Hi have queried with the them and they have advised this recarding the fact the product has octocrylene

Thanks for your comments. We have had the product dermatologically tested and whilst what you are saying is true the Optisol technology is designed to prevent the breakdown of BP-3 and that coupled with the low concentration 1.5% of the ingredient the likelihood of any penetrating through the skin is low. The BP-3 acts as a triplet state quencher for the BMDM and stabilises the BMDM along with the inorganic optisol that prevents free radical generation the sunscreen system is incredibly stable.

So in answer to your question no this does not cause high amounts of free radicals and the external testing that has been done is the dermatological, water resistancy, SPF, Boots Star Rating..

We have avoided parabens and fragrance which have been isolated to create adverse skin reaction
