This breakthrough sunscreen ingredient provides far better protection than commonly used UVA filters such as Oxybenzone, Titanium Dioxide or Parsol 1789. Used in Europe since 1993, Mexoryl received long awaited FDA approval in 2006 and is sold in the US as Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Sunscreen with Mexoryl SPF 15 (apx. $29 for 3.5 oz.). This product combines the sunscreen ingredient Parsol® 1789* with Mexoryl™ SX (ecamsule) for optimum protection.
Dermatologists are crazy about this product because it has the highest protection against harmful broad UVA and UVB rays (short and long wavelengths), it's the most complete broad-spectrum protection, it's the first sunscreen approved by the FDA in 18 years and it provides 24 hour protection! Check it out at amazon.com or drugstore.com. If the product's a tad pricey for you, save it for the most sun exposed spots including your face, chest and hands (and your scalp if you're a baldie), and use other dependable yet less expensive sunscreens for the rest of you.
