Why does a Mexoryl sunscreen gain such a loyal following?
Because the Mexoryl molecule, which is found in Mexoryl SX and Mexoryl XL, is a very effective sun filter. Patented by L’Oreal, the French based cosmetics company, a Mexoryl sunscreen offers broad range protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
When combined with other sun filters such as titanium dioxide, avobenzone (Parsol 1789) and octocrylene, a Mexoryl sunscreen can be formulated into very high SPF formulations as can be found in Anthelios XL SPF 60 or Ombrelle SPF 60 sun cream.
Unlike many other sunscreens on the market, a Mexoryl sunscreen is photostable. Photostability is important because this means that the sunscreen will retain its activity after being exposed to the sun. Very important, because many sunscreens on the market break down after initial exposure to sunlight. So while you think you’re being protected, your sunscreen is in fact not working! Choose a Mexoryl sunscreen and you can be safe in the knowledge that your skin is protected over time.
Because of the combination of effective ingredients, a Mexoryl sunscreen will protect against both UVA and UVB rays. While UVB rays are the ones that lead to sunburn, UVA rays contribute to skin aging - saggy, leathery skin, age spots and wrinkles. In fact, it’s estimated than more than 80% of skin’s aging is caused by sun damage. So invest in the best - choose a Mexoryl sunscreen and reap the rewards of youthful skin years later.
