Elta MD sunscreens prevent sunburn and decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun, when used with other sun protection measures. Elta MD sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are nonconedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free, and paraben-free. Elta MD also has a skin care line that includes deep yet gentle cleansers, intense moisturizers and innovative formulas that repair the visible signs of aging.
Why is zinc oxide used in Elta MD sunscreens?
Zinc Oxide is a natural mineral that is safe even on the most sensitive skin, including post procedure skin and even that of children 6 months or older. Zinc oxide blocks UVB (burning) and UVA (aging) rays that have been linked to photoaging and skin cancer.
