He003f - In vitro Critical Wavelength evaluation for Broad Spectrum claim (FDA 2011 compliant)

On June 2011 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced new requirements for sunscreens currently sold over-the-counter (OTC). Sunscreens that pass FDA’s In vitro Critical Wavelength test procedure, which measures a product’s ultraviolet A (UVA) protection relative to its ultraviolet B (UVB) protection, may be labeled as «Broad Spectrum» with SPF value on the front label. This test is based upon an in vitro spectrophotometric measurement technique including an UV exposition to a representative dose of sun-simulated ultraviolet radiation, to allow for any photo-instability of the active ingredients contained within the sun protection product.

He003b1 - In vitro UVA:UVB ratio - The Boots Star Rating system (2011 revision)

He001c - In Vitro SPF with pre-irradiation and multi-substrates*

This test consists in evaluating the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) which expresses the sun protection level of a sunscreen product through the full UV spectrum, using a multi-substrates approach (molded and sandblasted plates) on which the product has been spread and measured by means of a spectrophotometric method. This method allows a higher correlation with in vivo results and the product was UV exposed to take into account any potential photo-unstability.

He004 - In vitro Water Resistance evaluation*

The in vitro Water Resistance (WR) of sunscreens was tested by applying the same principle as in vivo, which determines the percentage of retention of sunscreen products by assessing the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) before and after water immersion. Based on a publication, this in vitro method for Water Resistance percentage assessment is a practical, convenient and relevant tool in terms of reproduciblity and correlation with in vivo values.

He004a - In vitro Very Water Resistance evaluation (double immersion)

The in vitro Very Water Resistance (VWR) of sunscreens was tested by applying the same principle as in vivo, which determines the percentage of retention of sunscreen products by assessing the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) before and after double water immersions. Based on a publication, this in vitro method for Very Water Resistance percentage assessment is a practical, convenient and relevant tool in terms of reproduciblity and correlation with in vivo values.

He005b - In vitro statistical comparison between two products (ageing, batch...)*

The statistical comparison method is used to compare two sunscreen products in terms of ageing, batch, benchmarck, etc. Based on all absorbance spectrum checking between a reference and a product to be tested by means of an in vitro method, two important rules are followed. First, compare at the same time and same conditions the two products to limit the measurements variability. Second, a three stepped checking based on the absorbance values including comparison of the shape of the curves, variability and intensity.

He006b - In Vitro Dynamic Photostability evaluation (2 irradiation steps)*

One paradox of sunscreen products is that in order for them to protect against UV radiation, they must be exposed to it, which induces their photo-degradation and, in turn, a progressive loss in efficacy. The present dynamic method measures photo-stability based on the residual efficacies of UVA+B parts in a formula. By using a reproducible substrate, an automated spreading and different doses of UV exposure, samples also could be ranked in order of stability-potentially providing new label claims.

He802 - In vitro evaluation of non absorption in the UV

This test consists in evaluating the non absorption of a cosmetic product through the full UV spectrum, using an adequate substrate on which the product has been spread and measured by means of a spectrophotometric method.

He805 - In vitro Rub Resistance of a sunscreen product*

Consumers now require traditional sun protection with improved esthetics and added benefits including water resistance and other resistance factors. Following this need, HelioScreen developed a new in vitro UV method to reliably determine the rub resistance of sun care products. The resulting Rub Resistance Factor indicates whether a sunscreen is still effective after being rubbed with a textile (towel, cloth, etc.). This new in vitro test is also marketable, and provides a strong label claim for sunscreen manufacturers to make on sun care products.

He806 - In vitro Wet Skin application of a sunscreen product*

Today’s consumers are more and more attracted by sun care products which can be applied directly after getting out of the water. Therefore, to market a new sunscreen that can keep its sun protection when applied on wet skin, HelioScreen exclusively developped an innovative In Vitro method. This method is based on the comparison of the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) on a dry then a wet substrate and the calculation of Wet Skin percentage.

He807 - In vitro Infrared protection assessment of a sunscreen product*

Since Infrared (IR), including the IRA and IRB, is the most implicated in skin damage, IR protection factors should be comparable between products and provide the balance of UV, visible and IR protection within a single product. This innovative in vitro method consists in evaluating the IR protection levels expressed by the IR-CW (UV/VIS/IR balance) and the % IR (percentage of intensity of IR protection) from a sunscreen product through the full spectrum (from 290 nm to 2500 nm) measured by means of a spectrophotometric method. To take into account any potential photo-unstability, the product was pre-irradiated before measurement. Finally, this method relies on the use of in vivo SPF results for scaling the absorbance curve.

He808 - In vitro Blue Light protection assessment of a sunscreen product*

Considering that long-term exposure to BL (from the sun light, digital and electronics devices using LED technology, etc.), this damage induces similar physiological responses in the skin to UV exposure which translate to the typical signs of premature skin aging such as loss of elasticity, dryness and fine lines. This innovative in vitro method consists in evaluating the Blue Light protection levels expressed by the BL-CW (UV/VIS balance) and the % BL (percentage of intensity of BL protection) from a sunscreen product through the spectrum (from 290 nm to 500 nm) measured by means of a spectrophotometric method. To take into account any potential photo-unstability, the product was pre-irradiated before measurement. Finally, this method relies on the use of in vivo SPF results for scaling the absorbance curve.

He809 - In Vitro Full Spectrum assessment of a sunscreen product*

Sunscreen products should be able to protect our skin from the all solar spectrum including UV, Visible and IR wavelengths. Nevertheless, even if sunscreen products with a protection beyond the UV is now worldwide recognized and used, none standardized methods are available for protection assessment, nor any regulations regarding the limits criteria for claiming purpose Therefore, in this present work, the authors developped a new In Vitro method and limits criteria allowing the assessment of the Full Spectrum (also called Full Light) protection of sunscreens including UV, Visible and IR protection.

He810 - In Vitro assessment of the resistance of the sun protection in extreme conditions*

A new In Vitro test has been developped to check, by means of a spectrophotometric method, if the sunscreen product preserves its UV protection in extreme conditions in termes of temperature and hydrometry. The aim is to guarantee to consumers a protection against UV whatever the season or the place where they are.

He811 - In Vitro Visible protection assessment of a sunscreen product

Considering that Visible (VIS) light from 400 to 700 nm (mainly from the sun light) also contributes to skin damage via induction of radical protection, a relative protection can be effective whatever the benefits or harmful effect of VIS on the skin and should be assessed in a reliable manner. Therefore, this innovative in vitro method consists in evaluating the Visible protection levels expressed by the VIS-CW (UV/VIS balance) and the % VIS (percentage of intensity of VIS protection) from a sunscreen product through the spectrum (from 290 nm to 700 nm) measured by means of a spectrophotometric method. To take into account any potential photo-unstability, the product was pre-irradiated before measurement. Finally, this method relies on the use of in vivo SPF results for scaling the absorbance curve.
