Bisoctrizole is a broad spectrum ultraviolet radiation absorber, absorbing UVB as well as UVA rays. It also reflects and scatters UV. Bisoctrizole is a hybrid UV absorber. It's produced as small particles (< 200 nm), like microfine zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. And it is organic like most sunscreen actives. It is added to the water phase of a sunscreen as a 50% suspension, while mineral micropigments are usually added to the oil phase.
Unlike some other organic sunscreen actives, it shows no estrogenic effects in vitro.
