COOLA FULL SPECTRUM 360˚ COLLECTION

COOLA’s proprietary Full Spectrum 360˚ complex is scientifically proven to go beyond UVA and UVB to help defend from blue light, infrared and pollution.

It features a proprietary blend of antioxidants and specially harvested plant-cell cultures – all at their active levels – to help mitigate the damage from environmental and digital exposure.

UV Rays

UV RAYS

Causes premature skin aging, photo damage, and skin cancer.

Blue Light

BLUE LIGHT

Studies show that blue light penetrates more deeply than UV rays and can induce damage to deeper layers of the skin.

Pollution

POLLUTION

Particulate matter can penetrate skin and cause oxidative stress.

Ifrared

INFRARED

Exposure has been shown to accelerate skin damage.

A Sunscreen for Every Preference and Occasion

Our Full Spectrum 360˚ collection comes in two different options, to suit your skin’s needs.

The Harmful Affects of Blue Light

Why do i need blue light protection?

Blue light (also known as high energy visible light, or HEV) is the strong light that emits from the screens on cell phones, computers, tablets, and TVs, as well as from fluorescent and LED lighting. The sun also emits blue light, so you’re exposed to it when you’re outside, too. Yep, it’s everywhere.

Research indicates that blue light can reach deeper into our skin than UVA and UVB rays, and it’s causing trouble all along the way.

Why do i need blue light protection?
UVB, UVA and Visible Light
Blue Light ExposureEffects of Blue Light
Studies have shown the following effects attributed to blue light exposure:

‣ Increase in oxidative stress and free radical production in the deeper layers of the skin1, 2, 3
‣ Hyperpigmentation, similar to the effect of UVA1
‣ Decrease in the proteins that support skin elasticity4
‣ Skin cell inflammation5
‣ Degradation of the skin barrier5

UV protection is not enough

Studies conducted on skin using regular sunscreen versus sunscreen with added blue light protection showed that sunscreen alone is not enough5. When exposed to visible light, those with added defense were much more effective at combating the free radical production from visible light5.

COOLA's Scientifically proven results

COOLA's proprietary Full Spectrum 360˚ complex is scientifically proven to go beyond UVA and UVB to help defend skin from digital and environmental skin aggressors.

Before Blue Light ExposureBefore Blue Light Exposure

Before Blue Light Exposure

Fibrillin-1 fibers (highlighted in yellow) are critical to supporting skin elasticity.

Fibrillin-1 fibers were stained using immunofluorescent staining in third-party conducted ex-vivo tests on human skin.

After - Without Full Spectrum 360˚ ProtectionAfter - Without Full Spectrum 360˚ Protection

After - Without Full Spectrum 360˚ Protection

Blue light exposure visibly impacted fiber structure, damaging the shape and reducing the length (-36%).

Skin was exposed to Blue-LED 415 nm (5 mW/cm2 for 18 min) once a day, 24 hours apart. Results were measured after 72 hours.

After - With Full Spectrum 360˚ ProtectionAfter - With Full Spectrum 360˚ Protection

After - With Full Spectrum 360˚ Protection

Applying COOLA Full Spectrum 360˚ products before exposure prevents up to 86% of the damage to fibrillin-1 fibers, maintaining healthy shape and length (+48% improvement vs. untreated).

Skin was exposed in the same manner as untreated, but with application of COOLA Full Spectrum 360˚ complex beforehand. COOLA Full Spectrum 360˚ complex was applied 2x/day in each 24 hour period. Results shown here are using COOLA Full Spectrum 360˚ Refreshing Water Mist SPF 30.
