In the 1980’s, research lead to the finding that Infrared radiation (IR) may contribute to premature skin aging due to damage that it caused in the skin. Initially it was believed that IR would not penetrate the skin but it has since been shown that IRA, wavelengths 760-1440 nm, penetrates the skin as deeply as UVA. Continuing research has shown that the skin damage that IRA causes is similar to both UVA and UVB skin damage and it may actually increase the damage done by UVA and UVB radiation. There is some belief that IRA plays an important role in dermal inflammation, photoaging and cancer formation. Thus considering the mounting evidence on IR skin damage, suncare products that filter the UVA and UVB rays may be insufficient since they do not block all the damaging rays emitted from the sun. It would be in the consumer’s best interest to consider a new perspective on IR radiation and that protection from IR should be incorporated into modern suncare products. A number of In vitro, Ex vivo and In vivo methods have been used to look at the protection from the damaging effects of IR radiation. This presentation will look at the testing of an anti-aging formula that extends sun protection to include protection against infrared radition using a new In vivo assay. The results of the testing will show that it is possible to measure the erythema caused by infrared radiation and the statistically significant reduction in erythema by bio-active ingredients targeting the underlying damage caused by IR.
