Octisalate is also known as ethylhexyl salicylate and is a UV light absorber in the UVB range between 290 and 315 nanometers.

This colorless liquid is frequently used as a sunscreen active due to its ability to protect against harmful UV radiation. Normally, it is paired with other sunscreen actives that absorb in the UVA range, in order to create a product with broad-spectrum protection.

In addition, ethylhexyl salicylate works to protect other ingredients from deterioration from exposure to UV light. These sensitive ingredients can include colorants and antioxidants.
