Algal UV protecting compounds as cosmetic sunscreens

In recent years algae have become important as a source of active compounds in natural cosmetics. This summer we started the project: "Sun Tec - UV-Schutz auf Algenbasis" in cooperation with the private company oceanBASIS in which we aim to create a sunscreening product based on the natural screening pigments found in green macroalgae.
