The company additionally addressed the essentials of sun care such as reaching the targeted SPF and solutions for aesthetically pleasing water-resistant sunscreens.
Key products featured included:
- Assure+: A natural UVA and UVB booster that when used in mineral-only or hybrid sunscreen formulations, is said to increase SPF and UVA-PF values, maintaining appropriate ratios and critical wavelengths to help meet UVA global requirements.
- Zano range: Three base products to deliver UVA and transparency levels. Products are available as coated and uncoated powders, and as Xperse dispersions with some in combination with TiO2.
- CosmoSurf: These film-forming polymers reportedly provide up to 80 min of water resistance in emulsions and (alcohol-based) spray products. Additionally, the range offers pigment dispersion and does not appear white upon application to wet skin.
