  • Alternative to Oxybenzone to protect natural ingredients from breaking down?

    Posted by Anonymous on May 25, 2015 at 7:26 am

    Hi there,

    I need help finding a UVA/UVB blocker to protect the “natural” ingredients in my product from breaking down in the sunlight. Mainly looking to prolong the effectiveness of some essential oils and carrier oils. Its for an outdoors-y product.
    Oxybenzone has a bad wrap. Can I use micronized titanium dioxide instead?

    My products contain Tinogard TS or similar. I don’t think TiO2 will work well for that case.
