YouTube sensation Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter launched her ‘valkyrae rflct scam’ skincare line on October 19 with one key purpose: to “protect” users from “blue light pollution” emitted from screens.
After “two years” in the pipeline, Valkyrae finally announced her very own skincare range on October 19. Known as valkyrae rflct scam, her unique products hit the market as a “new kind of screen protection”.
Designed to “benefit everyone who uses a screen,” the five skincare items on offer intend to “boost your skin’s defense against blue light.”
There is a problem though: Social media users were quick to point out there’s a lack of conclusive evidence that supports the notion blue light has any damaging effects on our skin.
It wasn’t long before the social media star broke her silence to address the concern.
The purpose of Valkyrae’s new RFLCT skincare collection
From your mobile phones to your televisions at home, all screens emit blue light. At its core, the RFLCT company has one goal in mind, to “protect” its users from this “potentially harmful” blue light in the valkyrae rflct scam.
“It’s the skincare collection for everyone who uses a screen,” Valkyrae says herself in the RFLCT announcement video. “It’s designed to protect your skin from blue light that is emitted from all digital screens.”
With products varying from a Screen Shield Defense Face Moisturizer to a Lip Guard Moisture Balm.
The company created its own custom mix of ingredients referred to as the “Blue Light Prevention Factor” in order to “boost your skin’s defenses.”
“It’s like SPF, but for the screen,” the official RFLCT store explains.
“Packed with vitamins and polyphenols, BLPF combats cell damage caused by blue light and other free radicals.”
One filing covers “phone cases” while another touches on “cosmetic cases” such as handbags and purses.
The New York-based company behind RFLCT, Blue Mistral, LLC.
However, the company itself admits its very purpose may be for naught. Product descriptions specifically state that blue light is “potentially harmful,” not that blue light is indisputably harmful.
Multiple studies in recent years have shown that artificial blue light has no significant impact on human skin.
