Mineral Sunscreens Go High-Tech

What happens if you fuse advanced micro encapsulation technology with SPF? The result is an innovative way to protect the skin from the suns powerful UVA and UVB rays, as new research shows.

In recent years, the use of mineral UV filters titanium dioxide (TiO2) and zinc oxide (ZnO) has increased rapidly. Mineral UV filters have become more popular these days mainly thanks to their natural mineral sources, regulatory developments and “reef-safe” claims. Despite these advantages, there are various challenges and disadvantages associated with them. New research has shown that Tagra’s mineral SunCaps™, an advanced microencapsulation technology which uses inorganic UV filters, is an innovative solution for both manufacturers and consumers.
