Background/purpose: Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation increases skin pigmentation and usually results in an even darkening of the skin. However, it may also occasionally lead to the development of hyperpigmented lesions due to a local overproduction of pigment. Skin pigmentation is induced both by UVB and UVA rays. 
Sunscreens containing the broad‐spectrum UVA absorber, Mexoryl® SX, prevent the cutaneous detrimental effects of UV exposure: a review of clinical study results
TLDR
UVA exposure of human skin mainly produces reactive oxygen species (ROS) leading to DNA, cell and tissue damage, and to provide adequate protection, sunscreens or skin care products for daily use protective products need UVA absorbers combined with UVB ones.
Need for a well-balanced sunscreen to protect human skin from both Ultraviolet A and Ultraviolet B damage.

TLDR
The calculation of UVA protection required in Asia revealed its particular importance in India, and gives clear evidence that the SPF value alone is not sufficient to evaluate the efficacy of a sunscreen.

Background  The increase in the incidence of non‐melanoma skin tumours, photoaging, and immunosuppression demand for more effective sunscreen on ultraviolet A (UVA) irradiation.
Sunscreen-Based Skin Protection Against Solar Insult: Molecular Mechanisms and Opportunities
Solar ultraviolet (UV) photons are established environmental carcinogens. Sunscreens are important solar photoprotectants and cancer chemopreventive molecular agents. The importance of efficient skin
Mexoryl: Broad-Spectrum Ultraviolet a Photoprotection
TLDR
Two organic UV filters, terephthlylidene dicamphor sulphonic acid and drometrizole trisiloxane (Mexoryl XL, L'Oréal), provide effective protection from UV irradiation and offer improved safety profiles in terms of protection from UVA radiation.
Mexoryl: A Review of an Ultraviolet A Filter
TLDR
Mexoryl, a novel ultraviolet A filter, provides efficient ultraviolet A coverage, better photostability, and enhanced water resistance, and Sunscreens containing Mexoryl are widely used in Europe and Canada.

Photoprotective effect of stilbenes and its derivatives against ultraviolet radiation-induced skin disorders
TLDR
The stilbenes and its derivatives protect and prevent UVR induced skin disorders via the reduction of oxidative stress, alleviation of DNA damage, inhibition of melanogenesis and anti photocarcinogenic effect.

Constitutive skin tone and sunscreen effects : UV-induced skin darkening in negroid skin
We planned and implemented two studies to establish: (1) whether any relationship existed between constitutive skin tone and sun-induced skin darkening in Negroid subjects, and (2) whether sunscreen
Effects of repeated suberythemal doses of UVA in human skin
TLDR
There is now considerable evidence that UVA radiation may contribute to the clinical changes commonly observed in photodamaged skin, including elastosis, which is a prominent histological feature of photoaged skin.
UVA protection efficacy of sunscreens can be determined by thepersistent pigment darkening (PPD) method
TLDR
The PPD in vivo has been proposed as an end point for the evaluation of UVA protection and it is shown that UVA‐induced Persistent Pigment Darkening in vivo increases the likelihood that the substance will be withdrawn from the blood stream following treatment with UVA.
Erythema and melanogenesis action spectra in heavily pigmented individuals as compared to fair‐skinned Caucasians
TLDR
Evidence is provided that erythema and melanogenesis have the same mechanism at short‐wavelength UVB (295 and 305 nm), and different mechanisms in UVA (365 nm) and the 24 h MED at 305 nm appears to be a sensitive indicator of skin type.
The acute effects of long-wave ultraviolet radiation on human skin.
TLDR
The erythematogenic and melanogenic properties of polychromatic long-wave ultraviolet light (UV-A) has been re-examined and it is shown that the acute effects of UV-A, unlike other wavelengths within the UV-spectrum, are immediate and appear without latency.
A comparison of the melanocyte response to narrow band UVA and UVB exposure in vivo.
TLDR
Although UVA and UVB induce different pigmentary responses, their effects on melanocyte number and function were indistinguishable.
A quantitative study of the melanogenic effect of multiple suberythemal doses of different ultraviolet radiation sources.
TLDR
If humans are exposed to equally suberythemogenic doses of different types of UV radiation, then radiation obtained from UVA sources greatly enhances melanogenesis, whereas UVB radiation sources are unable to induce pigmentation.
A New Approach to the Evaluation of Broad‐spectrum Sunscreens against Ultraviolet and Visible Light‐induced Delayed Tanning
TLDR
This study indicates that using PF against 24 h DT is more appropriate for an evaluation of broad‐spectrum sunscreens against UVA and visible light than IT.
ERYTHEMA AND MELANOGENESIS ACTION SPECTRA OF NORMAL HUMAN SKIN *
TLDR
The shape and magnitude of the action spectra are grossly consistent with a mechanism in which DNA is the primary chromophore initiating the response pathways for wavelengths less than 313 nm, which is of practical significance in predicting skin response to sources of ultraviolet radiation.
Skin colour typology and suntanning pathways
TLDR
This comprehensive study supplies a basic tool for the colorimetric interpretation of the skin phenomena involved, provided that this interpretation is always considered in the three dimensions of the colour space.
