SunCat® MTA is an encapsulated blend of organic chemical filters that provides high UV protection, is non-irritating to the skin and is very easy to formulate with.
Offering full protection across the UVA/UVB spectrum from 280 to 400 nm it also works in synergy with low levels of Titanium Dioxide to give enhanced protection.
No guesswork is required as the SPF can be accurately predicted by reference to a formulation chart. The level of sun protection is directly proportional to the amount of SunCat MTA® present and is very reliable.
Safe on the skin
Due to its large particle size SunCat MTA® is unable to penetrate the skin and therefore significantly reduces the risk of irritation compared to traditional UV filters.
Easy to use
SunCat MTA is water dispersible and significantly easier to formulate with compared to traditional UV filters and can be added to most formulation with simply stirring and is suitable for both hot and cold mix formulations.
Suitable for all applications
SunCat MTA® is suitable for a wide range of sun care application and removes the need to stock a variety of different UV filters. It also offers exceptional stability both in its neat form and in end-products.
