Look For It: Mexoryl SX

Sunscreen has been in the news a lot lately. Labeling and SPF ratings are confusing. Just to add to the pot, I have a new ingredient for you to search out when it comes to sunscreen - Mexoryl SX.

Although mexoryl, aka ecamsule, has been used in European sunscreens since the early 90's, the FDA just recently approved it for use in the States. Mexoryl is an organic filter that protects against UVA rays!!!! Making it a key ingredient for wide spectrum sunscreens - remember the SPF ratings are just for UVB rays. In fact, mexoryl is the best thing on the market for blocking UVA rays and it lasts longer than other UVA blockers.

Look for L'Oreal's Anthelios SX and Laroche-Posay Anthelios which is considered one of the best broad spectrum sunscreens on the market today.

A few years back, my mom brought a load of Laroche-Posay Anthelios back from france on the advice of her dermatologist. She loves the stuff. I tried it a few times, but it made me break out in itchy red patches!
