HappySun showcase during 2nd Anti-Aging Sun Protection Summit in Prague
SiHealth CEO Emilio Simeone speech on the role of technology and HappySun solution
The demographic trends and the growing interest for better appearance and prevention are driving the development of the anti-aging and sun-care market. Its global value is expected to reach 216,5 USD billion in 2021 (it was about 140 billion in 2015). Sun protection alone is forecasted 11.1 billion by 2020.
During the Anti-Aging Sun Protection Summit, held in Prague – 14 and 15 May 2018, the new trends and scientific innovations on skin care and sun protection were discussed by several panels of dermatologists, cosmetologists, anti-ageing experts …
Most of the new formulation have moved beyond basic UV protection and offer added benefits i.e. counter balance the effects of pollution and slow skin-ageing.
Innovation is not restricted to formulations and substances. New technologies can improve skin care and sun protection as well. Wearables and digital health tools are core drivers of the evolution in healthcare and Emilio Simeone’s talk on “The role of Digital System Solar Photoprotection” earned a very good interest.
Our team was involved in several discussions and knowledge sharing with R&D attendants and the overall approach of the HappySun solution was greatly appreciated for its technical robustness and holistic mode as well.
Digital therapeutics form an independent category of evidence-based products within the broader digital health landscape, and are distinct from pure-play adherence, diagnostic, and telehealth products.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a relatively young therapeutic modality that holds much promise for the treatment of illnesses characterized by the excessive proliferation of either host cells (i.e. neoplasms) or pathogens.
Vitamin D is important for bone and muscle health, hers deficiency can cause serious complications such as osteomalacia, rickets, hypo-calcaemic seizures and cardiac problems.
The data collected data showed that increasing solar UV radiation exposures reduces the effectiveness of folic acid supplementation by as much as 20%.
Sun exposure can be useful during pregnancy, but you need to remember that your skin becomes more sensitive and to deserve some additional care to it.
