New ingredient simplifies sun care product formulation

Symrise is simplifying the development and manufacture of sunscreen products with its new ingredient. With its combination of UVA and UVB filters, Neo Heliopan Flat offers broad spectrum protection from ultraviolet radiation.

This enables the manufacture of sunscreen products, such as lotions, creams, sprays and oils with sun protection factors (SPF) from 6 to 50+ without the need to add additional UV filters on top. This helps cosmetics manufacturers because they can use fewer raw materials and accelerate the development and production of sunscreen products.

The substance is also suitable for cold production processes. This saves energy and benefits the environment. Currently, sunscreen products with sun protection factors over 30 are particularly sought after by consumers. Until now, production was more complicated by the fact that cosmetics manufacturers had to combine several UVA and UVB filters to achieve the desired SPF (Sun Protection Factor).

With Neo Heliopan Flat, Symrise now offers a blend of carefully selected UV filters that uniformly absorb solar radiation ranging from 300 to 360nm and therefore provide optimal protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. This makes additional UV filters unnecessary and simplifies the development and manufacture of sunscreen products with high sun protection factors.

“Manufacturing sunscreen products is considerably easier with Neo Heliopan Flat,” said Simone Peters, senior global product manager Sun Protection at Symrise. “Thanks to our innovative solution, cosmetics manufacturers can save time and resources and, at the same time, achieve the highest effectiveness.”
