8) Nanocrystalline Sunscreen
Whether you're heading to the islands or the slopes this winter, you may want to slather on a bottle of NuCelle SunSense SPF 30 sunscreen. Its main ingredient is Z-COTE, a substance made with nanotechnology by BASF (nyse: BF - news - people). "Nano-dispersed zinc oxide is the basis of Z-COTE," says BASF's Dieter Distler. The common SPF (sun protection factor) rating system only rates protection against UVB rays. Zinc oxide provides broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays, but its characteristic white pasty goop often leaves sunbathers and lifeguards feeling like they're wearing clown makeup. The nanotechnology in Z-Cote produces a high-purity nanocrystalline zinc oxide, which allows the sunscreen to go on clear. And, to boot, the inorganic Z-COTE can't be absorbed by the skin and won't cause allergic reactions.
