Broad Spectrum Oil-in-Water SPF 60 Sunscreen Cream

This Octocrylene- and Oxybenzone-free sunscreen cream makes use of highly efficient SolaStay® S1 for the photostabilization of Avobenzone. Olivem® 1000 and Oliwax® LC constitute the moisturizing emulsion base. This formula was subjected to in vitro analysis and delivered SPF ~60, PFA (PPD) ~19 performance with critical wavelength 377 nm. In vivo testing yielded results of SPF 68 (3 subjects) and PFA 23.8 (1 subject). In vivo testing data from a Korean lab are also available.
