Anthelios SX

 

Anthelios SX is an over-the-counter moisturizer used to help prevent sunburn and to help provide protection from UVA [short and long wave] and UVB rays.

Anthelios SX, made by L’Oreal, protects against both UVA and UVB rays with an SPF of 15.

Anthelios SX contains a mix of three active ingredients:

  1. Ecamsule - marketed in Europe and Canada as Mexoryl SX since 1993.
  2. Mexoryl is well-known all over the world to protect skin from wrinkle-causing UVA rays. According to Dr. Vincent DeLeo, chairman of dermatology at Columbia University, Mexoryl " produces a product which gives us almost perfect protection against sunshine".
  3. Octocrylene - absorbs ultraviolet light, protecting skin from the harmful effects of exposure to sunlight. The ethylhexanol portion is a fatty alcohol, adding emollient and oil-like (water resistant) properties.
