Novel biopolymers to shield UV damage

When all the benefits from Glucose-Mannose Biopolymer (GMB) are combined with the use of sunscreen, the result is a holistic approach to ultimate sun protection. GMB improves communication between all protective skin cells. This innovative UV protection approach results therefore in a 3D-defence strategy

In the past, people were only exposed to the sun during their two-week vacation. However, today there is a steady increase in sun exposure because of global warming. 

Although some people love these tropical temperatures, being so much more exposed to UV radiation increases the occurrence of skin cancer dramatically. To put this in perspective, skin cancer is the most occurring type of cancer.

Despite the powerful protection of sunscreens, there are also downsides. First, sunscreens give a false sense of safety; people stay longer in the sun without reusing sunscreen. Secondly, sunscreens need to be sufficiently reapplied every two hours or if someone does an activity that readily removes the sunscreen, such as swimming.
