Comparison with Avobenzone

  • DHHB has the same effect as the current best UVA sunscreen Avobenzone. While Its stability in the sun is much better than Avobenzone,as Avobenzone’s ability to absorb ultraviolet radiation will quickly reduce in the sun. Therefore in the formula you need to add other UV absorber as a light stabilizer, in order to reduce the loss of Avobenzone. While it is not necessary to worry about this problem when using DHHB. DHHB instead of Avobenzone, become a model UVA sunscreen agent, with better light stability than Avobenzone, do not need to add MBC, OMC compound, with lower cost and better effect.
