This is achieved through the biphasal distribution of actives with their efficiency improved through the use of CrodafosTM MCK and SolPerFormTM 100. Crodamol™ SFX provides the formulation with a premium skin feel whilst aiding the solubilisation of the organic filters. This versatile formulation can be easily adapted to achieve different viscosities through altering the level of ViscOptimaTM SE.
