High energy visible (HEV) light recently has been suspected of causing as much damage as UVA and UVB combined. Thus, the present paper describes a fractionated melanin tailored to absorb light in the visibile 400–500 nm range. In addition, because the material exhibits color, the authors focus on formulation techniques to incorporate it into semi-solid formulations.

This study examines the photostability of retinol and retinyl palmitate, finding they break down rapidly when exposed to UV radiation in the 290–400 nm range. This severely reduces their concentrations in finished formulations. However, when combined with ethylhexyl methoxycrylene, these retinoids are shown to be protected against photodegradation, thus preserving their concentrations both during the manufacturing process and following application to the skin.
