Chitin nanofibrils (CN) are capable of interacting with cosmetic actives by binding to the stratum corneum, thus influencing their thermodynamic activity. Here, the authors test various sunscreen samples and determine that the addition of CN provides an interesting boost to the photoprotective activity of sunscreens.

"Halos" and "phyton" mean salt and plant in Greek respectively. A hallophyte is applied to all plants growing in salty soil, rich in sodium chloride and other salts. Halophytes are traditionally found by the sea shore and; therefore, have developed a salt-tolerant mechanism. In addition, they have developed the ability to resist other harsh environmental conditions.
