Broad Spectrum Protection
ZinClear-IM has a broad absorption profile spanning both UVA and UVB. ZinClear-IM may be used alone or in combination with other UV filters to produce high SPF sunscreens that will meet the UVAPF>(1/3)SPF criterion where required. ZinClear-IM can also be formulated for the critical wavelength to reach 370nm where required. ZinClear-IM is photostable in formulations and is not prone to degrade or lose effectiveness under influence of UV.

Typical Performance / Required Loadings
ZinClear-IM can be formulated at high loadings to achieve high SPF without compromising the clarity of the end product. The table below serves as a guide only, as the SPF will additionally depend on the type of formulation.
SPF Target ZinClear-IM Loading Equivalent ZnO Loading
<15 15-25% ~7.5-12.5%
15-25 30-40% ~15-20%
30+ 40-50% ~20-25%

It is recommended that formulators conduct in vivo SPF testing when possible during product development to ensure reliability of results.

It is recommended that all ZinClear-IM dispersions be well mixed prior to use. A minor loss of product as sediment in the bottom of the container may be experienced.
