HallStar Introduces Sunscreen Photostabilizer

November 30, -0001

The HallStar Company, a Chicago-based specialty chemistry supplier, released a groundbreaking new ingredient that can improve the performance of all types of sun protection products, according to the company. HallStar’s SolaStay S1 is a new, more powerful photostabilizer that, when added to sunscreen formulations, can help sunscreen formulators achieve previously unobtainable levels of protection against both the burning and aging rays of the sun.

When exposed to energy from solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation, UV filters like avobenzone break down and lose their effectiveness. To prevent this, formulators add photostabilizers to slow down the degradation. SolaStay S1 uses a different, more effective process to prevent or slow UV filter degradation, dramatically outperforming every other photostabilizer in the market. The result is maximized UVA protection and increased SPF, according to HallStar.

SolaStay S1 is suitable for lotions, creams, sprays and gels. This is a powerful new tool for formulators who want UVA and UVB protection in their sunscreens and daily wear products.
