DSM presents latest data on Parsol SLX.

* DSM Nutritional Products reported new scientific data on skin penetration behavior of Parsol SLX, the first polymeric sunscreen approved for skin protection, at the European Dermatology and Venerology Congress (EADV) 2010 in Gothenburg.

In the scientific study, the behavior of radio-labeled material of Parsol SLX was investigated in a standard design in an in vitro skin penetration study with donated human skin samples exposed over a 24-hour period to a sunscreen product containing 10% Parsol SLX.

The result demonstrates that more than 99.5% of the applied amount of Parsol SLX can be retrieved after a 24-hour exposure period from the skin surface and the stratum corneum. This result supports the concept that polymeric sunscreen actives can be designed and, consistent with other polymeric substances, will show a very low, if any, skin penetration rate.

Overall, Parsol SLX's overall safety profile allows sunscreen manufacturers to design products for sensitive skin, including baby products, with a favorable skin feel.
