Shea Butter Titanium Dioxide SPF 30 Sunscreen

This formulation was designed to provide SPF 30 performance using only HallBrite® EZ-FLO TDX to deliver UV filter content. It is water-resistant, preservative-free, and can be customized with natural butters and oils. The HallBrite® BHB in HallBrite® EZ FLO TDX aids wetting and dispersion of the Titanium Dioxide and enhances product feel. The combination of Biochemica® Shea Butter – HMP and Biochemica® Sweet Almond Oil softens, moisturizes and rejuvenates skin.

Single-subject in vivo testing yielded static SPF 40.2 in a U.S. lab. In vitro analysis delivered SPF ~40, PFA (PPD) ~8 performance, with critical wavelength 376 nm.
