EltaMD sunscreens help prevent sunburn and reduce the risk of skin cancer as well as premature skin aging caused by the sun, when used with other sun protection measures, such as clothing, hats and seeking shade. EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are noncomedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free. Zinc oxide is a naturally occurring mineral compound that’s safe for even the most sensitive skin types. Zinc oxide maintains its protective quality in the sun, so it is more photostable than some chemical ingredients that can breakdown.
Features & Benefits
EltaMD broad-spectrum sunscreens provide safe and effective broad-spectrum ultraviolet (UV) protection against both UVA and UVB light. UV rays are part of the invisible energy that comes from the sun. UVA rays make up 95% of our sun exposure and cause skin aging and skin cancer. UVA rays have the ability to penetrate deep into the skin layers, resulting in damage to collagen and cells, leading to wrinkling, discoloration, and loss of elasticity. UVB rays primarily affect the outer layer of the skin. UVB exposure causes sunburns and tanning that increase the risk of skin cancer.
Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily can help to prevent wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, as well as reduce the risk for skin cancer. With the range of available EltaMD sunscreens, it’s simple to find one that’s right for your skin type and lifestyle.
Skin Type Match
EltaMD sunscreens are appropriate for all skin types, and do a great job in safely protecting your skin from the sun.
