How EltaMD sunscreens work
EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with Zinc Oxide, which is safe for sensitive skin, and block the most comprehensive spectrum of UVA and UVB rays. UVA or aging rays destroy collagen and cells to cause:
- Skin aging
- Skin cancer
- Loss of elasticity
UVB or burning rays cause sunburns and tanning that increase the risk of skin cancer and other disorders.
When used as directed and combined with other sun protection, broad-spectrum EltaMD® sunscreens decrease the risk of skin cancer while also protecting you from sunburn. The UVA and UVB rays reflect and scatter away from your skin to prevent early skin aging caused by the sun.
