    Contact e.g. BASF, and ask for starting formulations for SPF30

    there is no simple answer to this, simply because the SPF you achieve in practise depends on how efficiently your formula acts as a filter, which in turn depends on how the product flows under shear

    if you can get hold of them, try using encapsulated UV filters, as they take a few variables out of the equation and are supposedly more reliable and consistent
