With the global sunscreen market expected to reach $24.4 billion worldwide by 2029, this demonstrates the increasing awareness of the damaging effects of sunlight. Sunscreen has been gradually evolving, and new photoprotective ingredients are continuing to be produced in response to growing scientific evidence on the effect of solar radiation on the skin. 
Sunscreens and Photoaging: A Review of Current Literature
TLDR
Evidence suggests that visible light and infrared light may play a role in photoaging and should be considered when choosing a sunscreen, and further explores the requirements for an ideal sunscreen.
UV Filters: Challenges and Prospects
The use of sunscreens is an established and recommended practice to protect skin from solar-induced damage. Around 30 UV filters can be used in sunscreen products in the European Union, which ought
Intermolecular Interactions and In Vitro Performance of Methyl Anthranilate in Commercial Sunscreen Formulations
In order to afford the required level of broad-spectrum photoprotection against UV-B and UV-A radiation, sunscreens must contain a combination of UV filters. It is important that any interactions

Suntanning with sunscreens: a comparison with sunbed tanning
TLDR
The objective here was to compare the ultraviolet (UV) exposure resulting from a 2‐week vacation spent sunbathing with sunscreen‐protected skin, with that from a typical course of 10 sessions on a sunbed.
A Survey of Ultraviolet Absorbers in Commercially Available Sun Products
TLDR
The value of the UV absorbers used in commercially available sunscreening products on the Belgian market was checked, and which UV filters were being most commonly used by industry was found to be wrong.
Effect of Sunscreen Application Under Maximal Use Conditions on Plasma Concentration of Sunscreen Active Ingredients: A Randomized Clinical Trial.
TLDR
In this preliminary study involving healthy volunteers, application of 4 commercially available sunscreens under maximal use conditions resulted in plasma concentrations that exceeded the threshold established by the FDA for potentially waiving some nonclinical toxicology studies forSunscreen ingredients.
Sunscreens : Regulations and Commercial Development
TLDR
Production and Quality Control, Regulatory Aspects, Cosmetic Formulations, and Analytical Testing Procedures.
Efficiency of opaque photoprotective agents in the visible light range.
TLDR
Opaque sunscreens protected against hematoporphyrin derivative photosensitization of albino guinea pig skin; these results were quantitatively consistent with the in vitro findings.
The PABA story
TLDR
The qualities of para‐aminobenzoic acid (PABA) are discussed and an account is given of how it came to be the favourite sunscreen of the post World War II era but continued exposure to chemicals of this type could lead to autoimmune responses especially systemic lupus erythematosus and dermatomyositis.
Impact of long-wavelength UVA and visible light on melanocompetent skin.
TLDR
Results showed that although both UVA1 and visible light can induce pigmentation in skin types IV-VI, pigmentation induced by visible light was darker and more sustained.
AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF THE CHANGES IN PIGMENTATION IN HUMAN SKIN IN VIVO WITH VISIBLE AND NEAR INFRARED LIGHT
Abstract— The skin of the lower inner arm of volunteers was irradiated, with a 390–1700 nm light source, through a fiber optic bundle for times of up to 1.2 × 104 s and with powers of up to 0.35
Early destructive effect of sunlight on human skin.
TLDR
The facial skin of white persons has been assessed throughout the human life span for the severity of elasticfiber changes as an indicator of sunlight damage, and sunlight, not innate aging, is mainly responsible for the worst manifestation of senile skin.
