Sunscreen Cream SPF 50

HallBrite® ISO is incorporated to mitigate the photocatalytic and reactive oxygen species generating activities of oxides, protecting it from photodegradation, and so improve sunscreen performance. HallBrite® BHB aids wetting and dispersion of the Titanium Dioxide and enhanced product feel. This formulation was subjected to in vitro analysis and delivered SPF ~50, PFA (PPD) ~9 performance with critical wavelength 376 nm.
