UVA protection to help prevent the effects of sun damage:
Anthelios 40 is a unique sunscreen that combines Parsol® 1789 (avobenzone) and an innovative ingredient, Mexoryl SX (ecamsule), to help provide:
- UVA protection (short and long wavelengths)
- Broad UVA/UVB protection in a formula with patented technology.
Anthelios 40 helps provide protection from UVA rays.
How does Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) protect skin from UVA rays?
Parsol® 1789 (avobenzone) is very effective at the midpoint of the UVA spectrum, but provides less protection against short UVA wavelengths. Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) provides peak efficacy against these short UVA rays. The combination of Parsol® 1789 (avobenzone) and Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) helps provide UVA protection.
Octocrylene, Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) and Parsol® 1789 (avobenzone) absorb UV rays; titanium dioxide absorbs, reflects, and scatters UV light.
