DSM New UVB FilterRoyal DSM has announced the launch of PARSOL® EHT, a highly efficient, eco-friendly UVB filter that embodies the vision for DSM’s future-proof, eco-friendly portfolio. With an E1/1 peak of >1500 in the UVB range, PARSOL® EHT delivers the highest absorption in the market today and is compatible with other organic and inorganic UV filters, besides being photostable and inert.

These key benefits enable sun care formulators to achieve the desired SPF at low use concentrations and develop a broad range of the highest eco-class formulations (class A as per the DSM Sunscreen Optimizer™ 2.0).

High-performing Sustainable Product

With the launch of PARSOL® EHT, DSM is setting the pace to address current consumer and customer demands with on-trend, highly effective solutions. The UV filter scores high for both UVB absorbance and eco-friendliness, the latter evaluated based on the persistence, bioaccumulation and toxicity data in DSM’s Sunscreen Optimizer™ tool. In addition to the high functional profile, it is easy to formulate, photostable and compatible with top market UVA solutions, making it suitable for a full range of applications.

To illustrate the proficiency of this new product addition, DSM’s formulators have designed the ready-to-go Featherlight Cream SPF 50 guide formulation. Combining fast absorption and a silky touch with high protection into the blue light range, this formulation also comes with an eco-class A rating.

Michele Marchini, head of marketing Photoprotection, commented: “As a responsible, purpose-led company, we have an obligation to help consumers make informed, science-based decisions when it comes to their skin protection, as well as advance the search for new, more effective UV solutions. With the PARSOL® EHT launch we offer our customers a high-performing and sustainable product that will in turn allow them to deliver compelling products that consumers will enjoy applying regularly.”
