UV filters

Mineral fusion for broad protection

PARSOL® ZX (INCI: Zinc Oxide, Triethoxycaprilylsilane) is an inorganic UV filter with a broad UVA‐UVB absorption curve that also goes into the blue light spectrum. With its balanced blend of nano and non-nano particles, PARSOL®ZX offers great SPF, UVA and blue light protection, and good transparency
against tested benchmarks. It also maintains low viscosity when tested in different emollients, meaning high use levels are possible without compromising on dispersibility. Inorganic UV filters like our PARSOL® ZX and PARSOL® TX are the essential ingredients for today’s consumer desire for natural sunscreens.
