This article provides a visual depiction of pathways that UV filters undergo when exposed to solar radiation; such pathways often lead to photo-instability. A fluorescence technique is described that has led the author to identify compounds that preserve photostability in a novel manner— by quenching the UV filter’s singlet excited state.

Photoinduced degradation and activity in chemical and mineral UV-absorbing actives results in a decrease in UVA protection during topical use, with a corresponding risk of skin pathologies in the user. New developments in UV absorbers are shown to maintain a stable, high level of UVA protection during use.
