Easy Formulating and Safer Sunscreens

Per the company, this medium enhances ease of use for the formulator. It also minimizes skin absorption for the user, forming a thin, comfortable, water-repellent and protective film on the skin's surface to ensure products remain there.

This reduces the potential for irritation and makes them safer and longer-lasting. Indeed, the company reports Suncare Zen - KT is suitable for the most delicate skin, providing a refreshing and non-greasy experience.
