Every day, dermatologists observe the severe skin damages caused by UVA and UVB ray exposure.

UVB rays mainly cause Burning
They are stopped by the epidermis.  They cause tanning and are mainly responsible for sunburn.  SPF or "Sun Protection Factor" is the degree of protection a sunscreen offers against UVB rays.

UVA rays mainly cause Aging or Sun Allergies
They penetrate deeper into the skin than UVB rays and can reach into the dermis.  UVA rays directly contribute to skin aging (wrinkles, sagging, dark spots) and are the #1 cause of sun intolerances (allergies).

Both UVA and UVB rays have been proven to cause damage to skin cells, including DNA, and to weaken the immune system.  These damages potentially lead to the development of skin cancer.

A pioneer in UV protection research for over 15 years, La Roche-Posay, with Anthelios, is trusted by dermatologists worldwide for its advanced formulations in UVA protection.
