Sun care formulation development is a fine balance between SPF efficacy, formulation stability, and product aesthetics. There is increasing demand for natural (i.e. mineral), “non-nano”, transparent, lightweight, yet high SPF formulations, which is a challenge for any formulator.

All sun care formulations must be stable (shelf-stable and photostable), meet SPF and UVAPF protection regulations to achieve the desired claims, and have a sensory profile that allows for consumer acceptance and everyday wear.

With all these requirements it can be very challenging to formulate sun care, in fact it is known to be one of the most difficult areas of cosmetic formulation development, especially when formulating natural sun care with Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. So, to help you in your sun care developments, we will discuss sun care formulation development mistakes and how to overcome them.
