BASF Sunscreen Simulator

Although we do research in the real world to be inspired by life, there is nothing more practical than a good theory, just like the BASF Sunscreen Simulator, the virtual lab that makes real-life calculations to quickly test your sunscreen formulations. The BASF Sunscreen Simulator enables the estimation of the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) as well as common UVA protection metrics. It helps the formulator to compose an optimal combination of the UV filters in a sunscreen formulation. However, it does not replace actual formulary testing.
