La Roche Posay Anthelios sunscreens offer broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection against the full range of UVA and UVB rays. Manufactured in France to exacting standards, this line of sunscreens is widely recommended by dermatologists and used by individuals who seek the best protection from skin damage associated with sun exposure.
La Roche Posay Anthelios contains a patented sun filtering system that incorporates two novel UVA/UVB blocking ingredients – Mexoryl SX and Mexoryl XL. While Mexoryl SX is a water soluble molecule that protects against mid to longer range UVA rays, Mexoryl XL is lipid soluble and protects against both UVB and UVA rays. The combination of the two Mexoryl molecules in La Roche Posay Anthelios sunscreens has been found to offer far greater protection than any one molecule alone. These sunscreens also contain titanium dioxide and avobenzone (Parsol 1789) stabilized with Octocrylene.
Photostability, or the ability for the formulation to maintain its efficacy when exposed to sunlight is another important feature of sunscreens. Unlike many sunscreens that degrade as soon as they are exposed to light, studies have shown that La Roche Posay Anthelios sunscreens maintain their efficacy for as long as 4 to 5 hours after application. Even though it’s recommended that you reapply after 2 hours, you can feel confident that you and your family are protected for hours after application.
Choose from a range of formulations including easy to apply sprays, light fluids and creams for normal and dry skin types. There is even a highly resistant formulation – Anthelios W Gel SPF 40 for outdoor sports use. Anthelios AC SPF 30 has been specially designed for the special concerns of oily and acneic skin. Lastly, the Dermo-Pediatrics range includes an SPF 50+ spray and lotion designed for children’s especially sensitive skin.
Protect you and your family from the short and long term damage associated with exposure to UV rays. Choose La Roche Posay Anthelios sunscreens to fight against sunburn, long term skin damage that leads to wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin as well as some types of skin cancers.
