UVA protection with Mexoryl SX (ecamsule). Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. PABA-free. Light, non-greasy. Suitable for sensitive skin. Anthelios 40 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 SC (ecamsule) helps provide UVA protection. Octocrylene, Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) and Parsol 1789 (avobenzone) absorb UV rays; titanium dioxide absorbs, reflects, and scatters UV light.
