVA and UVB radiation. Therefore, optimal photoprotection for patients with melasma involves a wide-spectrum sun protection with color.
