Sounds numpty, but could be genius. It's the UV that fades ano and sunblock blocks UV.

Could get a bit boring reapplying it every 30 minutes or so though.

It's the Dye used to colour the anodic film. The fancy colour ones are usually organic. Not sure about CK stuff but try gold, the dye we have for gold contains a metal that gives it it's colour so won't fade.
