The most important skin-care products available for the prevention of wrinkles and skin damage are sunscreens. Our range of sunscreens provides the ingredients needed to meet the exacting demands of the personal care market.

Exposure to damaging ultraviolet light from the sun's rays, UV-A or UV-B, accounts for 90% of the symptoms of premature skin ageing such as wrinkles and skin cancers. UV-A radiation (320-400nm) is linked with the loss of skin elasticity, wrinkling and premature ageing, whilst the more powerful UV-B radiation (290-320nm) is linked to sunburn, cell damage and cancer risk.

Our challenge is to keep skin protected from UV-induced damage and excessive dryness during sun exposure.

Etone - Effective UV-B filter for skincare formulations.

Used in the preparation of sun creams, oils, lotions, lipsticks, etc., Etone is a highly effective UV-B absorber, only small concentrations are necessary to achieve high SPF products. Excellent wash-off resistance for sun creams due to molecule's polar nature, forming affinity with the keratin in skin, it is also insoluble in water. Very high stability even to intense UV-exposure. Approved for use in Japan and the EU.
