BB Cream With SPF 40 Sun Protection
This BB cream formulation was designed to provide superior broad-spectrum (SPF/PFA <3) label SPF 40 performance. SolaStay® S1 provides very rapid and efficient excited-state quenching of Avobenzone and mitigates the photocatalytic and reactive oxygen species-generating activities of the oxides to improve sunscreen performance. HallBrite® BHB, Sensolene® and HallTress® DIBA Special contribute to UV filter solubility and enhance product feel. Eurol® BT contributes anti-aging, skin elasticizing, anti-oxidant and moisturizing properties. This formulation was subjected to in vitro analysis and delivered SPF ~45 , PFA (PPD) ~21 performance with critical wavelength 382 nm.
