BASF has revised the Sunscreen Simulator, the digital lab for sun care formulations, to make it more user-friendly and versatile.
The Internet-based solution, which enables formulators to explore the performance of sunscreens under development before starting costlyin vitroandin vivo studies, now features immediate dynamic calculations and side-by-side comparison of multiple formulations, among other enhancements. BASF’s Sunscreen Simulator supports sunscreen manufacturers all over the world in reducing their products’ time to market.
The Sunscreen Simulator is now responsive to all screen sizes, making it easy to use on smartphones and tablets as well as desktop computers. Users can customise their simulator platforms according to individual needs by adjusting parameters such as sun protection factor (SPF) and Ultraviolet A (UVA) metrics, region and application amount. Favourites and projects are easy to save for future reference and data can be exported in PDF or Excel format.
