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.

Vitamin D is critical to human health and the best source is from natural UVB light. However, contrary to the benefits gained are the well-documented damaging effects of sun exposure. In response, described here as a complementary approach to sun care is the development of an accurate gauge of UV exposure to produce optimum levels of vitamin D before sunburn results.

This article reviews the mechanisms of ultraviolet radiation insult to skin and explains the formulation of sunscreens to protect against this damage. Further, since the efficacy of combinations of UV filters will vary with formulation base, the formula vehicle and form are discussed, as well as an overview given of typical sunscreen efficacy tests performed prior to production.
