Tape stripping in conjunction with scanning Raman microscopy was used for assessing the lateral and vertical distribution of an organic particulate UV filter, methylene bis-benzotriazolyl tetramethylbutylphenol (MBBT), in a sunscreen formulation. On the volar forearms of three volunteers, 1 mg cm(-2) formulation containing 10% MBBT was applied, and the… CONTINUE READING
