What is Ultraviolet A?

You might be surprised to learn that initial studies to find effective sun protection ingredients didn’t consider Ultraviolet A protection. Unlike UVB, UVA doesn’t burn your skin, so you can’t feel the damage happening. Thing is, UVA is sunlight’s ageing frequency and you’ll only see the effects after some time. As the intensity of UVA radiation is always high and can’t be blocked by glass or clouds, you can be exposed to it even when you’re indoors or outside on an overcast day.

So what’s the damage of Ultraviolet A?

Ultraviolet A light activates free radicals in your skin that cause damage to your cells, the structures inside of them, the structures surrounding them (the extracellular matrix), and even the structures inside of them (cytoplasm). If these free radicals are activated inside the nucleus of the cells they can also cause damage to the DNA. This type of damage is called indirect DNA damage.

Thanks to all that damage, your cells will start to age prematurely. They’ll also try to fix their surroundings by increasing enzyme levels in a bid to remove damaged collagen and elastin. Alas, these enzyme levels, while initially helpfully, may remain high due to constant sun exposure. This then results in the breakdown of healthy coll

Get complete protection

While most sunscreens will protect your skin from the ravages of UVA, they won’t cover you from the full spectrum of Ultraviolet A light. However, Lamelle Helase 50+ contains improved UVA organic sunscreens. This means Helase will give you more protection from UVA than other ingredients. In fact, Helase has an improved critical wavelength, meaning the percentage of this frequency it protects you from is also enhanced. Another big plus? Helase 50+ also contains an advanced enzyme that will find and fix any in-direct DNA damage caused by Ultraviolet A, just in case any rays do happen to get through its sunscreen protection.


Last but not least, Helase also contains a super antioxidant – Pycnogenol – a very potent inhibitor of free radicals. It also protects healthy collagen and elastin from free radicals as well as enzyme damage. It can also reduce the enzyme levels to a point where they reconstruct skin without damaging it.
