Eun Hwa Lim, Ji Young Hwang, Hyun-Jung Kim
This research examines the importance of sunscreen use as well as the public awareness and the use of sunscreen that has become prevalent due to the growth of the sunscreen market, and also the international cosmetics market in regard to the trend of sunscreen and the development of natural domestic materials for them. The current state of sunscreen use and its changes have been examined by looking into the researches on sunscreen from 2010 until now, and by analyzing the trend of the international sunscreen market specifically on i) the use of extracts such as natural and organic materials, ii) the researches on the effects of the raw materials and processing technology on skin, and iii) the emergence of ethical products along with brand image improvement efforts, some of domestic researches on the direction of the domestic sunscreen industry and the development of natural materials in 2012~2013 were reviewed. As a result, the effect of the product containing natural extracts, and its quality as a safe and anti-oxidant product were examined. The sunscreen industry is a promising market with the environmental factors and the increase of aesthetic desire of the public. It is regarded to be necessary for domestic industry to refer to the international flow and regulations in order to internationalize the domestic market as well as to help stabilize it. In addition, it would be necessary to solve the known problems such as stickiness, texture, and white turbidity phenomenon that have been continuously posed as problem by the consumer reviews through R&D, and for the inconvenience that is involved when re-applying the sunscreen, it would be necessary to look for ways to facilitate re-application of sunscreen rather than to increase SPF (Sun Protection Factor) in order to enhance the lasting time of the sunscreen.
