SUNSCREEN COMPOSITION

(WO2008022970) 28.02.2008 A61K 8/35 UNILEVER PLC
It has been reported that many organic sunscreens lose their efficacy on exposure to UV rays. Further some of the organic sunscreens are known to interact with each other when applied on the skin with or without exposure to UV radiation. Thus such compositions are not stable. They are not very effective in blocking the UV-rays a few minutes or hours after the product has been applied to the skin. Further when such compositions are used and then exposed to sunlight or UV rays, the period over which the skin is actually protected is very short, while the consumer is under the mistaken impression that the composition is protecting his/her skin. This false impression can lead to the consumer exposing himself/herself more to sunlight thereby get...
