Ryzen 7 2700u working at 100% temps of 100

I just purchased an HP 15 inch laptop with a Ryzen 7 2700u and was rendering a video using Davinci Resolve which uses CPU mainly for rendering. 

I noticed it uses 100% of the CPU and the temps went to 103 celcius. The video was supposed to take 1hr to render since it was a big project, but I am a little worried that keeping the temps at above or at 100 will actually damage the CPU or laptop. 

The main reason I bought this laptop was to do video editing since the Vega 10 and the Ryzen 7 ares supposedly really good compared to intel, but I now see that I may cause some damage if used for this purpose due to temps and taxing the cpu so much for extended periods. 


Is this something I should be even worrying about for longevity of the laptop? or is it ok to keep temps and CPU usage at 100% for a few minutes at a time and what would be a reasonable amount of time safe to run at max capacity?


Thanks in advance.
