What is Scalp and Hair Sunscreen?
Zenon Life’s Scalp and Hair Sunscreen SPF 40 is designed to provide skin and scalp protection from the sun’s harsh UV radiation. Studies have shown that UV radiation can accelerate skin aging and hair thinning, not to mention the potential risk of skin cancer. This formula utilizes powerful active ingredients and is designed to be non-greasy and long lasting, able to provide a full day's worth of protection for your scalp and hair. By replenishing hair with essential amino acids and antioxidants, the scalp sunscreen not only protects but also makes a visible difference in the health and vitality of your hair.
How Does Silicon Deeply Nourish Hair?
Zenon Life’s proprietary formula is engineered with silicone-based combined with amino acids and antioxidants. The combination helps to nourish hair deep within the scalp and strengthen the hair shaft. Silicon-based compounds like dimethicone coat the outside of the hair shaft, creating an invisible barrier that strengthens and seals the hair cuticles, making them less vulnerable to physical damage and also helping to lock in necessary moisture. The restorative amino acids within the silicone aim to repair hair with every application, helping to soften and add shine to the hair while providing all-day hydration. Finally, the addition of antioxidants works to protect the scalp from oxidative stress and prevent fading of natural hair color.
Which Ingredients Help Protect & Prevent Scalp Damage?
Zenon Life’s proprietary formula is fortified with skin-safe, natural UV absorbers. The sunscreen contains homosalate, octocrylene, octisalate, and avobenzone, all of which work together to protect skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Homosalate is a realized UVB absorber, meaning that when applied to skin, it acts as an effective barrier against UVB rays, offering up to 95% sunburn protection. Octocrylene and octisalate act as UVA protectants, able to absorb and scatter UVA rays before they reach the skin. Avobenzone is a UVA absorber, allowing for up to 98% UVA and UVB protection. While no sunscreen can block all UV rays, this powerful combination offers an effective barrier between skin and the sun’s harmful rays.
What Benefits Does Collagen & Silk Amino Acids Provide?
Zenon Life’s propriety formula utilizes collagen and silk amino acids to strengthen hair strands and add lift to your style. Collagen is the main structural protein found in the body’s connective tissues which works to support healthy skin, hair, and nails - three important components in overall scalp health. Collagen helps to make hair more resilient and give it an extra boost of volume. Silk amino acids are derived from pure silk, offering up a lightweight and non-greasy feeling on the scalp. This ingredient helps hair strands to resist breakage, becoming stronger with every use. The combination of these two proteins helps to make Zenon Life’s scalp sunscreen the perfect choice for anyone looking to add volume and lift to their hair while still protecting it from sun damage.
Is Scalp Sunscreen Safe & Effective?
Zenon Life's scalp sunscreen is formulated with safe and effective active ingredients. All of the UV active ingredients used are FDA-approved and considered safe when used as directed. However, all sunscreen can cause skin reactions in rare cases, and it is important to patch test any new product before applying it to the entire scalp. The scalp sunscreen is effective at preventing sunburn and skin cancer, as well as providing nourishment and lift to hair - forming the perfect trifecta of scalp protection for anyone looking to give their locks a boost of health and vitality.
