Jul i an Hewitt (+20 ye ars) wi ll di scuss how to optimize in practice UV fi l ters efficacy al ong wi th photostability, cost, rhe ol ogy, wate r-resistance...!

Why you should attend:


Select optimal UV filters (oi l /water-based; organic/ inorganic) to e nsure a complete UVB & UVA prote ction


Maximize UV filters efficacy usi ng the ri ght system of solvents, di spersants, photostabilisers, e mollients...


Opti mi ze water-resistance, rheology & film-forming performance of your formulations (O/W, W/O, spray...)


Who is it for?

• Sun care formul ators

• Acti ve & functi onal i ngredient suppl iers


1. Fundamental principles of Maximizing SPF efficacy a. Se l ect the right active i ngredients

b. Opti mi ze the even distribution of the acti ves i n the formul ation c. Opti mi ze the formulation di stribution on ski n

2. Selecting UV filter combinations for high SPF broad spectrum systems a. Syne rgi es between organic and i norganic fi lters
