Application of liposomal phospholipids (Natipide II) caused a significant decrease in erythema induced by UVB (280-312 mm) in patients with skin types II and III (n=31). In accordance with findings in other organs, e.g. liver, the present findings suggest that phospholipids are capable of reducing H2O2 formation and/or increasing glutathione synthesis in human skin, thus reducing erythema formation by preventing oxidative stress.
