Comprehensive protection of light and oxygen sensitive materials can be acchieved via typical home care formulations. This enables the consumer either to implement or to refresh/increase the protection of sensitive substrates and surfaces. It was shown that - an UV absorbing film can be formed by typical home care formulations if UV absorbers are incorporated. - Antioxidants improve the stability of light and oxygen sensitive materials such as, but not limited to, wood. They can be synergetic in conjunction with UV absorbers. - Hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS) are also very effectively protecting substrates like wood from light induced degradation, as results have shown.
