La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Cream SPF 15

La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Cream SPF 15 with Mexoryl SX,  3.4-Ounces

La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Cream SPF 15 with Mexoryl SX

La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Cream is a light, non-greasy, fragrance-free daily use moisturizer with sunscreen that combines Parsol 1789 (avobenzone) and an innovative ingredient, Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) to help provide UVA protection. It is allergy-tested, PABA-free, suitable for sensitive skin and offers 24-hour hydration. Anthelios SX has complete broad spectrum protection.

 

  • Anthelios SX is the moisturizer with the highest protection against harmful UVA rays
  • The most complete broad-spectrum protection and the first sunscreen approved by the FDA in 18 years
  • Light, non-greasy, fragrance-free and PABA-free formula provides 24-hour hydration
  • Parsol 1789 (avobenzone) protects against long UVA rays and is stabilized by Octocrylene
  • Mexoryl SX is photostable on its own and protects against short UVA rays

 

Anthelios SX contains MEXORYL™ SX, the most effective FDA-approved organic filter designed to protect against short UVA rays (maximum absorption at 344nm) with high photostability, a key factor in sunscreen protection efficacy. This high photostability means the sunscreen will maintain a higher UVA protective ability longer and not degrade as quickly as other FDA approved UVA filters when exposed to the sun.

I have dry skin, and this works perfectly as a daily moisturizer. It even removes a step from my routine (before I would apply moisturizer then sunscreen, this is effectively both). It doesn’t melt into my mouth.
It does make my face shiny –there’s no getting around it- but that doesn’t bother me.
My mother hates the gunky texture of the SPF 15, and she uses the SPF 50 “fluide extreme” which is a drier formula, over a moisturizer. She warns that you have to let your moisturizer fully absorb before applying the sunscreen or else it all pills up and rubs off your face like eraser sweepings.

UVA rays are contant throughout the year, UVB rays are based on actual intensity of sunlight. This is the best UVA sun protection on the market because of the combination of Memorex AND Avobenzone. To increase the UVB (SPF from 15 to 50) you would need to add either Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, or Oxybenzone for UVB protection.

In America, I believe the FDA has not approved the combined use of Avobenzone with Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide together in the same sunscreen. I don’t see why Oxybenzone, Avobenzone, and Memorex SR can’t be combined, perhaps too many chemicals in one lotion imposes unforesen harm. This is why in order to raise the SPF and keep the sunscreen safe by FDA standards, it’s either Avobenzone or sacrificing a little UVA to up the UVB.

During winter, the UVB threat is lower than summertime, but the UVA threat is merely unchanged, so use this in winter. I hope this helps.

I have stage 3B Melanoma, the most deadly of skin cancers. I started using this sunscreen shortly after diagnosis. It is wonderful. I am a golfer and camper and am still out in the sun a lot. I have never gotten any sunburn since I started using this. My biggest complaint about sunscreen was that it made my skin greasy. This does not and at SPF 15, it completely protects me. My 89-year old Mom started using it also, after being an avid Clinique user for many years. She is so impressed.
