An Orally Administered Prophylactic Against Sunburn and UV Skin Damage    

Orally administered phytochemical based formula for prevention of radiation damage to skin

Overview

The technology is an orally administered, natural plant-based formulation that migrates to the skin and other tissues, directly and indirectly stabilizes DNA, serves as an antioxidant, and partially absorbs particle energy, resulting in an elimination or reduction of radiation damage in animals.

The Problem Solved by the Technology

Non-ionizing radiation (ultraviolet particles with energy above 4.9 eV/250 nm, but below 10 eV) produces free radicals, reactive oxygen species, photoreactions in collagen, and direct and indirect DNA damage such as formation of thymine dimers, in the skin. Ionizing radiation (cosmic, alpha, beta, gamma, and x-ray particles with energy above 10 eV/124 nm) produces the same damage but can penetrate to interior tissues. Such damage is expressed as sunburn, tissue physical transformation, denaturation, aging and loss of flexibility, increased tissue fragility and leakage, tissue and organ dehydration, malformation and dysfunction, development of an array of cancers, up to and including death.

How the Technology Solves the Problem

The technology is orally administered, natural plant-based formulation that migrates to the skin and other tissues, directly and indirectly stabilizes DNA, serves as an antioxidant, and partially absorbs particle energy, resulting in an elimination or reduction of radiation damage in animals. It is a proprietary formulation of a set of phytochemicals based upon early Russian research into the prevention of direct damage from alpha and gamma radiation as well as damage from nuclear fallout. The formula has been optimized to enhance efficacy, bioavailability, and to cover injuries from broadband UV and ionizing radiation.

Primary Application of the Technology

Those persons exposed to the sun, UV A&B, outside enthusiasts, those persons exposed to gamma radiation, specifically:
• Protection from, prevention of sunburn, melanoma, other sun-related damage to skin.
• Prophylactic against radiation injury from nuclear fallout or contamination.
• Protection for flight crews from UVA, UVB, and cosmic radiation while in flight.
• Protection of lab, clinic, medical, or other workers routinely exposed to radiation.

Competitive Advantage

People, men in particular, do not like to apply creams and/or gels to the skin, which end up contaminating the hands and any equipment. Furthermore, all screens which protect from UVB, do not protect from UVA and indirectly increase damage from UVA. Furthermore, since this technology is internal, it cannot be washed off by water. Lastly, as long as this technology is consumed, the protection from the sun is infinite.

Notes on Development Status

The product is GRAS and has been field tested. It needs one final human test to be ready for market.
