2022 Skincare Trend: Blue Light Protection

Since the beginning of the pandemic, people’s routines have changed and will never be the same again. A lot of people don’t work in offices anymore, forced or intentionally. This makes the use of electronics such as TVs, computers, and smartphones increase. To avoid the dangers of blue light radiation for the skin, people need protection.

This article will discuss the negative impact of using electronics on facial skin and how it has led to high demand for blue light protection. How you, as a Smartpreneur should take this opportunity to develop and market skincare products to protect the skin against the blue light.

Blue Light Effect on Skin

Blue light sources are found in sunlight and electronic devices including LED lights. Blue light is included in the High Energy Visible (HEV) category with a wavelength range of 400-500 nm. Meanwhile, electronic devices such as smartphones contain blue light with a range between 400-490 nm.

When a person is exposed to blue light continuously, with a range between 415 to 450 nm, the impact can be very harmful to vision and skin. The skin will experience signs of premature aging such as wrinkles, freckles, hyperpigmentation.

Market Forecast

The use of electronic devices is increasing not only because of the work from home policy but also because of entertainment. Many people choose to spend their spare time watching online streaming services.

Even so, health concerns during pandemic are increasing. So that people will look for ways to use electronic devices without the fear of the negative effects. One way is to use blue light protection, such as anti-blue light skincare.

The high screen time combined with awareness of blue light have pushed up the demand for anti-blue light skincare in the market. Blue light protection in skincare is predicted to experience an annual increase of 8.3% CAGR over the period 2022 to 2030. 


The Most Potential Type of Blue Light Protection

Blue light protection on the market is led by creams and moisturizers, including sunscreen. That’s because the use of creams and moisturizers is applied at the last stage of routine skincare and the mechanism is almost similar to sunscreen.

But not only that, there have been many new breakthrough serums with claims to protect skin from blue light. The ingredients that are believed to support these claims are ceramide, niacinamide, and vitamin E.
