Sunhancer™ Eco SPF booster increases the SPF of sun protection formulations. It is composed of micronized particles made from a blend of naturally derived and sustainably sourced waxes. It enables formulators to reduce the proportion of UV filter ingredients in formulations while maintaining the same level of skin protection as traditional UV filter-based formulations. Moreover, the reduction of UV filter ingredient content enabled by our natural SPF booster tends to improve sunscreen aesthetics and lightness while reducing oiliness and drag. Sunhancer™ Eco SPF booster is inherently biodegradable and non-persistent in the environment.
Our SPF booster’s blend is comprised of two ingredients that are sustainably sourced. Oryza Sativa Bran Wax is a by-product generated in the making of rice bran oil. Rice bran is a virtually unlimited, nearly 100% renewable source of wax. Copernicia cerifera wax, also called carnauba wax, is obtained from the leaves of the Brazilian tree of the same name. Rest assured our partner suppliers promote fair trade and comply with the code of ethics for sustainable carnauba.
