CALGARY, Alberta - Aug. 15, 2018 - PRLog -- Aqua+ Skincare working with Standards Council of Canada (SCC) to explore standardization solutions that support our business & help us grow.

A variety of skin care products currently available and/or in production claim to effectively protect the skin from the damaging effects of air pollution. However, the performance of air pollution protection substances can vary considerably from one skin care product to another. Despite claims by manufacturers on product labels, the specifications behind them are often vague and inconsistent, causing confusion in the marketplace. With clear and transparent definitions, and requirements and testing methodologies established, manufacturers will be better able to validate performance; provide higher quality and safer products; and potentially benefit from cost savings through a more effective process. Additionally, consumers will have a better basis for product comparison and purchase.

Aqua+ Skincare is interested in proposing the development of a new international standard - Air Pollution Protection Factor (APPF). The standard would provide a means to test air pollution protection claims for skin care products, which consumers depend on when making purchasing decisions. The proposal will specify a method for the in vivo determination of the Air Pollution Protection Factor (APPF) for air pollution skin care products. This method will provide a basis for the evaluation of products containing a component able to protect human skin from particulate matter (PM 2.5).  If accepted, the standard will be developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Aqua+ Skincare has developed a white paper, entitled Review of PM2.5 and Air Pollution Protection Factor (APPF) to Support Standardization of Testing Proposal, to raise awareness of this important issue.
