Regulatory bodies require quantifiable, photostable UVA protection for sunscreens and while zinc oxide provides an effective option, historically, its white appearance on skin has limited its acceptance. Therefore, in the present article the authors explore a micron-sized zinc oxide dispersion technology to enable the formulation of transparent yet full spectrum sunscreen formulas.

The faster a photostabilizer works, the fewer opportunities for destructive chemical reactions. Here, the author describes a new photostabilizer, ethylhexyl methoxycrylene, which acts by quenching the singlet excited state of UV filters. The data shows how this material sets a new standard for the photostabilization of avobenzone, even in the presence of octyl methoxycinnamate.
