Gattefossé's Caroline Perdriel explains how to achieve a sunscreen stick product with a light sensoriality and high SPF
Sun sticks' compact format makes them easy to carry around with no risk of leakage
This makes them especially useful for winter sports, sports generally and as a handbag staple during sunny periods.
But how can manufacturers ensure efficient protection meets the good sensory payoff that consumers demand?
In this article, Caroline Perdriel, International Technical Support Manager for Personal Care at ingredients supplier Gattefossé, breaks down what goes into a great sun stick product.
What are the characteristics of a good sun care stick? What are the advantages of such textures compared with others? How do you reach a powdery and light sensoriality with such a high SPF?

Some, such as our formula, also have an additional advantage: they are anhydrous, presenting, by nature, waterproof properties.
