Finally available in the USA, Anthelios SX is a powerful moisturizing sunscreen from La Roche-Posay, one of France's leading skin care companies. Anthelios SX combines three sunscreens, including Mexoryl SX, the first sun filter approved by the FDA in 18 years.
Mexoryl SX is the first effective photostable UVA absorber. That means that unlike other sun filters, it does not degrade when exposed to the sun. Mexoryl SX absorbs the sun's radiation and accelerates to an excited state. It then releases the absorbed energy into the environment as harmless energy and returns to its stable state, ready to absorb more UV energy and protect the skin. This gives Anthelios SX a unique advantage over other sunscreens - it keeps protecting your skin at a high level for a longer period of time, even 5 hours after application.
Anthelios SX also provides greater protection against UVA rays, the sun rays responsible for over 80% of skin aging and linked to skin cancer. Up to 95% of the UV rays that reach the skin are UVA rays. Unlike UVB rays, which are responsible for tanning and burning, UVA rays fluctuate very little throughout the day, and are even present on cloudy days. UVA rays also fluctuate little throughout the year, meaning that even in winter, when sunscreens are often discarded, they're still reaching your skin. UVA rays can even pass through glass to reach us when we're indoors. If that wasn't enough, UVA rays also penetrate deeper into the skin. Whereas UVB rays are blocked by the stratum corneum and allow affect the Epidermis, UVA can penetrate down to the Hypodermis, causing long-term hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and loss of elasticity. They also suppress the skin's immune system, increasing the likelihood of developing skin cancer. Anthelios SX provides total protection against UVA rays, keeping your skin safe throughout the years.
Anthelios SX is a light, non-greasy, fragrance-free sunscreen that is allergy-tested and PABA-free, making it suitable for sensitive skin. Anthelios SX offers 24-hour hydration along with the most complete broad-spectrum protection.
