Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9933439A1] A topical antioxidant composition for the protection of skin from damage caused by ultraviolet radiation. The composition includes a first component (such as beta glucan or grape seed extract) that increases cellular viability of epidermal cells, and a second component that decreases the production of inflammatory mediators, such as prostaglandins, in those cells. In a particular embodiment, the composition includes beta glucan in combination with panthenol, grape seed extract, vitamin C and superoxide dismutase, which exhibit a synergistic effect in protecting the skin from the adverse effects of ultraviolet radiation. In another embodiment, the composition further includes Vitamin A and Vitamin E. In a further embodiment, the composition includes a combination of one or more antioxidants and sunscreen agents in an emulsion, such as water-in-oil (W/O) emulsion, which provides superior protection of the skin against the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. The antioxidant compositions are incorporated into sunscreen products, soap, moisturizing lotions, skin toners, and other skin care products.
