Amaze XT Improves Water Resistance

October 3, 2007

At the Florida Sunscreen Symposium in Lake Buena Vista, National Starch Personal Care presented a technical solution that promises to expand the use of inorganic UV filters in water resistant sunscreen formulations.

Data made public during a technical poster presentation indicated that sunscreen formulations manufactured with a special rheology modifier and film-forming polymer had, in combination, served to significantly boost the water resistance properties of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.

The research findings pave the way for makers of sunscreen products to incorporate inorganic UV filters into water resistant beach wear, sports wear and daily wear formulas without technical challenges.

The Amaze XT polymer—in conjunction with a water-soluble film-forming polymer—delivers enhanced SPF and water resistance to systems formulated with inorganic UV filters.
