Abstract

The research summarised in this report suggests that the two UVB-absorbers, o-PABA and 2-EHMC, have different modes of protection against UV radiation-induced immunosuppression, carcinogenesis and histological alterations, that appear to be independent of their SPF values, within experimental limits. The UVB-absorber o-PABA appears offer a valuable level of protection against photocarcinogenesis.
