A Tightrope between Skin Protection and Aesthetics
Most sunscreen filters in skin care are heavy oils (leading to greasy formulations) or minerals (leaving a white cast). It gets difficult to innovate and manufacture to achieve the right feel and meet the required regulatory guidelines at the same time. Combining optimal stable SPF/PA along with desirable aesthetics is a challenging problem.
Sunscreens are a delicate balance of:
- UVA/ UVB Filters for Desired Sun Metrics
- Emollients/ Solubilizers
- Feel Modifiers
- Film Formers for Water Resistance
- Botanical Agents /UV Boosters
Sunscreens are Equivalent to Pharmaceutical Formulations!
In the world of skincare, not all sunscreens are created equal. Hitech Formulations takes sunscreen formulation to a whole new level — a level that mirrors the precision and scrutiny of pharmaceutical formulations. In fact, did you know that in the United States, sunscreens are categorized as drugs? That means they're held to the most stringent standards and before making any claim, the product needs to undergo stringent testing under recommended standard conditions to substantiate critical sunscreen parameters such as:
- SPF/PA Ratings
- Water Resistance
- Critical Wavelength/Broad-Spectrum
- Additional claims like Non-Comedogenicity
Our Sunscreens excel on these parameters
