Analysis of the percentage of water resistance for solar protections according to ISO 18861

You wish to analyze the percentage of water resistance for your solar protections according to ISO 18861

Why analyze the water resistance percentage for your cosmetic products according to ISO 18861?

First of all, ISO 18861 is a standard for the analysis of sun protection products. 

This standard stipulates a method for determining the percentage of water resistance by comparing the sun protection factor (SPF) before immersion in water (static SPF) and after a fixed period of immersion in water (wet SPF). This standard therefore allows us to see to what extent sunscreens retain their protective capacity depending on their interaction with the aqueous medium. 

Thus, determining the percentage of water resistance of your sunscreens according to ISO 18861 is a key step in the control and production of your sunscreen products.
