Quench-and-Protect 35 – Broad Spectrum O-W SPF 35 Sunscreen

This oil-in-water formulation was designed to provide superior broad spectrum (SPF/PFA <<3) label SPF 30 performance. SolaStay® S1 (Ethylhexyl Methoxycrylene) in HallBrite® EZ-FLO TDX Plus contributes to photoprotection through stabilization of this titanium dioxide-based formulation by:

  • mitigating the photocatalytic and reactive oxygen species-generating activities of the oxide, and
  • providing very rapid and efficient excited state quenching of Avobenzone, protecting it from photodegradation,

thus improving sunscreen performance.
HallBrite® BHB (Butyloctyl Salicylate) in HallBrite® EZ-FLO TDX and in HallBrite® EZ-FLO TDX Plus contributes to UV filter solubility and enhances product feel.
This formulation was subjected to in vitro analysis and delivered SPF ~40 (30), PFA (PPD) ~17 performance with critical wavelength 380 nm.

1To a secondary vessel add phase A, start mixing, slowly add phase B, heat to 85°C and then add phase C items in order.
2When phase ABC is homogeneous add phase D items to it and continue mixing until dissolved.
3To the main vessel add phase E, start mixing and add phase F items in order.
4When solids of phase F are fully incorporated, heat phase EF to 80°C.
5When both phases are homogeneous and at their designated temperatures, slowly add phase ABCD to phase EF with prop mixing.
6After 2 minutes mixing, homogenize batch for 3 minutes and then resume prop mixing and start cooling batch.
7When batch is below 50°C add phase G ingredients one by one with mixing.
8Continue mixing until batch is at room temperature, replacing any water lost to evaporation and mixing until smooth.
