Gattefossé unveils its new collection of suncare formulas

The launch of this new sun kit is the culmination of several months' work by the Gattefossé teams, who put their expertise in formulation and sensorial analysis to work on this sun care product.

This kit, made up of 8 formulas and created from 4 flagship ingredients in its portfolio (emulsifiers or texturizing agents), meets both the challenges faced by formulators and the needs and demands of consumers.

The sensoriality of suncare products is a major concern and a challenge for formulators. The addition of UV filters to cosmetics creates a greasy, sticky sensation that is difficult to conceal and unpleasant for the consumer.

The sensorial evaluation of its products and formulas is a core concern for Gattefossé, which has drawn on its expertise in textures developed over 25 years ago. Gattefossé thus reaffirms its expertise in suncare, offering a collection of formulas combining effective UV protection and application comfort to meet consumer needs:

- Innovative textures and unexpected filter combinations

- Optimizing sensoriality

- Understanding of global specificities (regulations, needs, climate, etc.)

- Testing suncare products in real-life conditions

- Use of a UV camera to visualize sunscreen products once applied to the skin and their behavior over time

Ingredients for sensorial suncare products

Gattefossé has developed ingredients that respond to the major issues encountered when formulating suncare products: performance, stability and sensoriality.

Emulium lllustro, a W/O emulsifier with proven compatibility with organic and inorganic UV filters, creating stable, comfortable formulas.

Emulium Dolcea MB, an O/W emulsifier, creates stable textures with an ultra-soft, non-sticky finish.

Emulium Mellifera MB is another O/W emulsifier that helps formulate suncare products with a light, non-greasy finish.

Acticire MB is an active texturizing agent that improves the sensoriality of suncare products by reducing the greasy, sticky finish. It also improves the durability of the protective film, such as
observed with the UV camera.

"We've been working in suncare for 8 years now. Our ingredients enable us to create innovative textures with all kinds of UV filters. Our sensory panel helps us optimize the sensory profiles of our suncare formulations. As performance is our top priority, we test our formulas to guarantee their protective efficacy (in vitro and in vivo SPF, UVA), water resistance and the photostability of UV filters.

We can help customers with any solar-related questions, or provide expertise and support for their formulation projects. "explains Malorie Duvent, Gattefossé's cosmetics evaluation manager and sun expert.

8 suncare formulas for every situation

Gattefossé's cosmetics applications laboratory has worked on 8 new formulations, with very different sensory profiles and containing organic, inorganic or combined UV filters, to meet all photo-protection requirements.
