In order to achieve complete protection against the cumulative detrimental effects from sun exposure, topical strategies must shield against the range of solar wavelengths that can damage the skin. Existing examples of infrared-protective active agents include mitochondrially targeted antioxidants.
Photoaging and skin damage that is caused by solar radiation is well known. IRA acts via the mitochondria and therefore protection from IR requires alternative strategies.
