Ashland_Blue_Light_ProtectionAshland introduces Blumilight™ biofunctional in powder form under the trade name Blumilight™ P biofunctional. Launched early in 2016, Blumilight™ biofunctional was the first ingredient introduced on to the market to help mitigate blue light stress and reduce digital aging.

Natural Active for Waterless Formulations

Blumilight™ P biofunctional boasts additional sustainability credentials with no water and no solvents used in its production and is COSMOS-validated. The new powder format answers the needs of formulators working in color cosmetics. In addition to face care and body care formulations, Blumilight™ P biofunctional can also be used in sun care and makeup products.

Blumilight™ P is a pink powder, readily soluble in cold water that intends to be effective at very low concentrations. It is best suited to waterless formulations and color cosmetics, such as eyeshadows or free and pressed powders.

Ingredient Reduces Oxidative Stress

Blumilight™ biofunctional has been shown to deliver a broad range of skin benefits in blue-light stress conditions. It reduces oxidative stress, helps limit the damage induced by blue light stress on light photoreceptors in the skin, and helps increase skin elastin fibers network.

A clinical study on volunteers exposed to blue light 8h/day showed a decrease in skin wrinkles and an increase in skin elasticity, when they used a formulation containing 1 percent Blumilight™ biofunctional.

Composed of polyphenols, peptides and oligosaccharides extracted from non-fermented cocoa beans, Blumilight™ P biofunctional has a sustainable sourcing profile in Alto Piura, Peru, with transparency and traceability over the supply chain. Blumilight™ P biofunctional is extracted from a rare, premium cocoa variety, the criollo porcelana. Criollo means the original cocoa, and porcelana relates to the whiteness of the beans.
