Ethylhexyl Salicylate

Also-called-like-this: Octyl Salicylate, Octisalate
What-it-does: sunscreen
Irritancy: 0
Comedogenicity: 0


A colorless to light yellowish oily liquid that works as a UVB (280-320nm) sunscreen filter with a peak absorbance at 306 nm. It's not a strong filter in itself, it's always used in combination with other sunscreen agents to further enhance the SPF and to solubilize other solid UV filters.

It has a good safety profile and is allowed to be used at a max concentration of 5% both in the US and in Europe (10% is allowed in Japan).
