Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a chronic inflammation of the skin. It affects infants and children, and the adult population to a lesser degree (1-3%). It is produced by an irregular immune system and deficiencies in the skin barrier. The main symptoms are itching, redness and inflammation of the skin.
Having atopic skin leads to a higher chance of developing infections (Staphylococcus aureus) and infections aggravate symptoms and scratching increases the chance of infections.
Exposure to the sun can be positive by participating in the synthesis of Vitamin D which will participate in the regulation of the immune system, but on the other hand it can be harmful since most patients are photosensitive, the sun will aggravate facial lesions and increase pigmentation of scars.
According to the recommendations of the National Eczema Association for these patients, mineral sunscreens should be used, which do not exceed SPF30, without alcohol and without allergens.
With ADPCosmetics you will have no problems formulating this type of sunscreen thanks to our broad spectrum mineral filters, covering the UVB and UVA range. They create a protective barrier above the skin without interacting with it, thus reducing the likelihood of allergens or skin sensitivity.
