Octocrylene is simply one of the most extensively used chemical (all-natural) sunscreen. The well-known ANSAN tiny gold container, Shiseido New Sunlight Water Power Defense Lotion, L’Oreal New Multi-Protection Privacy Cream, ISDIN Multi-dimensional Light Treatment Qin Rongshui Feeling Sun Block, La Roche-Posay Distinct Therapy Light Sun Block, Proya Plume Really Feeling Sun Block, Dabao Clear Dual Defense Sunscreen, and so forth, all include octocrylene. Since 2019, there are 2,999 sunscreen products consisting of octocrylene in the USA.

Octocrylene For Skin Uses

  1. Octocrylene can be utilized as ultraviolet absorber in plastics, paints, dyes, etc.
  2. Octocrylene For Skin is an organic substance utilized in sunscreen as well as makeup.

Safety of Octocrylene For Skin

Regarding the safety of Octocrylene For Skin, there are two main aspects: 1. The safety of octocrylene itself; 2. The safety of octocrylene residues and benzophenone produced by degradation accumulation.

Studies have suggested that octocrylene has potential sensitization, endocrine interference and reproductive developmental toxicity. However, there are also opinions that using octocrylene alone will not cause photosensitivity, and cases of allergies to sunscreens containing octocrylene are extremely rare. Some cases of skin irritation from sun exposure (photosensitivity) and transient skin irritation have involved the use of high concentrations of octocrylene. This ingredient is not an endocrine disruptor as defined by the World Health Organization.

In 1994, SCCP (the predecessor of SCCS, the EU Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety) evaluated the safety of octocrylene in cosmetics (SCCP, 1994), and considered that the substance was non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizer .

After careful study, it is believed that Octocrylene For Skin has sensitization and endocrine-disrupting reports, and experimenters must use products containing octocrylene in high concentrations every day. In actual application, the amount of octocrylene added to sunscreen will not be very high, and there is a big gap between the experimental environment and real application. Zhen Yao tends to believe in the conclusions of the “EU Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety”.

In addition, the current formulation technology adopts a large number of wrapping, slow-release, and isolation technologies, which can prevent octocrylene from directly contacting the skin and penetrating into the human body to a certain extent. Based on a comprehensive judgment, the safety of octocrylene itself is guaranteed and can be used.

However, if you have particularly sensitive and fragile skin, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should be cautious at this time, and it is best not to use sunscreen products containing octocrylene.

Octocrylene For Skin Safety Measures

Octocrylene passes through the skin and also acts as a photosensitizer, thereby enhancing the production of complimentary radicals. According to Wikipedia (cite # 2), totally free radicals can trigger indirect DNA damages, possibly enhancing the incidence of deadly melanoma, by comparing individuals that utilize sun block with those that don’t.

The cosmetics database (the CosmeticsDatabase, referral # 3) can locate the threat degree of octocrylene as moderate due to its possible reproductive toxicity (reproductive toxicity) and also those prospective cancer causing negative effects (cancer causing side effects). Nonetheless, no toxicity worries have actually been identified at high focus in topical sunscreens as well as various other skin treatment products.
