Sun Protection Trends

May 18, 2010

There are two growing trends in sun protection formulations.  The first is to include multifunction ingredients that offer additional benefits  to the client, such as antioxidants and anti-aging botanicals.    The second is to improve the aesthetics of the product, making it pleasant enough that the client will use it on a daily basis.

New formulations are lighter weight and more easily absorbed.  Case in point:  Epionce’s Active Shield SPF 30 and Ultimate Shield SPF 50 include higher percentages of cosmetically-elegant zinc oxide (9.2% and 10.1% respectively) as well as antioxidants and botanical acids and extracts.  Both are most appropriate for normal to dry skin types and are rapidly absorbed.
