Emollients An emollient is a material which, when applied to the skin makes it feel soft and smooth. Humectants These exhibit hygroscopic behaviour, they can draw in and hold onto large amounts of water.

7 What makes a good moisturiser?
You need to understand the skin type you are formulating for. You need to understand target area It should feel nice on application, not too greasy. It shouldn’t ‘soap up’ It should smell nice, or have no base odour

Delivery vehicles – liposomes, encapsulates

Tanning through darkening of melanin precursors Skin damage – sunburn, premature ageing, skin cancer Free radicals

16 UVA & UVB light UVB – (290-320nm) UVA – (320-400nm)
Responsible for long term damage Can penetrate glass UVB – ( nm) Causes sunburn (erythema)

17 Sunscreens A Sunscreen is the UV light absorbing agent that helps to lower the incidence of dermal malignancies. The function of the sunscreen is the protection of the skin from damaging UV light. Physical sunscreens Chemical Sunscreens
