Why We Love EltaMD Sunscreens
EltaMD sunscreens help prevent sunburn and decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun, when used with other sun protection measures. EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are noncomedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free. With several sunscreens for all skin types, EltaMD is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation as effective for your daily facial sunscreen.
How It Works
UVA rays from the sun penetrate deeply into skin layers, damaging collagen and cells. UVA rays account for 95% of our sun exposure. UVB rays are the burning rays that affect mostly the outer layers of the skin. This causes sunburn and tanning that increase the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging.
EltaMD sunscreen products deflect and scatter the UVA and UVB rays from your skin, preventing and protecting you from sunburn. Made with zinc oxide, a mineral that naturally has a protective ability in the sun, it maintains its efficacy longer than other chemical materials that may degrade. Zinc sunscreens block the widest spectrum of UV rays and is safe for even the most sensitive skin types.
It’s important to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day in order to prevent skin cancer, early skin aging, wrinkling, and loss of elasticity. EltaMD sunscreens are formatted to fit your skin type and your lifestyle and as a zinc sunscreen, offer complete protection from UVA and UVB sun damage.
EltaMD provides a variety of Facial sunscreens targeted to specific skin types. With SPF coverage ranging from 30 to 50, EltaMD products are available as tinted, clear and designed for sports and lips as well with the UV Sports and UV Lip Balm products.
