Tris-Biphenyl Triazine

Also-called-like-this: Tinosorb A2B
What-it-does: sunscreen


The newest addition to the Tinosorb sunscreen family, a new generation of sunscreen filters that are not available in the US, only in other parts of the world. This one is so new, that it's EU only at the moment (as of 2016). 

The unique property of Tris-Biphenyl Triazine is that it's the most efficient UVB and UVA2 filter known today. UVA2 (320-340 nm) is a spot that most filters miss, so this guy can help to bridge this common gap and make sunscreen formulas really cover the whole UV spectrum. It's also highly photostable and has high SPF performance at low concentrations. Though it does not provide protection in the UVA1 (340-400 nm) range, it does have a boosting effect there. 

Similar to Trinosorb M, it is a hybrid agent (between chemical and physical sunscreens) and comes in the form of organic micro fine particles.

Show me some proof
