What is it about?

The author discussed some research on how lipid nanoparticles have been encapsulating sunscreen agents. Exposure to sunlight is a key element in the aetiology of the gradual undesired changes in the skin look and physiology caused by UV rays present in the sunshine; hence evaluating sunscreen activity is an essential aspect of the cosmetic business. The author also adressed some of the in vitro and in vivo assessments of sunscreens.

Why is it important?

The review presented the various in vitro and in vivo methods for characterising sunscreen formulations. Also, novel UV protectants must be used to test their protection factor in the widespread usage of sunscreens with high sun protection factors.


The perspective behind this was to know about the useful, practical, and relevant tools for determining sun and skin care products in vitro and in vivo.
