Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30

This formulation was designed to US use. HallBrite® ISO is incorporated to mitigate the photocatalytic and reactive oxygen species generating activities of Titanium Dioxide , protecting it from photodegradation, and so improve sunscreen performance. HallBrite® BHB aids wetting and dispersion of the Titanium Dioxide and contributes to UV filter solubility and enhanced product feel. This formulation was subjected to in vitro analysis and delivered SPF ~35, PFA (PPD) ~5 performance with critical wavelength 373 nm.
