A pendant peptide endows a sunscreen with water-resistance

Abstract

Ultraviolet light causes skin cancer. Salicylic acid and other molecular filters absorb damaging radiation but are washed away readily. Conjugation to a collagen mimetic peptide is shown to retain salicylic acid on collagen-containing skin surrogates. This strategy, which is highly modular, could lead to water-resistant sunscreens.
