The Skin4Passion range of products are natural and dermatologically tested products. Their application endows the skin with softness, glow, nourishment and elasticity.
Skin4Passion opts for the use of hydroxytyrosol, a polyphenol found naturally in olives, as a natural and functional active ingredient.
Hydroxytyrosol is a polyphenol typically produced by the olive tree (Olea europaea L.). The remarkable antioxidant properties of hydroxytyrosol are based on its ability to interact with specific “targets” in our body and, through them, to activate our endogenous “antioxidant machinery”. In other words, hydroxytyrosol promotes and awakens our natural endogenous antioxidant defences, which risk becoming weakened over time.
Polyphenols are natural organic substances produced as “secondary metabolites” by many plant species. Polyphenols are recognised as offering useful biological properties with key importance in various areas such as cosmetics or nutraceuticals. Among their most important “widespread” biological properties are their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions to protect the cells of our body against oxidative stress.
Nowadays, it is essential to stay connected, and this leads us to use our devices more and more. Smartphone, computer or tablet screens are our windows into the world and mirrors of ourselves.
Skin4Passion has decided to use natural and functional active ingredients such as hydroxytyrosol, which, according to a study* published in June 2019 in the Journal of Cellular Physiology, offers a prevention activity on human keratinocytes and fibroblasts from damage due to exposure to blue light radiation on the skin, and thus helps protect against the Blue Light of our screens.
