Natural Sunscreen that Mimic Melanin Cells

An ultimate ''natural'' sunscreen has been developed by UC San Diego''s material scientists, chemists and nanoengineers. The nanoparticles used in the sunscreen mimic the naturally occurring melanosomes or the melanin producing cells, that protect the cells of the body from damage that can be caused due to the sun''s UV rays. The study that holds promise in protection against the UV rays was published in the journal ACS Central Science.
