Tinosorb® S Lite Aqua

Sun protection with a light skinfeel

Reliable sun protection with a light, non-greasy feel – consumers want modern sunscreens with effective UV filters yet without a heavy skinfeel. Tinosorb® S Lite Aqua makes it easy, with patented water-encapsulating technology that partitions UV filters in the oil and water phases, boosting sun protection and increasing formulation flexibility. The copolymer is ideal for low-viscosity systems, providing broad-spectrum absorption for the water phase. In addition, it offers water resistance over a wide concentration range. Cold-processable and pumpable, requiring no solubilization, Tinosorb® S Lite Aqua is exceptionally easy to handle.
