Why broad-spectrum sunscreens matter
Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection. UVB rays are the main cause of sunburn. UVA rays also contribute to skin cancer and premature aging.*

Age-defying sun protection
According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen every day on sun-exposed skin helps prevent premature skin aging.*

Sunscreens for every skin type in every season.
All EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with zinc oxide, a natural mineral compound. Because zinc maintains its protective ability in the sun, it is more photostable than some chemical ingredients that may degrade. Zinc is safe for even the most sensitive skin types. EltaMD does not formulate with avobenzone or oxybenzone.

In every season, skin damaging UV rays can pass through windows.

Top customer reviews

La Roche Posay Anthelios has been my holy grail for years, but at some point, I wanted my sunscreen to have something else, so I switched to ELTA 46 SPF. Amazon is now an authorized retailer, so for those reviews saying there are counterfeit / fake products, it's not like that anymore! ELTA has some of the best ingredients in sunscreen you can imagine. Well, in any skincare product :) If you are looking for a good sunscreen, with extra benefits, go for this one. One of the best things is the coverage and protection. In Europe/Asia, most sunscreens have high rates both for UVA and UVB, but in the US, the main standard is SPF for UVB (rays causing burning, primarily), but not so much for UVA (UVA rays account for up to 95% of the UV radiation reaching the Earth's, and penetrates more deeply in the skin being more associated with aging process). Well, ELTA is one of those strange products (in the good sense) offering high protection for both, it does not leave a white cast, and it has ammaaaazing ingredients: Niacinamide comes high in the formulation (5%, as much as the overpriced NIA-24), and it's an all time star ingredient (antioxidant, brightens skin tone, treats hyperpigmentation, increases collagen, anti-inflammatory., etc), plus vitamin e, hyaluronic acid. Seriously, this lotion is game-changer, and very affordable for how good the formula is!
