TOP-SELLING UK BRAND, DR ORGANIC, NOW HAS AN ACTIVATED CHARCOAL RANGE THAT HELPS TO FIGHT SKIN DAMAGE FROM URBAN POLLUTION.
The skin is regularly exposed to a range of air pollutants and environmental elements. Although human skin acts as a biological shield against these harmful compounds, a prolonged or repetitive exposure to high levels of these pollutants may contribute to negative effects on the skin.
Skin exposure to air pollutants has been associated with skin aging and inflammatory or allergic skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis or acne, while skin cancer is among the most serious effects.
Dr Organic’s Activated Charcoal range helps to eliminate dirt, oil, and impurities from the body while combating the side-effects of urban stress and pollution.
Using activated charcoal produced from Oak Trees grown in sustainable and regulated forests, and a proprietary blend of organic and bioactive extracts including aloe vera juice, cucumber, and cinnamon, the range is ideal for those with oily and blemish-prone skin.
The most common forms of air pollutants in urban society today include:
1.Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)
PAHs are among the most widespread organic pollutants. Long term-exposed skin to PAHs either through the hair or skin may lead to oxidative stress, pigmentation and skin ageing. PAHs have also been implicated in the development of skin cancer.
Main sources: Residual wood burning, car exhaust fumes, and smoke.
2.Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
VOCs, with the presence of sunlight and nitrogen oxides, cause the formation of photochemical oxidant products -mainly ozone (O3) – at ground level, also called Summer photochemical smog.
Main sources: Organic solvents in paints, varnishes, vehicle refinishing products, tobacco smoke, stored fuels, car exhaust and emissions from industrial facilities.
Oxides have been associated with increased prevalence of atopic dermatitis as well as exacerbations of the disease in children.
Main sources: Nitrogen oxides are emitted mainly from mobile and stationary combustion sources. Sulphur dioxide can be formed from both industrial processes and natural sources such as volcanic activity and forest fires.
4.Particulate Matter (PM)
Air pollutants, consisting of complex and varying mixtures of different size and composition particles suspended in the air are called PM. Exposure to PM contributes to external signs of skin aging (wrinkles, pigmented macules or spots).
Main sources: Factories, power plants, refuse incinerators, automobile, construction activities, fires and natural windblown dust are some of the main sources of PM.
Exposure to O3 has been associated with urticaria, eczema, contact dermatitis, and other nonspecific eruptions.
Main sources: Ozone may be formed as a by-product of various everyday activities combined with the interaction of sunlight (UVR), hydrocarbons, VOCs and nitric oxides, representing a major active component of the pro-oxidant smog.
The combination of smoking and sun exposure may combine to negatively influence skin aging. Cigarette smoking has been associated with skin aging (wrinkles, skin dryness, skin dyschromia), skin cancer (SCC, BCC), psoriasis and acne vulgaris.
By world standards, Australia has very clean air. However, according to the Department of the Environment and Energy, levels of some pollutants, including ground-level ozone and particulate matter, can still exceed current air quality standards.
