Octisalate, also known as ethylexyl salicylate or octyl salicylate, is an ester of salicylic acid and 2-ethylexanol and is an oil soluble active ingredient with ultraviolet B (UVB) absorbing properties used in sunscreen formulations. Octisalate, however, does not protect against ultraviolet A (UVA) rays. Salicylate sunscreens may therefore be used to prevent sunburn but are unlikely to prevent drug-related or other photosensitivity reactions associated with UVA light; thus, combination with a benzophenone may give some added protection. Octisalate is also used as a fragrance ingredient.
