Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology A: Chemistry, 333, 186-199 . https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jphotochem.2016.10.027

We have investigated how the sun protection factor (SPF) of different types of sunscreen film varies with “standard” solar irradiation due to photochemical processes. We have used a combination of chemical actinometry, measurement and modelling to es... Read More about How the sun protection factor (SPF) of sunscreen films change during solar irradiation.

Evaporation of particle-stabilised emulsion sunscreen films (2016)
Journal Article
Binks, B. P., Fletcher, P. D., Johnson, A. J., Marinopoulos, I., Crowther, J. M., & Thompson, M. A. (2016). Evaporation of particle-stabilised emulsion sunscreen films. ACS applied materials & interfaces, 8(33), 21201-21213. https://doi.org/10.1021/acsami.6b06310

We recently showed (Binks et al., ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces, 2016, DOI: 10.1021/acsami.6b02696) how evaporation of sunscreen films consisting of solutions of molecular UV filters leads to loss of UV light absorption and derived sun protection facto...

Evaporation of Sunscreen Films: How the UV Protection Properties Change (2016)
Journal Article
Binks, B. P., Brown, J., Fletcher, P. D., Johnson, A. J., Marinopoulos, I., Crowther, J. M., & Thompson, M. A. (2016). Evaporation of Sunscreen Films: How the UV Protection Properties Change. ACS applied materials & interfaces, 8(21), 13270-13281. https://doi.org/10.1021/acsami.6b02696

© 2016 American Chemical Society. We have investigated the evaporation of thin sunscreen films and how the light absorption and the derived sun protection factor (SPF) change. For films consisting of solutions of common UV filters in propylene glycol... Read More about Evaporation of Sunscreen Films: How the UV Protection Properties Change.
