Our skin gets darkened, damaged or causes various aesthetic problems like wrinkles, freckles and chloasma, owing to the oxidative stress (i.e. generation of free radicals and reactive oxygen species) induced by ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Occasionally, these UV-induced damages may even lead to the development of melanoma (i.e. a type of skin cancer). This invention could reduce the oxidative stress.
