Light and Nongreasy SPF 30 Sunscreen Cream

This light and non-greasy sunscreen cream, free from Octinoxate, Oxybenzone, ethanol and volatile silicones, applies to wet skin without whitening. Multifunctional cold-process Olivem® 2020 is the only emulsifier used. HallBrite® BHB provides sunscreen solvency and emolliency. In vitro testing suggested SPF ~32, PFA (PPD) ~12 performance with critical wavelength = 378 nm. In vivo testing (5 subjects) yielded static SPF 39 in a US laboratory, with 80 minute water resistant SPF 38.
