If I want to identify avobenzone or tinosorb how do I do it? None of my sunscreens mention either of these in the ingredients, though one says it has mexoryl under the name. Anyone one know the chemical names for these?

Parasol 1789 is another name for Avobenzone. It also has one more name I can't think of.

Not sure if Tinosorb goes by another name. I think it's only in Canadian s/s (if that helps)

The chemical name for avobenzone is butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane (BMDM). Tinosorbs M and S also have long chemical names. You can look them up on www.cosmeticscop.com (Ingredient dictionary).

Hi Donna!

It doesn't mention parsol either. All I have on hte ingreds list are long chemically names. Even the mexoryl isn't specifically mentioned in the ingred list, just on the main label.

I think I'll have to not be lazy and google it!

OK, I now have the names. Just have to try and read the minescule writing on the labels now!

I have also found that tinosorb of both varieties is considered far more stable than parsol, but it ain't easy to find it in sunscreens at the moment and when you do they are expensive (£35 for 75ml is typical). But, if they are just applied to hands and face and bust, which are (on me at least!) the only parts which get any exposure then it could be worth it.

I also read that zinc oxide blocks EVERYTHING, but you do look a bit whitish. Fortunately when hte kids go to the beach they don't mind looking a bit freaky so it's heavy physical block for them!

Will look into getting hold of some Aussie Ultraceuticals sunscreen cos that looks the best! Very Happy

If you're living in the UK, the Boots Soltan range of sunscreens are good. The SPF50 Face Protection sunscreen contains both tinosorbs as well as stabilized avobenzone. The ingredient list is all chemical names. Someone reviewed it recently. It's very economical. Boots often have 2 for the price of one and I think the price is about 8 pounds or thereabouts for one 50ml tube. So two for the price of one would be the same price for 100mls. They also do sunscreens for kids, the range called ONCE only needs to be applied once in 6 hours. If you want pure tinosorb sunscreen without the avobenzone, there's a European brand called Galenic which make a SPF50 sunscreen with that formulation.

Thanks m1rox!

I use the soltan range and it is good, but I really want to get something that is nicer to use on my face for going out. I may live in surf city but I hate the beach so that isn't an issue for me!

I'll look into the galenic range as well thank you! A company called crystal clear also does a tinosorb only formulation which looks nice and comparable to the ultraceuticles one, both of which also have loads of anti aging antioxidants and all the other stuff to suck in gullible mutts like me1 Very Happy
