VITAMIN D DEFICICENCY
Dark-skinned people's high concentration of melanin makes it more difficult for them to produce enough vitamin D. In fact,dark pigment in the skin reduces the skin's ability to synthesize vitamin D from sunlight by 95% (2).

To compensate Vitamin D deficiency of the skin, DermEden has developed for the first time in cosmetics Daily Defense day creams enriched with "Vitamin D-like".

They recover barrier function further daily aggressions (UV, stress, pollution...), improve skin hydration (increase of filaggrine) and stimulate the Vitamin D receptor (VDR)*
RISK OF SKIN CANCER
Melanin has protected role against UV damage but doesn't prevent skin cancer. Even if vast majority of melanomas occur in fair-skinned people, skin cancer fatality rates are higher among black-skinned people than other ethnic groups,probably due to a later diagnosis and treatment(3).

UV index average in Caribbean: 10,3

UV index is an international standard measurement of the strength of UV radiation. From 8 it is very highly recommended to protect the skin.
