Oil-in-Water Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 45

This oil-in-water broad spectrum sunscreen cream contains mineral UV filters only. The SolaStay® S1 in HallBrite® EZ-FLO ZDX Plus mitigates the photocatalytic and reactive oxygen species generating activities of the oxides. In vivo testing of one person yielded static SPF 45.0 and PFA 12.0 in a US lab. The formulation was subjected to in vitro analysis and delivered SPF ~45, PFA (PPD) ~15 performance with critical wavelength 379 nm.
