UVA/UVB protective agents are important constituents in many cosmetics and sunscreen preparations. Analytical methodologies which enable the determination of combined substances with different spectrophotometric characteristics are therefore useful and cost-effective. To this end, the following substances in a sunscreen gel were analyzed: the UVB and UVA protective substances, 2-hydroxy-4-methoxy-benzophenone-5-sulphonic acid (BZP) and 2-phenylbenzymidazole-5-sulphonic acid (PBS), respectively… CONTINUE READING
