Sunscreen Lotion SPF 15

This Oxybenzone-free sunscreen lotion formulation was designed to provide broad spectrum (SPF/PFA <3) SPF 15 sun protection. SolaStay® S1 and SolaStay® P1 provide very rapid and efficient excited state quenching of Avobenzone, protecting it from photodegradation and so improve sunscreen performance. Olivem® 1000 and Olivem® VS Feel deliver a stable emulsion while imparting sensorial and physiological benefits. HallBrite® BHB aids UV filter solubility and enhances product feel. Sensolene® is included for light emolliency and improved spreadability. This formulation was subjected to in vitro analysis and delivered SPF ~ 16, PFA(PPD) ~ 8, 5 Stars UVA/UVB (0.900 – 0.888) performance with critical wavelength 380 nm.
