A protection for skin coming from the sea. It will be the coral raw material to form a special drug able to defend our epidermis by damage caused by the action of the deep sunlight, than UV-B, which causes rashes and burns And the much more formidable UV-A, Which can damage the structure of dermis, Opening to the formation of tumors. Good news for us all by British researchers at King’s College London, who carried out a targeted search using the coral reef of Australia, to test the property anti-ultraviolet rays.
According to reports the British newspaper Daily Mail, The scientists were at first collected samples of the coral during night dives, and then observed how these microorganisms (Remember that coral is a living creature) will “protect” from the harmful rays of the sun, thanks to a kind of compound algae.
According to the researchers, through test increasingly targeted, you can create a drug able to preserve our tan, but especially the health and integrity of our skin, already in five years.
“We have discovered that algae produce composed which we believe offers protection to the coral – explained one of the authors of the research, Paul Long – Not only have we seen that this compound protects the coral from the damage of UV rays, but also the fish that feed on corals benefit from this sunscreen.
We must make a lot of toxicology, but I imagine that within five years will be developed a sunscreen. “Only a doubt, to be profane, but if the protective effect comes from the algae, you need to touch the coral, or would not be the first to directly use the first to formulate a sunscreen?
