Modern Sunscreen Formulation – Is it possible to please everyone?
Instructed by: Mark Chandler and Julian Hewitt

  • Tentative? Final?
  • Formulating for reef (and local government) safety
  • Formulating with a growing number of actives tied behind our backs
  • Doing more with less
  • Can we finally start to work together? (inorganics and organics, at least)
  • Making sunscreen actives stay put – Volume I
  • Making sunscreen actives stay put – Volume II
  • Remembering that this is about human health and well-being
  • Taking it all in and seeing the big picture
