Soltan® Facial Sun Defence Cream - Optisol®
Company: Boots® and Oxonica® Ltd.
What Others Say
“Oxonica Ltd, a leading European technology company, has patented a revolutionary new UV filter called Optisol. As of this month, Optisol™ is available on shelves as an active component of Boots’ new Soltan Facial Sun Defence Cream.”
“Optisol is a milder, longer lasting and innovative new form of titanium dioxide, a commonly used ingredient in sunscreens which acts to absorb UV light. A tiny amount of manganese is incorporated within the titanium dioxide, adding major benefits; the manganese absorbs extra UVA giving a higher level of protection and also acts to stop the formation of free radicals in the titanium dioxide. These effects give enhanced performance which is extremely photostable, ensuring that the product’s ability to protect isn’t broken down by the sun.”
