La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX SPF 15
Finally, approved by the FDA. Anthelios SX is a daily moisturizing cream with an SPF 15 sunscreen.
The combination of these three UV active ingredients is complementary and their selection for the product provides continuous protection across the entire UV spectrum (290 - 400 nm range), with high protection in the UVA range, i.e., ecamsule (Mexoryl™SX) is the "gap-filler" in the UV spectrum between octocrylene and avobenzone curves.
- Octocrylene protects against UVB rays.
- Avobenzone protects against long UVA rays and is stabilized by Octocrylene.
- Mexoryl™ SX is photostable and protects against short UVA rays to allow the most complete broad spectrum protection with the highest UVA coverage.
What is MEXORYL™ SX?
MEXORYL™ SX is the most effective organic UV filter that protects against UVA rays (maximum absorption at 344nm) with high photostability, a key factor in sunscreen protection efficacy. This high photostability means the sunscreen will maintain a higher UVA protective ability longer and not degrade as quickly as other UVA filters when exposed to the sun.
