Hallstar launches an innovative UV filter to halt skin ageing process

Hallstar’s new anti-aging ingredient designed to block the formation of light-induced oxidative stress took silver at the in-cosmetics Global Innovation Ingredient Awards in London.

Micah’s breakthrough chemistry represents a whole new category of sun care protection and anti-aging because it halts the photo-aging process before it starts,” explains Robert Hu, Vice President of Research & Development at Hallstar. “Independent clinical research shows that Micah, unlike sunscreens or antioxidants, prevents 100% of free radicals, ROS [1], inflammation, and DNA damage from UVA and Visible Light, at a use level of only 0.2%.

An ex vivo study on human skin explants has that Micah effectively prevented UVA-induced ROS at a use level of 0.20%.
