The art of tanning

Esthederm Institut

Optimizing tanning for every skin type, allowing even the most delicate skin to be more tolerant, maintaining youthfulness and preventing hyperpigmentation are the major research concerns developed by Institut Esthederm since it was founded.

TANNING, A WAY OF LIFE … AND A SCIENCE

While a tan is a symbol of seduction, it is also the skin’s natural protective reaction against sunburn. Innovative cell protection technologies have enabled Institut Esthederm research to make major developments that have put Institut Esthederm suncare products at the very forefront of anti-aging care.

ESTHEDERM: A POSITIVE APPROACH TO THE SUN

Letting just the right amount of sun through is required for the most natural of the skin’s self-protection reactions – tanning. For this reason, Institut Esthederm skincare optimizes the speed, intensity and quality of a tan, while maintaining the cell structures.

SUNCARE ATTITUDES THAT PROMOTE THE MOST SEDUCTIVE FORM OF PROTECTION: A TAN

  • Excessive sun exposure is dangerous, as is its absence
  • A tan is the most natural form of protection: skin protects itself as it tans
  • Sun-intolerant skin is not inevitable
  • Skin aging in the sun can be controlled
  • The sun protection factor (SPF) only provides information about sunburn; it is therefore an inadequate indicator.

The skin's biology in the sun

The sun-skin relationship is a question of adaptation. Just the right amount of sun is required to trigger a remarkable natural protective mechanism: tanning. Under the action of UV rays, melanin production accelerates and the upper epidermis thickens to absorb UVB rays. Tanning is therefore a protective mechanism against sunburn. Skin also possesses defense mechanisms – antioxidants, repairing agents – that protect cells from damage caused by UV rays. However, in the event of excessive sun exposure, the skin’s natural defenses become saturated and need to be optimized.

This is the role of the GLOBAL CELLULAR PROTECTION patent developed by Institut Esthederm research. This synergy of active ingredients limits cell damage, optimizes cell repair and maintains the skin’s youthfulness in the sun.
