Anthelios SX helps provide protection from UVA rays. How does Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) protect skin from UVA rays? Parsol 1789 (avobenzone) is very effective at the midpoint of the UVA spectrum, but provides less protection against short UVA wavelengths. Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) provides peak efficacy against these short UVA rays. The combination of Parsol 1789 (avobenzone) and Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) helps provide UVA protection. Sun alert: Limiting sun exposure, wearing protective clothing, and using sunscreens may reduce the risks of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects of the sun. Even if you do not burn, repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin. UVA rays, a daily skin concern: UVA rays have been shown to penetrate deeper into the skin, damaging its elasticity and contributing to premature skin aging. UVB rays, also a skin concern: UVB rays cause sunburn and also contribute to premature skin aging. SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, is the degree of protection a sunscreen offers against UVB rays.
