Ahaglow Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 is a light weight daily sunscreen lotion used to prevent tanning, sun burn and premature ageing of the skin. It contains certain organic sunscreen molecules and zinc oxide as active ingredients that provides very high protection to the skin against UVA and UVB.
Organic sunscreen molecules share a common basic mechanism of action. They are raised to a state of higher state of energized orbital on absorption of photons from UV radiation. This energized state is highly unstable and is quickly converted to a more stable form by losing energy and attaining ground state which can again be recycled for UV rays’ absorption.
Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant that reduces UV damage to skin which helps to maintain skin health. Zinc oxide acts as a physical sunscreen agent and is one of the important ingredients in sunblock (blocks both UVA and UVB rays and uses a heavy carrier oil to resist being washed off).
