For over 15 years Cometech has been a distributor of important companies producing raw materials and a trusted partner of the main Italian cosmetic companies. In addition to maintaining and giving continuity to the trade in chemical products, Cometech intends primarily to develop a cooperative activity with its customers. Establish relationships of mutual exchange of information, carry out fruitful collaborations and thus become an important point of reference. Thanks to a small but well-equipped laboratory, Cometech is able to provide its customers with valid technical and formative support.

The aim of the thesis work was to study the potential of the use of Magnesium Oxide as an inorganic filter in formulations for solar products. In a first phase, the MgO sample was structurally and morphologically characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and electronic scanning microscopy (SEM). Subsequently, the filtering power of MgO was verified in synergy with other organic and inorganic filters, in order to obtain cosmetic formulations in the form of an anhydrous sticks that could satisfy the market requirements so generally high SPF, absence of “white effect” and good touch on the skin.
