Hi
I've seen this study mentioned on theskincareboard and it suggests an SPF of 4-8 is adequate to compensate for any sensitivity caused by the use of acids, but there's no further information.

I'm interested in the details of this study; for example what kinds and strengths of acids were used and what kind of UV index the tests are referring to.

Can anyone add some flesh to this please? TIA, Gaoli

oops! replying to myself.
Finally found the very report, but can't answer the questions until I've read it thoroughly. It's here if anyone else is interested.
