Photoprotection and stabilisation of avobenzone

Avobenzone (4-tert-butyl -4’-methoxydibenzoylmethane) is the most widely used UVA filter in the world. Its complex photophysics and photochemistry continues to be a subject of study by researchers. Avobenzone in its ground state is not one but two species called tautomers. There’s an enol tautomer, and a diketo tautomer, often called simply the keto form. Avobenzone’s diketo tautomer is always present and easily accessible to solar UV radiation. With its high triplet energy the diketo tautomer may exhibit high reactivity towards bio-molecules. In environments with sufficient concentration of O2, significant quenching of the diketo triplet by O2 and generation of singlet oxygen is highly probable. To prevent or reduce bio-molecule reactions and singlet oxygen generation by Avobenzone’s diketo triplets, a triplet quenchers are usually added to the formulation.

Since the 60s of the last century, the chemical compositions of fat and water-soluble extractive substances of kelp have been studied. A set of technical documentation have been developed and together with the leading medical centers in Leningrad, Moscow and other regions of Russia the directions of their use as useful additives for oral and cosmetic procedures. Currently, substances from edible brown seaweeds, the technology of their production and use are the property of Russia that protected by patents and trademarks.

Recently, polysaccharides have been actively used in cosmetics a group of natural polymers with properties of thickeners, suspensions and conditioning additives. Water-soluble polysaccharides of brown algae will be effective in the composition of cosmetic compositions, aimed at fighting inflammation, moisture loss and stimulating cellular immunity. The main recommendations for the use of polysaccharides are in moisturizing cosmetics, in day creams with a protective function, including UV radiation, hair products and scalp.

InterBytHim-2018: 12 years from raw materials to final product!

In February, the International Specialized Exhibition «InterBytChim» was held in Moscow. This is the only international specialized industry exhibition in the post Soviet period for enterprises that works in the production and sale of household chemical goods and personal care products. And all 12 years the motto of the exhibition is «From raw materials to the final product!», that accurately underlines its meaning because here you can see both the technological process of production and its sale. Here we present manufacturers and suppliers of raw materials, equipment, packaging and, of course, finished products. In our traditional survey, we want to show the unique diversity of companies and proposals that were represented at this very important exhibition venue.


Secondary alkane sulphonates
D.А. Merkulov, Ph.D. (Chemistry)

Secondary alkane sulphonate are mixture of isomers and homologues of sodium salts of sulfonated n-paraffins, given anionic surface-active properties. The variety of important application properties allows us to consider secondary alkane sulfonates as multifunctional, economical and green raw components of household chemicals and cosmetics.
