Innovation in Clean, Safe and Effective Sunscreen Products

In beauty brands’ pursuit of cleaner, more sustainable ingredients, sun care presents a unique challenge: how to balance green objectives with the demand for sun protection efficacy, safety, and skin feel.

Hallstar Beauty approaches clean sun care formulating by focusing on greenifying the whole package — biomimetic natural emulsifiers, emollients and skin care actives — as well using photostabilization principles that optimize energy transfer and efficiently disperse mineral and organic UV filters to improve sun protection efficacy.

Two recent natural product launches expertly demonstrate this approach and are perfect fits for clean sun care formulating.

  • SolaPure™ Glo [INCI: Vegetable Oil, SimmondsiaChinensis (Jojoba)]
    is inspired and guided by nature – and more specifically by the inherent culinary, beauty and wellness benefits of turmeric. The curcuminoids found in turmeric plants boast anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-microbial properties, and have even been known to reduce the ROS production that leads to oxidative skin damage.
  • Olivem® 2090 [Polyglyceryl-4 Olivate/Polyricinoleate]
    is a natural-derived, cold-process, W/O emulsifier offering high performance, sensorial and hydration benefits. This unique single molecule (which enables a clean, short INCI name) contributes the emulsifying properties of polyricinoleic acids’ polyclycerol esters and the skin benefits of olive oil fatty acids. It enables high stability by creating a homogeneous layer around water droplets.
