This provides a Natural Index close to 100% and creates a light texture, fresh touch, and soft after-feel in sunscreen formulations.
All entries were rated for their merits on sustainability, multifunctionality, novelty, claims support, and utility.
Most Significant Sun/Light Protection Formula–Mass:
Cold Process Mineral SPF 50+ Formulation
From the Judges:“It’s great that the formula is cold processed, [from a] sustainability [standpoint]. …This formula does represent a good alternative to chemical SPF products in a stable and reliable form. The use of NATURSOL™ EMI 132 as a unique stabilizing ingredient would lend a considerable amount of stability to traditionally unstable physical sunblocks. … Congratulations on an incremental but significant advance in cosmetic emulsion formulation!”
