Opal-Detect | Chemical Sensor Array
Opal Protect is an eco-friendly material that provides broad spectrum protection from the hazards of UV light.

Opal Protect is designed to block UVA light, which is largely responsible for UV-related skin aging and skin cancer. However, many sunscreens do not substantially block UVA light, because only a few materials are available, and many are harmful to the environment.

Opal Protect is made from biodegradable and environmentally friendly materials, and exhibits low haze, significantly reducing white cast typically seen in other inorganic sunscreens. Opal Protect is also an adjustable platform and can be designed to reflect other wavelengths including UVB.
