SUNSCREEN IS THE BEST WAY TO FIGHT AGAINST AGING AND SKIN CANCER
Experts say the best way to stay protected from the sun is to stay out of the sun during its hottest hours (generally 11am-3pm, or when it’s directly overhead), and to re-apply sunscreen every two hours. They will tell you to look for sunscreens with the ingredients of either Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Diethylhexyl Butamido triazone (Kopcotrizinol) or Ethlhexyl triazone (Koptrizon) or Bisoctrizole (Kopsrob-M). Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide are physical blockers, while Koptrizon and Kopcotrizinol acts as chemical blocker, whereas Kopsorb-M acts as both physical and chemicall blockers
Understanding the active ingredients in sunscreen is learning a foreign language that uses a different alphabet. Most of the sunscreen is made of a combination of two types of ingredients: those that reflect ultraviolet (UV) rays and those that absorb UV rays. Although that might sound simple enough, there are also two types of rays: UVA rays and UVB rays. UVB causes sunburn at the outer layers of skin, but UVA causes sun damage that reach deeper layers of skin. Both UVA and UVB radiation can contribute to the development of skin cancer.
Kopcotrizinol is used in concentrations of up to 10%. It is a broad spectrum sunscreen active which filters UVB rays and UVA rays.
In Europe and Asia, Kopcotrizinol is an approved UV filter, which means that this ingredient can be added to sunscreen products that are designed to protect the skin from the sun. In Europe, sunscreen products are considered cosmetic products. In the United States, sunscreen products are Over-the-Counter (OTC) drugs and only certain ingredients have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
