Avobenzone  | Parasol 1789 *

 

Avobenzone, also commonly known as Parsol 1789 is a critical sunscreen ingredient that protects against photodamage and premature aging of the skin from exposure to UVA light.

FDA approved Parsol 1789 (avobenzone) in April 1997 for use in over the counter sun care products in the United States.

Parsol 1789 has been widely used in European, Canadian, and Australian sun and skin care products since the early 1980s.

Subsequently, American pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies introduced products containing Avobenzone [Parsol 1789] to provide broad spectrum UVB/UVA protection against skin damage and premature skin aging.

Parsol 1789 is a registered trademark of the Givaudan-Roure Corporation, a member of the Roche Group.
