It is pleasant to observe how the laboratories invest resources in improving everything related to the cosmetic formulas used as sunscreen .
Before they were called solar bronzer , remember?, Because what was sought is! The moreno better!
Biodegradable sun cream
And now with better judgment and more experiences, the goal is to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the sun.
The topical photoprotection formulas have undergone changes and great advances in textures, filters, chosen audience, filter value, resistance, and more.
And that’s what I come to tell.
One of the most applauded novelties is to observe how the chosen filters become mostly ” ecological “.
In this sense the sun protection creams, with environmental responsibility, are made without silicones and without water-soluble filters.
In this way, by not being miscible in water, we do not contaminate the waters in which we bathe, and contribute to reduce the impact on marine biodiversity.
Also for this purpose, chemical filters are reduced in number and in concentration.
And in addition many laboratories formulate with mineral physical filters like the oxide of Titanium or the oxide of Zinc, that they degrade quickly and without leaving trace in the Nature. They are also called ” biodegradable filters ” that incorporate these biodegradable sunscreens .
Did you know that in Mexico there are areas where it is prohibited to bathe with sunscreen products if they do not meet these conditions? Which degrade rapidly and leave no trace in Nature. They are also called ” biodegradable filters ” that incorporate these biodegradable sunscreens .

Another of the great advances that more was demanded was the subject of the textures .
As the value of the sunscreen increased, from 15 to 20, to 50, to extrem, etc. The creams became heavier and whiter when applied to the skin.
They were not comfortable and they were very noticeable, because it looked like a layer of lime.
At the present time they are easy to apply, which means that we get the cream with pleasure and as many times as necessary.
They emphasize the solar creams in the form of esprai, useful for children and athletes, ultralight mists, dry oils, transparent aerosols and lotions.
As for the “extra” that many sun creams provide and make the public that seeks solutions to several of their problems find them, we talk about …… Anti- aging
solar protection creams as they incorporate anti-free radical actives. Creams with sunscreen and anti-stain . Solar creams that reinforce the skin barrier, advised for sensitive skin . Sunscreens with assets that protect the cellular DNA . Special sun creams for atopic skin. Sunscreens for hypersensitive allergic skin . Sun creams capable of prolonging the tan. ……..etc. Another cosmetic novelty in the field of sun protection are the powder dispensing brushes of very high sun protection with color,
Another important advance is the one directed to the child population group .
So the formulas of sun protection for children prioritize the elaboration on the basis of mineral screens until the 3 years.
And also the existence in the market of sunscreen creams for indirect exposure to the sun that can have a baby under 6 months.
And in particular, for atopic children some laboratories already commercialize sunscreens for atopic skin.
Australia was a pioneer in publishing regulations on the method for determining sun protection from clothing specifically designed for this purpose.
A value is set, Ultraviolet protection factor ( UPF ), to label the clothing and guide the consumer about its capacity of sun protection.
And it is that the clothing itself, provides a barrier to absorb and reflect UV radiation.
Take caution sun
But we have to distinguish the following:
Influence on the absorption of UV radiation porosity, weight, and thickness.
Dark colors offer more UV protection.
If the fabric is stretched the protection decreases.
