Spectroscopic methods for sunscreen characterisation

Diagram of the analysis

Sunscreens protect the skin from the damaging effects of both UVA and UVB rays. It is important to characterise these products’ photoactivity, composition and formulation. In this application note, fluorescence spectroscopy, Raman microscopy and particle size distribution analysis prove to be valuable techniques to assess their effectiveness, stability and skin absorption.
