Properties

Tinosorb® M introduces a new technology of UV skin protection. It is the first sun filter using microfine particle technology which acts both as a micropigment and organic UV absorber. Tinosorb® M is a highly efficient sunscreen due to its triple action: UV absorption by a photostable organic molecule, light scattering and light reflection by its microfine structure.
Tinosorb® S introduces a new chemistry to the market of cosmetic UV absorbers. Besides the excellent performance as a photostable broad-spectrum UV filter, it is compatible with organic and inorganic filters. Tinosorb® S meets the high safety requirements and is oil soluble for high water resistance. Tinosorb® S is a daily broad-spectrum filter. It provides excellent UV-A protection to serve as a basis for UV protective day creams and shows synergistic effects with UV-B filters for high-SPF sunscreens.
Tinosorb® S Aqua offers for the water phase the same high performance broad-spectrum UV Filter technology know from the original Tinosorb® S. The use of Tinosorb® S Aqua allows a more balanced incorporation of UV filters in the water and oil phase.
Uvinul® A Plus B is a ready to use convenient mixture of a UVB filter (Uvinul MC80) with a UVA filter (Uvinul A Plus). The product is easy to handle and miscible in a wide range of cosmetic oils and solvents. It offers efficient protection against long-wave UVA radiation and UVB light providing ideal broad band protection in a liquid form.
Uvinul MS40 is a water soluble broad band filter. It has world wide approval for skin protection and it is widely used in sun preparations. It can also offer protection of colourants against fading and help stabilise fragrances and active ingredients against oxidation.
Z-Cote zinc oxide is known for its skin compatibility as it is used as a skin protectant. It has antimicrobial properties and is non-toxic. Z-Cote has broad spectrum UV attenuation properties due to its absorbing and reflecting properties. This makes it an ideal candidate to formulate suncare products with broad-spectrum characteristics. It is particularly recommended for daily care and children's products. Z-Cote is an uncoated micronised zinc oxide and has an amphiphilic nature. It is preferentially incorporated into the water phase of a formulation.
Z-Cote HP1 has broad spectrum UV attenuation properties due to its absorbing and reflecting properties. Thus it is an ideal candidate to formulate suncare products with broad-spectrum characteristics. It is particularly recommended for daily care and children's products. Z-Cote HP1 is a coated micronised zinc oxide with a hydrophobic coating which enables it to be easily incorporated into the oil phase of a formulation.

Applications

Tinosorb®, Uvinul®, and Z-Cote® types from BTC are used as UVA + UVB filters in all kind of sun care products.
