Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Lotion SPF 15

This sunscreen cream was designed to provide broad spectrum (SPF/PFA ≤3) performance. SolaStay® S1 is incorporated to rapidly and efficiently quench the excited states of Avobenzone, protecting it from photodegradation and so improving sunscreen performance. HallBrite® BHB contributes to UV filter solubility and enhanced product feel. This formulation was subjected to in vitro analysis and delivered SPF ~17, PFA (PPD) ~8 performance with critical wavelength 378 nm.
