Avene-Ultra-Light-Fluid-SPF-50-PhaMix-Blog

Avène Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ is the newest addition to the PhaMix family. Offering up ultra  broad spectrum daily sun protection, it’s ideal for normal to combination sensitive skin. Plus, its light texture allows penetration in 3 seconds and leaves an invisible, non-shiny finish on the skin. Its formula is also water resistant (40 minutes), making it perfect for every day protection.

Avène Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ also contains newly developed TriAsorB sun filter for visible blue light protection.

What is HEV Blue Light?

By now, we all know the dangers of exposure to UVA and UVB rays, but what about visible blue light? You may have heard about blue light from screens and devices, but the greatest source of visible light is the sun (also called High Energy Visible light). Occurring in the 400nm to 450nm wavelength, HEV blue light has shorter wavelengths but high energy.

How Does TriAsorB Work?

Developed by Pierre Fabre Research, TriAsorB  has a unique ability to absorb and reflect UVA, UVB and HEV rays. These rays can accelerate skin aging and also be harmful for the skin, particularly for those who are prone to pigmentation by triggering melanin production.  More melanin equals more pigmentation.

TriAsorB was also developed to create a lesser impact on the marine environment. Numerous tests have shown that it is non-toxic for 3 key species of marine biodiversity: one species of coral, one of phytoplankton and one of zooplankton at concentrations representative of those found in the environment.

The Benefits of Avène Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+

Beyond its cutting-edge HEV blue light protection, how does Avène Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ work as a daily sunscreen?

We think it hits all the marks:

  • PHOTOPROTECTIVE: photostable UVB-UVA filters that fight against the harmful effects of solar radiation.
  • ANTIOXIDANT: helps protect cells against free radicals.
  • WATER RESISTANT: protects the skin from the harmful effects of the sun even when swimming.
  • DRY TOUCH: leaves an invisible, non-sticky finish on the skin and penetrates in 3 seconds.
  • NO WHITE EFFECT: for a natural complexion and invisible daily protection.
  • FRAGRANCE FREE.

While the TriAsorB filter in Avène Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ is a great step toward protection against a new skin enemy, relying on sunscreen alone shouldn’t be your only defense.  Always use your Sun Smarts by seeking shade, staying out of the sun during peak hours and wearing hats, sunglasses and protective clothing when possible.
