Oil-in-Water SPF 70 Sunscreen Lotion

This sunscreen lotion is Avobenzone-, Oxybenzone- and Octocrylene-free and uses SolaStay® S1 to mitigate the photocatalytic and reactive oxygen species generating activities of the oxide. It was subjected to in vitro analysis and delivered SPF ~ 60, PFA (PPD) ~ 8 performance with critical wavelength 379 nm. In vivo testing yielded results of SPF 72 (3 subjects) and PFA 10 (1 subject). In vivo testing data from a Korean lab are also available.
