A photostable broad-spectrum UVB and UVA filter effective at low concentrations

PARSOL® Shield (INCI: Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine) is a photostable broad-spectrum filter which efficiently contributes to UVB and UVA protection across the full range of application forms at low concentrations. PARSOL® Shield demonstrates excellent compatibility with both organic and inorganic UV filters and is readily compatible with other PARSOL® UV filters.

As part of a holistic formulation the UV filter supports high levels of water resistance due to its good solubility in organic oils. And it goes without saying that this latest addition to the PARSOL® portfolio meets the highest standards for safety and quality. This very efficient UV filter is now available for the first time from DSM – a Sun Care player that is investing ambitiously in new technologies and is proud to back its products with an incomparable range of established customer support services.
