Fourteen natural polyphenols belonging to the classes of stilbenes, flavonoids and hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives, have been investigated in order to verify the combination of their photoprotective characteristics with their antioxidant properties. To this purpose, sun protection factor (SPF), UVA/UVB ratio and critical wavelengths (λc), have been considered to evaluate photoprotection capacity, while inhibition of lipid peroxidation has been adopted as a reliable measure of the antioxidant… CONTINUE READING
