Why should you attend?

Most of your consumers are looking for low-cost high SPF sunscreens, which are easier and more pleasant to apply (light weight, non-sticky, non-greasy…). To meet these needs along with good UVA ratings, you need to optimize many different aspects of your broad spectrum sunscreen formulation. It's far more than just a question of UV filters selection & loading! Join this course and:

  1. Select optimal UV filters (oil/water-based; organic/ inorganic) to ensure a complete UVB & UVA protection

  2. Meet your high SPF targets while minimizing active levels (using the right system of solvents, dispersants, photo-stabilizers, emollients) to keep the cost low

  3. Achieve high efficacy with improved skin feel (free of stickiness, greasiness) by optimizing all aspects like water-resistance, rheology & film-forming performance…

Who should attend?

• Sun care product formulators

• Active & functional ingredient suppliers
