• With hypoallergenic UV care & base,
    it protects skin from UV rays and dryness,
    for clear, beautiful skin.

    Skin that's sensitive to irritants is also sensitive to UV rays. Even so, because some UV ray absorbents cause skin irritations, we tend to steer clear of applying sunscreen on sensitive skin.
    ACSEINE worked to develop a non-chemical type of sunscreen that didn't contain a UV ray absorbent, and in 1996 we released our first non-chemical sunscreen. And what is gaining attention now is even more serious than sun exposure – dryness caused by UV rays. We are pursuing advanced protective coat technology to pro-actively ward that off.

    All items with ACSEINE's UV base are a non-chemical type (UV ray absorbent free). They defend against the UV rays that exacerbate rough skin, atopy, and acne and also give foundation a beautiful finish.

UV rays cause a diminished barrier function and dryness.
  • The barrier function declines
    because of skin thickening

    When exposed to UV rays, in order to prevent the rays' penetration inside the skin the stratum corneum gets thicker, with dead skin cells staying behind to thicken the skin.
    The stratum corneum becomes filled with gaps, making it easier for irritants to work their way in.

    < Artificial skin model >
    Skin was irradiated four times with UV rays equivalent to half of the total amount of infrared rays required to make the skin red. This caused the stratum corneum to thicken and made skin rough.

  • With repeated exposure to tiny amounts,
    moisture decreased 30%

    Upon each exposure to UV rays, moisture evaporated from the gaps in the stratum corneum. 20 days later, when dullness became visibly apparent, the amount of moisture had decreased considerably.
