A novel natural photo-protective agent with skin rejuvenating properties

Dr. Cohen and Dr Adar have isolated a novel colorless sun blocker compound. The compound, SH-401, is purified from Rhus coriaria (commonly called Sicilian sumac), an edible plant that is used as a spice. Importantly, SH-40 was shown to block UVA & UVB (including DNA damage) and rejuvenate the skin ECM. This technology addresses a $400M market (natural sunscreens).
