Sun exposure can be dangerous for the skin and can lead to sunburn, oxidative stress, DNA damage, photo-aging, allergies, hyperpigmentation, and in some cases, skin cancer. Organic UV filters developed to date can protect against UVA wavelengths up to 370 nm, but cannot show sufficient effect in the 380-400 nm range. Harmful rays, called ultra-long UVA and representing 30% of all UV rays reaching our skin, can reach deep into the skin and affect DNA.
Mexoryl 400: A revolutionary new filter protects skin against ultra-long UVA rays
Anthelios UVMUNE 400 Invisible Fluid SPF50+ and Moisturizing Cream SPF50+ are powered by a new and special filter: Mexoryl 400. After 10 years of groundbreaking research, Mexoryl 400, the only UV filter that provides the longest UV protection, offers ultimate protection for all skin types. Mexoryl 400 formulas target oxidative stress, pigmentation, DNA lesions, photopollution damage and signs of photoaging such as wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity and blemishes. Powered by the Mexoryl 400 filter, Anthelios UVMUNE 400 Invisible Fluid SPF50+ and Moisturizing Cream SPF50+ covers the longest UVA range from 380 to 400 nm, pushing the limits of sun care by protecting the skin against biological damage and providing proven skin benefits. Anthelios UVMUNE 400, which is resistant to sand, sweat and moisture, can be applied around the eyes.
Protection against deep cell damage
It has been clinically proven that Anthelios UVMUNE 400 Invisible Fluid SPF50+ and Moisturizing Cream SPF50+, which do not sting or leave white marks, protect the skin against deep cell damage thanks to the special UV filter Mexoryl 400. Anthelios UVMUNE 400 Invisible Fluid SPF50+ and Moisturizing Cream SPF50+ offer broader sun protection with a long UVA filter, preventing DNA lesions, thus preventing early signs of photo-aging such as pigmentation, loss of elasticity and sagging.
Formulas that respect marine life
La Roche-Posay remains committed to offering high sun protection with the new Anthelios UVMUNE 400’s formulas that respect marine life. Beyond its proven effectiveness, La Roche-Posay tests face and body formulas. In tests with different aquatic organisms, it was stated that the new UVMUNE 400 formulas did not have a negative effect on marine life.
