Behind the Product

EltaMD® sunscreens are formulated with zinc oxide, a natural compound that blocks the widest spectrum of UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays damage the outer layer of the skin, causing sunburns and tanning. UVA rays, meanwhile, cause damage on a deeper level, penetrating deep into the skin and affecting cells and collagen. Proper application of Elta MD sunscreen provides the user protection against burning, premature aging and risk of skin cancer.
