Appearance and Usage

2.0% - 6.0%

Recommended usage 2-6% EU standards suggest staying under 5%. It will be necessary to dissolve the powder in DI water which you should preserve. Solution should be mixed as follows:

  • 20% Benzophenone-4
  • 79% DI or Distilled water
  • 1% preservative (ideally, the same one already in the lotion formula)

Testing for desired results is recommended but we suggest 1.0% - 3.0% in sprayers, up to 5.0% in aloe gels, and maximum of 10.0% in lotions and conditioners.

Mix until dissolved. Add into formula at 1%.
