The incidence of suninduced skin reactions such as sun allergy and sun intolerances has significantly increased over the past years. Polymorphic light eruption (PLE) is diagnosed in about 90% of all patients with sun allergies, who sought medical advice. The most important triggers are free radicals induced by sun exposure. The resulting oxidative stress causes cell damage that results in inflammatory and allergic reactions.
Eucerin Skin Research now developed an effective ingredient complex by combining two powerful plant derived actives
AGR (AlphaGlucosylRutin) this antioxidant is clinically proven to help protect against sun allergies (PLE). The new, even more effective combination of AGR with Licorice Extract strengthens the skins own protection system against the major triggers for sun allergies. Thus it helps reduce the skins susceptibility to develop suninduced skin reactions.
Licorice Extract (Glycyrrhiza Inflata)
Licorice Extract is a natural ingredient from the roots of Glycyrrhiza Inflata.
Due to its natural habitat this plant has developed its own protection mechanism against UV radiation. UV Radiation stimulates the enzyme production which is involved in release of an active ingredient of Glycyrrhiza Inflata. The antioxidative efficacy protects the plant cells against free radicals induced by UV radiation and is now used as a highly effective active to help protect cells in the deeper layer of the skin.
