Consistent regulation of nanotechnology is important in sun care

Sun care was the key theme at the in-cosmetics show in Barcelona this year, and Cosmetics Design caught up with Croda research manager Dr Ian Tooley to quiz him on all things regulation and nano.

Regulation is one of the key things to consider in sunscreen formulation, and particularly regulations around nanotechnology.

The ingredients provider is part of a working group in association with Cosmetics Europe, formerly Colipa, in which raw material suppliers and brands team up to deal with these regulations and ensure that consistent information is being worked with.

Tooley pointed out that consistent regulation of nanotechnology is of great importance, particularly as certain ingredients have been used for a while and there is a whole host of safety information that accompanies this.

“The FDA monograph last year was very important; it is good to get endorsement from the FDA regarding nanotechnology,” said Tooley.

At the show, Croda also showcased its latest addition to its Solaveil sun care range, based on the success of its previous SpeXtra range. The new product the SOlaveil XT40W delivers both SPF and UVA properties and addresses the SPF performance criteria in one single active.
