UA-invented sunscreen licensed to leading aloe vera supplier

The novel formulation binds oxybenzone—the active ingredient in most over-the-counter sunscreens—in such a way that it does not seep into the skin. Douglas Loy, a professor who holds appointments in Chemistry and Biochemistry in the Colleges of Science and Medicine – Tucson, as well as a faculty position in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in the College of Engineering, worked with graduate student Stephanie Tolbert to develop the formulation.

Blocking the absorption of oxybenzone into skin would help resolve public concern over the use of the compound, which filters out ultraviolet light and is used in many commercial topical sunscreens. The American Association of Dermatology says oxybenzone is safe, but public concerns have been raised about its effects when absorbed by users.

Tech Launch Arizona, the office of the UA that commercializes inventions stemming from research, worked with Loy to protect the intellectual property and license the invention to MexiAloe Laboratories. MexiAloe, headquartered in Campeche, Mexico, is one of the largest suppliers of aloe vera in North America, and its parent company, Novamex, is one of the largest distributors of Mexican products in the United States.

Did you know that Palmer's cocoa butter formula has very little actual cocoa butter in it?

Looking at the ingredients right in front of me I can see that the first ingredient is cocoa 'extract' (whatever that is) and cocoa butter is actually fourth. Mineral oil (liquid parrafin) is second, and is NOT a quality product.
After discovering

This doesn't surprise me, these 'mainstream' products are often nothing more than cheap sh*t with some name or packaging to make them sound much better. I like the idea of making my own because I don't like waste (through packaging) or a lot of unnecessary

"the first ingredient is cocoa 'extract' "

That being the first ingredient, means there is actually a lot of it in there.

That is really cool! I didn't know one could do that!
So where would one go to get the scented essential oils of her choice?

I wonder how profitable you would be to market this SAFER product?

Thanks for the info!
