The European Commission approved the use of Methoxypropylamino Cyclohenylidene Ethoxyethylcyanoacetate (CAS number 1419401-88-9) as UV filter, following the conclusions of the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS/1605/19). To the best of our knowledge, this new ingredient is a promising UVA Filter with a λmax of 385 nm.
