Elta MD uses a transparent form of zinc oxide that protects the skin from both UVA rays that cause aging and UVB rays that cause burning, without leaving a white cast on the skin. Zinc oxide is the only ingredient that uniformly blocks both UVA and UVB rays, including the long UVA rays that have been shown to cause photoaging and skin cancer. Elta MD sunscreens are also designed to help fight other common skin problems such as rosacea, acne, dry skin and sensitive skin.
Sensitive skin clients rejoice at Elta MD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46, which contains no harsh irritants. Designed for daily wear, this product contains no oil and is non-comedogenic.
Customer comment: "I use it instead of moisturizer. It reduces my redness, is not greasy at all and does not sting. Love it!" -Monica
Elta MD UV Sport Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 won't budge, even when you're swimming, playing sports or exercising. It provides a high level of broad-spectrum protection through the use of 9% zinc oxide. It can be applied to both wet and dry skin, making it super convenient.
Elta MD was created due to the lack of variety in the sun protection products available to the public. It strives to bring the highest sun protection possible without the use of irritating ingredients or undesirable formulations.
