Octocrylene 10% is an organic compound and ester formed by the condensation of a diphenyl cyanoacrylate with 2-ethyl hexanol (a fatty alcohol, adding emollient and oil-like, water-resistant properties), used as an active ingredient in sunscreens because of its ability to absorb UVB and short-wave UVA rays and protect the skin from direct DNA damage (not proven safe for pregnancy and may cause allergic reactions to those with sensitive skin).
For this product to be effective it should contain 10% active ingredients with a minimum of 5 patented, clinically proven ingredients such as Pentavitin, Glucare S 2%, Argireline NP, Trylagen PCB, and Stay-C 50.
