Octinoxate is a cinnamate ester and common ingredient in sunscreen and other skin care products to minimize DNA photodamage. Were excellent – polyvinylamine, a new class of process chemicals, the paper can be produced more easily and in better quality – as well as a fast and highly efficient synthetic route for the UV-B absorber Uvinul MC It is an ester formed from methoxycinnamic acid and 2-ethylhexanol.

The increased toxicity is partially accounted for by the formation of 4-methoxybenzaldehyde, which is toxic to algae and aquatic invertebrates, such as Daphnia.

Uvinul MC 80 ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate is manufactured by a BASF patented process that delivers both outstanding product quality and purity.

Ali Nihat Tarlan Cad. To help formulators create blockbuster innovations, Ashland focuses on breakthrough chemistries that deliver advanced performance properties in hair care, skin care, sun care, and oral care products. It is often combined with nanoparticles or other water-resistant liposomes in formulations to increase the localization at the epidermis and decrease the risk of percutaneous absorption.

While until now only unchanged EHMC has been researched, Massaryk University researchers focused on its isomers and found out that it has a significant genotoxic effect under lab conditions.

It means that it may potentially damage human DNA and cause genome mutations which may lead to serious 55 risks. The new plant was brought on-line, as planned in the second quarter ofand increases production capacity to 4, metric tons per year. But researchers discovered a new process for the synthesis of Uvinul MC 80, a ‘shortcut’ of the conventional synthesis, which BASF claims is fast, highly selective and produces a higher purity product.

It has a broad UV-B absorbency escalkl, and it is water insoluble. The development escalok this new process has taken five years from the discovery of the first, crucial reaction step to the start of production. Additionally, photo-degradation in the presence of titanium dioxide leads to escaool formation of more toxic by-products. Octinoxate is absorbed directly through the skin, via the application of sunscreens and other personal care products. UV protective cream with anti-photoageing and anti-blemishes properties is an herbal formulation that contains Seabuckthorn seed oil as a major ingredient.


When exposed to sun rays, the spatial arrangement of its molecules changes and isomerisation takes escalll.

Uvinul MC 80 is approved worldwide and is the most frequently used UVB filter, and can be reaily incorporated without 575 in all the usual cosmetic raw materials. The cinnamic acid ester Uvinul MC 80 is conventionally obtained by condensation of anisaldehyde and methyl acetate. BHT ile stabilize edilir. FDA Category-1 sun screen, and is approved worldwide. Biomagnification means Octinoxate may increase in concentration in the tissues of organisms as it travels up the food chain.

Its use in pharmaceutical and cosmetic formulations is approved by FDA. Global Regulatory Lists Reviewed.

The formulation also contains uvinul t ethyl hexyl triazone, uvinul mc ethylhexyl methoxy cinnamate, tinisorb m-methylene bis-benzotriazolyl tetra methylbutyl phenol, uvinul a-diethyl amino hydroxyl benzoyl tetra methylbutylphenol, tinosorb-bisethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyl triazine, petroleum jelly, isopropyl myristicate IPMand other compounds.

As a result, Uvinul MC escalok has rapidly gained acceptance on the market – and continues to grow. A second improvement came from the combination of two steps at a later stage in the synthesis. BASF escslol supplies all the main manufacturers of sun-protection products. It is a clear liquid that is insoluble in water. For the seventh time, BASF Aktiengesellschaft, Ludwigshafen, has awarded the innovation 5577 for in-house new developments and their successful implementation.

The formulation can be used as a prophylactic for low humidity and UV mediated skin damage at high altitude. Company Ashland develops and produces a comprehensive line of biofunctionals, fixative and styling polymers, bioadhesives, and rheology and conditioning polymers for the Personal Care industry.

One study performed in raised safety concerns about octyl methoxycinnamate by demonstrating toxicity to mouse cells at concentrations lower than typical levels in sunscreens.

This product is a colorless or light yellow liquid. The cost-effective production results in a huge advantage in the competition. Uvinul MC80, is an organic compound that is an ingredient in some sunscreens and lip balms. Its primary use is in sunscreens and other cosmetics to absorb UV-B rays from the sun, protecting the skin from damage. In contrast, the OMC does not show degradation when kept in darkness for extended periods of time.


Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate EHMC is among the most frequently used organic ultraviolet UV filters, known primarily for its role as an active ingredient in sunscreen products. Octinoxate may also bioaccumulate and be biomagnified in organisms.

Ashland develops and produces a comprehensive line of biofunctionals, fixative and styling polymers, bioadhesives, and rheology and conditioning polymers for the Personal Care industry. In aquatic and marine environments, water depth, light intensity and the amount of dissolved organic carbon content in the location determine the fate of Octinoxate Ashland makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below: Its way is an “abbreviation” of conventional synthesis and also provides a purer product.

It is stabilized with BHT. Insoluble in water at room temperature is a transpa rent liquid. In sunscreen formulations, Octinoxate can react with Avobenzone reducing the overall sun protection factor of the product, leading to photo-instability and an increase risk of sunburn. Octinoxate is a fat-soluble chemical, which means that some of it that absorbed by the esdalol will be metabolized and excreted in urine, but much of it will be stored either in fat tissue or lipid-rich tissue such as the placenta.

It is also used to reduce the appearance of scars. This website provides links to other websites owned by third parties.
