DSM Personal Care makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

PARSOL® SLX is a silicone based UV-B absorber. This colorless-to-pale yellow viscous liquid integrates easily with the oil phase of sunscreen formulation. PARSOL® SLX is the first polymeric UV-B filter consisting of chromophores attached to a silicone backbone, and is an effective photostabilizer for PARSOL® 1789. When combined with PARSOL® HS this product can achieve a very high SPF (>30), enabling day care or sunscreen formulations that leave a dry, silky touch on the skin. PARSOL® SLX added to rinse-off and leave-on hair products delivers multiple benefits including prevention of colour fading, gloss enhancement and conditioning. It is NOT approved by the US FDA as an active OTC sunscreen ingredient but can be used in hair care applications.
