Maximum scattering occurs for wavelengths twice as large as the clusters

Make the clusters smaller (100 nm or less) and they wont scatter visible light

Lets Look at Some Real Data

Lets Look at Some Real Data

Three sunscreens were tested for scattering with different wavelengths of light

One contains nanosized inorganic ingredients

One contains traditional inorganic ingredients

One contains organic ingredients

Can you answer these three questions:

Which one is which and how do you know?

Will each one appear white or clear on your skin?

What size (approximately) are the clusters in each sunscreen?

In Summary

In Summary

Nanoparticle sunscreen ingredients are small inorganic clusters that:

Provide good UV protection by absorbing both UVB and UVA light

Appear clear on our skin because they are too small to scatter visible light
