Properties and Benefits
CapSol™ allows for a significant reduction in the UV actives required to achieve targeted SPF levels. CapSol™ technology has initially demonstrated success with the popular SPF sunscreen filters octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC – a UVB absorber) and avobenzone (a UVA absorber). The combination of these two sunscreens allows formulators to make broad spectrum claims in sun care formulations. CapSol™ formulations containing low amounts of OMC and avobenzone consistently show in vivo SPF values at or above desired SPF values with excellent long term stability. CapSol™ also enables formulators to add creativity to their projects, such as the addition of fragrance, preservative, colour and water soluble actives.

CAPSOL™ SPF 30 VS COMMERCIAL BENCHMARK
A 20-person consumer panel study comparing a CapSol™ SPF 30 formulation (041-013) with a market leading SPF 30 product shows that a simple SPF formulation containing CapSol™ is preferred by the majority of panellists in all attributes measured as well as in overall preference. Testing was performed on a 20-person blind panel, with an equal amount of product applied to the back of each hand.
