    Hi All,

    I’m looking at making an effective sunscreen lotion based on a general lotion formula, but with the addition of benzophenone-3 and benzophenone-4. I have come up with the below formula (1 Kg batch)

    Stearic Acid - 20gm
    Glycerol monostearate - 20gm
    Cetostearyl alcohol - 10gm
    Propyl Paraben - 1gm
    Butylated hydroxytoluene - 1gm
    benzophenone-3 - 5gm

    Wheat Germ Oil - 2gm
    Olive Oil - 3gm
    Isopropyl myristate - 4gm
    petrolatum - 4gm
    mineral oil - 70gm

    Glycerine - 30gm
    Propylene glycol - 20gm
    Triethanolamine - 10gm
    Dimethicone - 2.5gm
    D-Panthenol - 2.5gm
    Benzophenone-4 - 10gm
    Methyl Paraben - 2gm
    ethoxylated lanolin - 1.5gm

    Water (total) - 844.50 gm

    Would the above be effective as a sunscreen lotion, which is also moisturising.

    Thanks in advance for the feedback.
