Homosalate Usage 

Homosalateis anorganic compoundused in somesunscreens.

It is anesterformed fromsalicylic acidand 3,3,5-trimethylcyclohexanol, a derivative ofcyclohexanol.

Contained in 45% of U.S. sunscreens, it is used as a chemical UV filter.

The salicylic acid portion of the molecule absorbsultravioletrays with a wavelength from 295 nm to 315 nm, protecting the skin from sun damage.

Thehydrophobiccyclohexanol portion provides greasiness that prevents it from dissolving in water.
