🍯RAW HONEY - all-natural SUNSCREEN!☉ "...Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause a number of skin disorders such as erythema, edema, hyperpigmentation, immunosuppression, photoaging, and skin cancer..." Today there are many synthetic sunscreen agents available in the market. "...Chemical sunscreens are
generally organic aromatic compounds conjugated with carbonyl group (Rai, 2012). This chromosphere allows the molecule to absorb ultraviolet rays and release lower energy rays thereby preventing the skin from damaging effects of UVR (Rai, 2012). Typical example for chemical sunscreen includes oxybenzone, sulisobenzone, octyl methoxy cinnamate, etc. Chemical sunscreens are more cosmetic appeal since they are invisible on the skin surface (Rai, 2012). However, UV absorption may activate organic sunscreens and they may consequently interact with cutaneous molecules, causing adverse skin reactions. Some of chemical sunscreen namely aminobenzoic acid and its esters, cinnamates and oxybenzone can cause contact dermatitis or
photosensitivity reactions (Dromgoole and Maibach, 1990).Thus, the photoprotection from naturally occurring substances has
gained considerable attention in recent years due to their wide range of biological activities..."
