Organic and inoraganic UV-filter molecules can generate free radicals during UV-radiation. Whereas organic UV-filters are marked by their degradation under UV-light, inorganic filters are marked by their photocatalytic reactions. The generation of free radicals inside a cosmetic formulation leads to the de-stabilization of the entire cosmetic preparation. Antioxidants can help to overcome this problem, neutralizing the UV- induced free radicals. Polyphenolic compounds, as Green tea extracts, are efficient radical quenchers. The amount of radicals generated with and without the addition of antioxidants can be quantified by Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectroscopy and is expressed by the Radical Generationg Factor (RGF) view less
