This looks very interesting and I wonder to what degree other actives and emolients could be added to produce a near perfect sunscreen.

This follows on from my last thread really. What are your thoughts Dr T? Is this the custom sunscreen we've been waiting for? lol

These look promising and might be compatible with physical sunscreens but there isn't enough data on their long-term use. They are also only available in Europe but not in North America.

Generally speaking, considering the challenges of using even a perfect sunscreen correctly and consistently, one would usually get a greater benefit from limiting exposure to the sun (particularly of face and neck) than by trying to make one's sunscreen absolutely perfect.

Keep in mind, however, that if you eliminate all of skin's UV exposure, either via sunscreens or thru avoidance, make sure that you are not vitamin D deficient either via vitamin D supplements, vitamin D fortified foods, or getting some sun exposure in less vulnerable areas of the body (while protecting face and neck). There is also a vitamin D blood test that can be used to determine one's vitamin D status.

I personally supplement with a lot of Vitamin D in order to achieve clinically adequate levels in the blood.

Why do you believe it's so hard to correctly and consistently apply even a good sunscreen? I apply mine every morning in abundance so I'm sure there are no 'holes' in its protection once applied.

I am not saying that it is "that hard" but what I am saying is that many people are often not diligent enough to do so consistently -- too busy perhaps, or too stressed, or too distracted, etc. If you are different in that regard -- good for you!
