Designed to be lightweight and joyful while ensuring sun protection.


  • Z-COTE® Sheer a naturally derived, broad-spectrum inorganic UV filter dispersion with sheer application and high compatibility for ease in formulating both daily and beach wear protection products
  • Verdessence™ Alginate a natural versatile polymer based on algae. It can be used as a rheology modifier, sensory enhancer, or setting polymer. Perfect for natural formulations
  • Verdessence™ Xanthan a cold-processable thickener derived from 100% renewable feedstock to deliver stability to this emulsion
  • Emulgade® Verde 10MS a versatile, naturally derived, non-ethoxylated emulsifier that creates lamellar structures and performs very well compared to EO-based emulsifiers
  • Cetiol® C 5C a fast-spreading emollient that is designed as a good alternative to volatile silicones with the same light, silky feel. It supports the incorporation of powders and enhances the solubility of crystalline UV filters

  1. Combine phase A with prop mixing and begin heating to 75°C
  2. Combine phase B with prop mixing and begin heating to 80°C
  3. Add phase C to B at 60°C. Continue prop mixing until uniform.
  4. At temp, add phase B/C to A- and homogenize at 5000rpm. Try to incorporate air. Batch will thicken.
  5. Transfer to prop mix and begin cooling. Incorporate air as cooling.
  6. Below 45°C, add phase D. Mix until uniform
  7. Adjust pH to 7.2 using 25% citric acid solution.
  8. Drop below 35°C
  9. 24 hours later, re-adjust pH down to 7.2 with citric acid solution
