Meet the 5% culprit: UV radiation
Only a small portion of the sun’s radiation reaches the earth’s surface
Of this radiation, over half is received as infra-red (heat), nearly 40% as visible light and about 5% as invisible UV radiation. UV radiation that reaches the earth surface is split into two categories, UVA and UVB. All these forms of radiation can contribute to short-term and long-term skin damages.
While providing the best possible protection will always be the central goal for suncare offerings, we also recognize that consumers are increasingly demanding more from the products they use. By harnessing the power of Symrise’s cross-divisional capabilities, we are able to also offer the most appealing scents and the most enjoyable cosmetic textures. Additionally, our regional application laboratories support our customers worldwide in the formulation of sun care products that meet the regional consumer needs.
