Chemyunion on urban stress: “Modern times require ingredients for skin protection”

80% of the world’s population live in areas that exceed the air quality limits recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), and are therefore more prone to develop acne, psoriasis, eczema and atopic dermatitis.

Consumers have been changing their lifestyle and looking for products to protect against the damage caused by pollution and urban stress. It is a fact: modern times necessitate formulas for perfect skin,” explains Chemyunion, a designer and manufacturer of innovative active ingredients, basic and functional excipients, for the health and personal care markets.

Chemyunion offers several ingredients that are scientifically proven to protect against the harmful effects of urban life:

- SkinBlitz is the first anti-pollution active product that reduces the permeation of pollutants by 65% with a polymer film that provides a more protected and healthy skin. According to Chemyunion, SkinBlitz inhibits hyperpigmentation and has calming properties, reducing IL-6 (interleukin-6) production by 37%.

- AcquaBio is an active product that provides 72 hours of hydration through a biological mechanism. It stimulates envelope proteins (involucrin and filaggrin), while increasing the flow of water inside the epidermis, stimulating the production of Aquaporin-3. AcquaBio also ensures water retention in the skin, by producing glycosaminoglycans that in turn, help increase the production of collagen and elastin.

- Biolumitá is an active ingredient with triple whitening action that acts on the three main pathways of skin pigmentation: melanin synthesis, and the production and transport of melanosomes. Biolumitá can reduce hyperpigmentation by up to 40%, and increases skin brightness by up to 107%. Its effectiveness is proven on the face, underarms and groin, bringing an excellent whitening result with uniformity of skin tone.

Hygeaphos is an active product that reduces the oiliness of the skin by 25%, while also reducing the symptoms of discomfort caused by acne. 

To illustrate the power of these ingredients, Chemyunion has created a concentrate serum for protection and caring against urban stress damage. Download the formula: Urban Shock Care Essence.
