- Organic filters Organic compounds, normally aromatic with carboxylic groups, that filter certain rays by the absorption of the ultraviolet radiation and transforming it in radiation of smaller energies, which do not harm the human beings.
- Inorganic filters Inorganic compounds, usually metallic oxides, that filter certain rays by the reflection of ultraviolet radiation.
- Dispersion of inorganic filters Ready for use and available in different systems, they aggregate ease and economy to the manufacturing process of products with sun protection factor, besides promoting greater adhesion and affinity of the product to the skin.
- Emulsifiers Type of surfactant that allows water-soluble and oil-soluble components to remain in a homogeneous mixture, through the formation of micelles. They can be W/O or O/W.
- Emollients Oils, esters and waxes that improve the spreadability and the sensory during and after the product application. They also promote other benefits, such as moisturizing and improving skin texture.
- SPF Booster agents Ingredients with absorption capacity of part of ultraviolet radiation, but which are not classified as a UV filter. They contribute to the increase of Solar Protection Factor of the product.
- Film-forming agents Ingredients capable of forming a thin flexible and protective film on the skin. They promote long lasting effect and water resistance.
- Rheology and thixotropy additives Agents that act to adjust the viscosity and fluidity of the formulations, promote the suspension of inorganic filters, increase stability, confer structure and binder function in molded products, as well as promoting “false body” effect - high viscosity at rest and greater discharge of products and spreading in the application.
- Sensory additives Ingredients that promote sensory improvement, either by increasing the spreadability or by improving the softness or creaminess of the formulation. They may also confer optical disguising on lines or absorption of excessive skin oiliness.
- Preservatives Systems that prevent microbiological growth and contamination, ensuring product stability during the usage.
- Structuring agents Ingredients that promote structure to the formulation, generally confer greater viscosity or allow the formulation to be molded to a specific packaging format.
- Actives Ingredients that act specifically on an action target, to improve and/or treat specific conditions of the skin, such as hydration, lines and wrinkles and sensitivity.
- Silicones Functional chemical compounds based on silicon, which may be fluids, resins or elastomers. They confer various properties, such as sensory improvement, optical disguising on lines and brightness.
- Solubilizers Generally they are surfactants that, when added to the formulations, promote greater solubility of some components, providing greater transparency or avoiding recrystallization or precipitation of actives.
