An academic study of the pathway of UV-induced pigmentation may have created a safe tan for sunseekers. Scientists at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, have begun research and evaluation of the compound forskolin, which they believe darkens skin pigmentation successfully without the use of self-tanners and without sun exposure.

Impaired functioning of mitochondria is a very important factor in aging. Irradiation of normal human fibroblasts with UV was shown to increase the frequency of mutations in the mitochondrial DNA. Treatment of the fibroblast culture with a nanoemulsion containing coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E acetate was found to protect the mitochondrial DNA against UV-induced mutations.
