The production of a range of titanium dioxide-based dispersions is explored to provide enhanced UVA protection, in comparison with ultrafine titanium dioxide. Formulations containing these dispersions as the only active are shown to achieve a UVA protection factor that is 1/3 of the labeled SPF value, thus meeting European Commission recommendations.

Tony O’Lenick asks industry expert Dennis Lott of Florida Suncare Testing Inc. to distinguish between UVA and UVB radiation to explain how organic UV filters can be formulated into sunscreens to help protect against these rays.

Kalichem Italia S.r.l. has introduced a physical sunscreen that imparts a soft focus antiaging effect without a white appearance on skin. The material is based on hydroxyapatite, one of the basic constituents of bones and teeth.

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.

The skin innately possesses metabolic pathways and receptors to protect against external assaults. Here, one protective component, 7-dehydrocholesterol or provitamin D, naturally present in the skin, is described, which serves as the precursor for active metabolites that influence the formation and maintenance of barrier function, the activation of antimicrobial peptides, photoprotective activities, and protection against senescence.

The UV filter is based on hydroxyphenyltriazine chemistry for UVA and UVB protection in beach and daily wear products.
