All EltaMD sunscreens offer safe, broad-spectrum ultraviolet (UV) protection to help prevent sunburn, skin cancer, and early skin aging caused by the sun.
How EltaMD Works
Ultraviolet (UV) rays are part of the invisible energy that comes from the sun and UVA (aging) rays account for 95% of our sun exposure. They both can have damaging effects on the skin and contribute to premature aging and skin cancer. UVA rays penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, damaging collagen and cells that cause wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and loss of elasticity. UVB (burning) rays commonly impact the outer layer of the skin and cause sunburns and tanning that increase the risk of skin cancer and other skin disorders. The risk for skin cancer doubles in people who have experienced five or more sunburns. Skin Cancer Foundation (Nov. 2010)
EltaMD sunscreens reflect and scatter UVA and UVB rays away from your skin, protecting your skin. These products help prevent sunburn and, if used as recommended with other sun protection measures, decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun.
All EltaMD sunscreens contain zinc oxide, a natural, mineral compound. Zinc is more photo stable than other chemical ingredients that may degrade due to its ability to maintain its protective capability in the sun. Sunscreens that contain zinc block the broadest spectrum of UVA and UVB rays. Not only does Zinc provide protection from burning and premature appearance of aging and risk of skin cancer, it is safe for even the most sensitive skin types.
