Sun care brands are looking for performance solutions in the face of increasing regulation. With the recent banning of traditional UV filters like oxybenzone, oxycrylene and octinoxate from sunscreen formulation, developers have more limited ingredient options, especially if they want to create high SPF products with pleasant sensoriality at a reasonable price.
No surprise, then, that Hallstar Beauty’s two new sun care ingredients ̶ SolaPure™ Glo and SolaFresh™ ̶ received plenty of positive attention when they were launched at this month’s in-cosmetics Global event in Paris. These problem-solving products have specific, substantiated benefits for present and future sunscreen formulating.
SolaPure™ Glo [Vegetable Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract] is a natural multifunctional emollient that improves sun protection performance.
This holistic sun care solution leverages adaptogen-rich turmeric’s inherent skin care potential to improve sun protection performance, defend against inflammaging, and promote overall skin wellbeing. Ideal for regulatory restricted markets, the use of SolaPure™ Glo can help to achieve the same or higher sun protection efficacy with lower UV filter concentration in organic and inorganic sunscreen systems — a natural solution for reduced whitening and smoother texture.
SolaFresh™ [Diethylhexyl 2,6-Napthalate] is a multifunctional, globally-compliant, triplet-quenching sunscreen solvent that delivers a synergistic effect with other photostabilizers to achieve better sun protection performance in organic systems.
Regulatory restrictions on filter usage and/or filter percentage — such as the recent Hawaii and U.S. Virgin Islands ban on octocrylene, oxybenzone and octinoxate challenge formulators to achieve desirable SPF formulations while remaining compliant. SolaFresh™ is the solution.
