AvoBrite®

INCI Name: Acrylates Copolymer
Product Code: AV10
Patents: US20160256371 A1
Brand: AvoBrite®

AvoBrite® is a faster excited state quencher than Octocrylene while also providing for multi-benefit claims in sun protection formulations, like film forming properties. As a polymer, it may enhance the water resistance of products in which it is incorporated. Its typical use level is 5 – 6%.

AvoBrite® has been clinically proven to protect Avobenzone from degrading upon sun exposure and releasing damaging free radicals. With AvoBrite®, sun care products can safely maximize the strong UV absorption powers of Avobenzone and enter lucrative new markets.

AvoBrite®: the cost effective, China-compliant solution for stabilizing Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (Avobenzone), for safer high SPF (50+) protection with smooth texture and cost-effective PA++++ performance.
