Item # 1024, Avobenzone

INCI Name: Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane

CAS Numbers: 70356-09-1


Avobenzone is a white to pale yellow, slightly aromatic powder. It is oil-soluble and used in sunscreen products to absorb the full spectrum of UVA rays. Its ability to absorb ultraviolet light over a wider range of wavelengths than many organic sunscreen agents has led to its use in many commercial preparations marketed as "broad spectrum" sunscreens.

Avobenzone is the most widely used sunscreen in the world. It is used in sun protection products, hair care, skin care, and cosmetics.
