It’s finally here. “Sunblock” for your smartphone and laptop.
The Blue Light Protection Mask protects your skin like a shielding mask against the HEV light from all your digital devices like your smartphone and laptop. It is the perfect replacement for your day cream.
The Blue Light Protection Mask is specially made for people that spend a lot of time behind a computer screen, laptop, or smartphone. It prevents premature skin-aging caused by HEV-light. The Blue Light Protection Mask does NOT protect your skin from harmful UV-rays from the sun.
Our new enemy, High Energy Visible (HEV) Light.
High Energy Visible Light (HEV Light) – also known as Blue Light – is less known, than for instance, UV-light. HEV light is also coming from the sun, but it’s also emitted by your smartphone, tablet, television, and computer screen.
What is Blue Light or High Energy Visible (HEV) Light?
To understand what Blue Light or HEV light exactly is we will start by explaining what the wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum are.
Blue Light is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which is not very well known as for instance UV-rays or X-Rays.
The full electromagnetic spectrum looks like this:
1) Gamma rays – Gamma rays are used in medicine and/ or radiotherapy, for sterilization and disinfection and in the nuclear industry.
2) X-rays – Ever broke something in your body?
3) Ultraviolet (UV) rays – Most famous UV-rays are from the Sun
4) Visible light – Any light which is visible, from Laser till TV-light, Blue Light (or High Energy Visible Light)
5) Infrared light – Think of an infrared sauna for relaxations of muscles.
6) Radio waves – Ever listened to the radio?
Blue Light is made up of electromagnetic particles that travel in waves. These waves emit energy and range in length and strength. The shorter the wavelength; the higher the energy. The length of the waves is measured in nanometers (nm), with 1 nanometer equaling 1 billionth of a meter. Every wavelength is represented by a different color, and is grouped into the following categories:
Visible light is that part of the electromagnetic spectrum that is seen as colors: violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. Blue light has a very short wavelength, and so produces a higher amount of energy. That’s why a part of Blue Light is named High Energy Visible Light better known as HEV-Light.
Does HEV Light cause skin damage?
There is a lot of research still to be done, so let’s ONLY sum up the facts: HEV light reaches the hypodermis and makes it potentially more damaging to the skin than ultraviolet rays! HEV light exposure can lead to dry and sensitive skin, which speeds up the process of skin aging.
So the fact is that HEV light penetrates deeper into the skin. But we have to be very careful with false claims. It does NOT mean that because HEV light penetrates deeper into the skin, it’s more dangerous!
Difference between HEV light and Infrared light.
If you look at infrared light, it penetrates even deeper into the skin and reaches the joints, BUT it’s not proven infrared is bad for the skin if you are exposed less than 1 hour a day. However, with HEV light we are sometimes exposed up to 10 hours a day. Big difference!
Difference HEV light from digital devices and UV light from the sun.
Most people are all aware of the dangers of ultraviolet rays from the sun. For example, UVA rays cause aging, and UVB contribute to burning. This ranges from 100 to 400 nanometers. HEV light penetrates from 380 to 500 nanometers. To be exact; Blue/violet HEV light ranges from 380 to 450 nanometers and blue/turquoise HEV light ranging from 450 to 500 nanometers.
Recent research has indicated that HEV light generates similar amounts of reactive oxygen species, as UVA and UVB rays combined.
Dedicated research and science about HEV light started since 2006. Compare this to research on UV-light. UV-light is discovered 220 years ago. Just 40 years ago researchers have discovered that UV-light from the sun is causing skin aging.
Since 2018 we have worked with different R&D laboratories around the world to come with a formula to block HEV Light. At this moment it’s impossible to fully block HEV Light. However, we did find a rather easy formula that blocks HEV Light up to 94% from digital devices like a smartphone and laptop. The more distance you keep from your digital device, the better it works. We would advise keeping at least 23 inches / 60 cm distance from your digital devices.
At MUDMASKY we don’t like “secret formulas”, because we are open and like to share with the world, which ingredients help to shield against HEV light.
The main ingredient which protects against HEV Light is Carnosine. It boosts your skin’s natural defense against daylight and radiations. Carnosine has powerful antioxidant properties that stimulate collagen synthesis. Furthermore, it protects against free radicals, firms, and smooths the skin.
The combination of different ingredients is the “secret” formula, which we LOVE to reveal:
Vitamin E Acetate or Tocopheryl Acetate is a strong antioxidant (free radical scavenger). It helps to protect cell components from premature changes and supports the formation of new cells. Vitamin E Acetate also has UVprotecting and inflammation-reducing properties.
Reduces inflammation for the preventive care of normal, sensitive and dry skin.
Moroccan Lava Clay
A natural mineral clay mined from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. It is an extraordinary mineral-rich clay that helps in the treatment of dehydrated, sensitive skin, and enlarged pores. It also helps build and strengthen the elasticity of the skin.
