p-Aminobenzoic acid (PABA) is one of the first widely available organic sunscreen ingredient. PABA suffers from low dissolution and low intestinal permeability. In this study we aimed to improve the oral absorption of PABA by a chemicals approach represented by its ester prodrugs as well as a formulation approach represented by liquid crystals.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
