Triazine diethyl butamidotriazone is a synthetic UV filter used in sun care products to provide protection against UVB rays. Other ingredients in the class of synthetic UV filters include bis-ethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyl triazine, butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane, ethylhexyl salicylate, ethylhexyl triazone, homosalate, octinoxate, octisalate and octocrylene.
Triazine diethyl butamidotriazone is a synthetic sunscreen agent which supports SPF protection in sun care formulations due to its ability to absorb UVB and some UVA rays (with peak absorption seen at 310nm). It is oil soluble, highly photo stable and requires relatively low concentrations to achieve high SPF values. It's particularly suitable for water-repellent and water-resistant formulations.
As with other synthetic UV filters, it works by absorbing UV light in the outer layers of the epidermis, then converting it into heat (to neutralise the energy which can lead to cell damage), and scattering it away from the body.
