Water-based, High-UVA Titanium Dioxide Dispersion for Natural UV Protection and Added Formulation Benefits
By: Alice Miles, Michael Hilditch, Robert M. Sayer…
A novel titanium dioxide (TiO2) showing enhanced UVA protection was previously found to be effective as the sole active ingredient in sun care formulations, achieving levels of UVA protection recommended by the European Commission. Here, a water-based dispersion of the same TiO2 particles is described that offers a high level of UVA protection in sun care products with excellent formulation flexibility.
