Mexoryl SX is an effective sun filtering agent designed to protect against short UVA rays (maximum absorption at 344nm). It is also highly photostable, meaning that sunscreens formulated with Mexoryl SX will maintain its UVA protective ability for longer and not degrade as quickly as many other UVA filters when exposed to the sun.
Effective sunscreens must incorporate sun filtering agents that will deliver broad spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Older sun filters delivered great UVB protection, but weren’t so effective at protecting against UVA rays. Mexoryl SX does this.
How does Mexoryl SX work?
Mexoryl SX works to protect skin by absorbing the energy of the sun’s short UVA rays. It does this by penetrating your skin, deactivating and releasing the absorbed energy into the environment as harmless energy. This process is repeated over and over for many hours, keeping your skin safe from UV rays. Sunscreens containing Mexoryl SX also include other sun filters such as titanium dioxide, stabilized avobenzone and Octocrylene to deliver products that effectively cover the whole range of the UVA and UVB spectrum.
Sunscreens, though highly effective, can sometimes feel heavy on the skin. The reason for this is that it allows them stay on the skin through activities such as swimming, sweating and summer heat, delivering effective protection over time. You can feel confident knowing that your sunscreen won’t let you down.

However, there are days when you won’t be spending all day in the sun. When you’ll be going to and from work, running errands or perhaps sitting by the window. You’ll still be subjected to the sun’s UV rays, but you won’t necessarily need a heavy duty formulation. On these days, you may wish for a Mexoryl SX daily moisturizing cream. A product like this will serve as both a moisturizer and sunscreen. And it will feel terrific on your skin.

Your skin will thank you in years to come.
