Sunscreens are a formulation challenge, especially when it comes to meeting organic and natural consumer demands.
A research team out of Italy and the US, Tortini et al, recently published a narrative review of natural and organic sunscreen formulations in the Cosmetics journal. The paper's goal was to congregate information on natural and organic formulation.
Tortini et al said consumers, particularly those born after 2000, are both interested in sun protection products and the environmental impacts of products.
“The formulation of effective and pleasant sunscreen, having a natural, organic, sustainable connotation, is getting a more and more complex approach for the paucity of suitable ingredients,” Tortini et al said.
