More than ever, consumers and regulatory agencies are focused on the potential damage of UV radiation to skin and to overall health. Ashland’s Escalol™ UV filters can help formulators achieve broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB radiation. 

Escalol™ UV absorbers are used in an increasing number of cosmetic formulations to protect the skin. Within the Escalol line there are many options for both UVB and UVA ranges, with our most recent addition – Escalol™ S UV filter– offering broad protection across UVA and UVB.
