PARSOL®: Forty years of experience in production of UV filters
UV filters are well known to be difficult to integrate into cosmetic products, but a precise knowledge of their properties and profiles makes us uniquely expert in their selection and blending. We design and synthesize all the molecules for our UV filters with critical aspects of cosmetic formulation and applications in mind.
Added to this we have the capacity to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of filters within regulatory boundary conditions, plus the competence to measure SPF in vitro and in vivo and satisfy local regulatory requirements in the EU, Japan and the USA. Our in-vivo studies are designed in-house, although we outsource the actual testing for UV efficacy and skin tolerance.
Recent studies revealed a consumer demand for improved sensory profiles of sun care formulations. We believe this represents the biggest market opportunity to increase consumer sunscreen acceptance, and developing appropriate sensory modifiers is therefore a major focus of our formulation and applications team.
