Airborne particulate matter (PM) pollution, especially particles with an aerodynamic diameter under 2.5 μm (fine particles, PM2.5) is recognized as a crucial risk factor in skin diseases as atopic dermatitis, impairment of skin immune defense, skin pigmentation and aging. Urban-Stop is an innovative active ingredient that actively protects skin from damages induced by over-polluted environments. Urban-stop forms a natural film barrier able to reduce the adhesion and accumulation of airborne particulate matter PM2.5 on the skin and protects skin against free radicals thanks to the extraordinary detoxifying properties of pulp extract obtained from Amazonian fruit Camu Camu (Myrciaria dubia) rich in vitamin C, ellagic acid, niacin, riboflavin, phosphorus, potassium, beta-carotene, calcium, and amino acids.
Urban-stop anti-pollution system is designed to:
- protect skin from damage caused by aging pollutants and environmental aggressors
- minimize the appearance of wrinkles and temporarily tighten skin
- promote, moisture, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities
- protect the skin from aggressive cleaners
