Product description

AakoSun TiO2 is better known  as Titanium Dioxide. Ultrafine TiO2 is extremely efficient at protecting all aspects of UV light that can affect skin. It absorbs, scatters and reflects both UV-A and UV-B radiation. Unlike other compounds used in sunscreens, which may absorb only a part of the UV radiation. Combined with other organic and inorganic UV filters it will boost the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) and UV-A Protection Factor (UVAPF) efficacy of the total formulation. Titanium Dioxide is being used in a wide range of cosmetic products to provide an very high SPF. When used in skin care and make-up products, Titanium Dioxide also acts as a pigment and thickener for creams.

Approved for the use in sun care preparations in many countries worldwide.
