At wavelengths of 292,5 - 372,5 nm for measurements of values % Te and % Tp. While for SPF values at wavelengths of 290 - 320 nm. The best results obtained were at concentration of 500 ppm, with a value of % Te 1,78 which is an extra protection category and the value of % Tp 1,27 which is the sunblock category, and the value of SPF 16 which is the ultra category.
