Aftersuns are products that have the function of alleviating the effects of sun exposure and improving skin conditions. Aftersuns combat dehydration. The aftersun restore the hydrolipid film and capture the free radicals. It is known, in fact, that solar radiation first causes an inflammatory response at the skin level (redness, erythema) that can cause more or less intense annoying sensations depending on the case. The soothing ingredients contained in after-suns reduce inflammation locally and relieve the burning sensation linked to skin redness. As we have seen, then, sun exposure tends to dehydrate the skin, which is why aftersun products are rich in moisturising ingredients. The ingredients with emollient activity and returned in the aftersun serve to soften the skin, restore the skin barrier and return the substances lost during bathing or sports activities. Finally, the antioxidants contained in the aftersun limit the damage caused by free radicals.
Glass Onion has developed a line of highly dermocompatible solar products, free of mineral oils, oils and parabens that can protect the skin and generate a homogeneous and intense tan. In addition to defending it from UV rays, solar products are characterized by a wide range of specific plant derivatives (primarily the extraordinary stem extract of Buddleja Davidii) that can counter free radicals, hydrate and soften the skin. In addition, within glass Onion solar products we find Vitamin E or Tocoferol and the enzyme S.O.D. (Superoxide Dismutase) with protective and restorative action.
And here is our extraordinary emulsion Italian Gold Milk Aftersun:
Afterstal milk I moisturizing and returning.
After-sun emulsion, it fixes the tan, regenerates, hydrates, nourishes and softens the skin, refreshes and calms the redness, leaving an immediate feeling of comfort.
After-sun functional substances:
stem cells from the butterfly tree (Buddleja Davidii), wheat germ oil, shea butter, moisturising betaine, vitamin E and S.O.D.
Tocoferol or Vitamin E: (Tocopheryl Acetate)
It is a lipid vitamin that can protect the skin from free radicals, increase skin hydration and slow down lipid peroxidation.
S.O.D. Superoxide Dismutasi (Superoxide Dismutase):
Enzyme that disables the radical superoxide which is the free radical most produced by the biochemical reactions of the organism. Unlike reducing antioxidants (vitamins, carrots, acid-Lipoic etc), enzyme antioxidants tend to turn chemically reactive forms into stables. S.O.D. in synergy with classic antioxidants is particularly active in photo-induced oxidation.
Buddleja Davidii (Butterfly Tree):
Stem cells of this shrub mainly produce verbascoside (anti-inflammatory glucoside and protective photo) also performing antioxidant action and anticollagenase.
Karité Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii):
Excellent derivative from the moose of the Karité, responsible for the emollient, moisturizing and regenerating properties of the skin barrier. Rich in insaponifiable fraction is therefore a precious natural anti-ageing ingredient for the face and body, able to give the skin compactness and elasticity. Karité butter also contains tocoferoli (vitamin E), which act as natural antioxidants.
Wheat Germ (Triticum Vulgare):
Extracted from pressure from sprouted wheat seeds, this oil boasts a good percentage of linoleic acid
Betaine, also referred to as trimeilglicin, is a plant-based igroscopic substance. It interacts strongly with water by giving it special chemical-physical properties, managing to coordinate many water molecules at the same time. Betaine has the ability to protect cells from irritation caused by tensioactive agents and improves skin feel and the conditioning effect of the product.
