    BASF’s EcoSun Pass: eco-friendly sun protection

    • With EcoSun Pass, BASF is setting a new benchmark in environmentalawareness
    • The new methodology evaluates the environmental impact of UV filters
    • Consumers want more eco-friendly sun protection products

    Düsseldorf-Holthausen, Germany – June 4, 2019 – EcoSun Pass by BASF’s Care Creations® is a new methodology especially developed for sun protection products – evaluating the environmental compatibility of UV filter systems in sunscreens. The methodology supports the transparent assessment of UV filters based on internationally recognized criteria and comprises eight different parameters, from biodegradation and aquatic toxicity to endocrine disruption potential. It not only considers environmental factors for individual UV filters, but provides a comprehensive environmental evaluation of filter systems; as such, it marks a further milestone for BASF on the road to a sustainable future.

    The potential negative impacts sunscreens may have on the environment are increasingly being discussed and are subject of comprehensive research worldwide. Consumers are looking for sunscreens that offer an effective UV protection and at the same time are eco-friendly. “As the world’s market leader in sun care ingredients, we want to support our customers in increasing the environmental compatibility of their products. On the basis of latest scientific findings, our EcoSun Pass enables us to advise formulators already during the development stage, which UV filter combinations are best suited for their application – in the interest of both the consumer and the environment,” said Dr. Christian Cremer, Director Global Development & Technical Service UV Protection, Personal Care Solutions Europe.
