Additional functionalities for Sunscreen Simulator
BASF’s Care Creations has further refined the functionality and scope of its Sunscreen Simulator. The virtual laboratory now provides even more options for digitally defining the UV protection of a sun protection product.
Sunscreen Simulator 4.0 offers an updated, customisable user interface. The new cockpit functionality guides users through the simulator and expands options for creating and managing projects and personal data. Access to helpful scientific support has also been integrated into the cockpit.
"The integration of the EcoSun Pass is a tremendous step forward for formulators. In addition to UV performance, they can now also directly check the environmental impact of the selected UV filter systems," explains Dr Myriam Sohn from the Global Technical Center Sun Care.
In addition to the known performance parameters (SPF, UVA protection, photostability), it is now also possible to perform calculations to protect against blue light irradiation and the generation of free radicals.
The Solubilizer Simulator is also entirely new: As part of the Sunscreen Simulator it evaluates the efficacy of the combination of UV filters and emollients and provides information about the naturalness (as defined by ISO16128) of the emollients.
