Lubrizol unveils planet-friendly SPF booster

Sunhancer Eco SPF booster is non-nano, inherently biodegradable and non-persistent in the environment

Lubrizol Life Science – Beauty (LLS Beauty) has launched a naturally-derived technology that increases SPF and is compatible with both organic and inorganic sunscreen actives.

Sunhancer Eco SPF booster is said to be non-nano, inherently biodegradable and non-persistent in the environment, meaning it ticks all the boxes for use in ‘reef friendly’ sunscreens.

In enables reduction in the quantity of UV filters used in formulations for a potentially lower environmental impact while maintaining protection from the sun.

“As regulations continue to tighten around the use of UV filters, Sunhancer Eco SPF booster is a great way to reduce the UV filters needed in formulations while maintaining the same level of skin protection,” said LLS Beauty’s Global Marketing Manager, Maxime Fougere.

Because of its distinct size and shape, Sunhancer Eco SPF booster provides a powdery after-feel to formulations, while the reduction of UV filter content it facilitates results in improved sunscreen aesthetics and lightness while reducing oiliness and drag.

LLS Beauty notes that these benefits make it a strong contender for use in daily sunscreens, or multitasking moisturisers with sun protection.
