자외선 차단

Between the seasonality of sun care, the need to educate consumers about sun protection and the impact of the pandemic on the market, sun care brands undoubtedly have a lot to overcome. But the future is still bright, thanks to trends like mineral-based, ocean-friendly, waterless, clean beauty, hybrid care and other unique sunscreens. Sensient is enabling innovation in the sun care space with natural ingredients backed with testing results and powerful formulations.

Are we entering the age of mineral sunscreens? Nearly 16 percent of sunscreens launched in 2020 were mineral based, according to Mintel. Mineral sunscreen taps into formulas that include zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, as opposed to formulas with chemical ingredients, to reduce harmful ingredients, skin irritation and on a large scale, environmental impact. 

Paired with dispersion, Sensient’s pure mineral filters create sun protection by absorbing and scattering UV energy. Natpure® Screen TWG, a dispersion of ultrafine titanium dioxide, is a convenient and effective solution for formulators seeking to enter the mineral sunscreen market. It gives greater control over sunscreen active ingredients and helps to ensure consistent UV protection.

Sensient has also developed expertise in pigment dispersions, which simplify formulation by eliminating the need for powders along with the equipment investments and labor requirements they bring. Simplicity aside, dispersions have many technical advantages, including higher transparency with no sedimentation, no re- agglomeration, and a two-year shelf life.
