NEW FDA APPROVAL: THE HIGHEST UVA & UVB PROTECTION IN A SUNSCREEN WITH

MEXORYL(TM) SX

NEW YORK, April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- La Roche-Posay, the brand recommended by 25,000 dermatologists worldwide, announces the FDA approval of ANTHELIOS 40 with the highest photostable UVA and UVB protection available in a sunscreen with Mexoryl(TM) SX. ANTHELIOS 40 Sunscreen is a revolutionary outdoor use sunscreen for the face and body, specifically tested for safety on those with the photosensitive skin disorder, Polymorphous Light Eruption (PMLE).

UVA rays penetrate deeper than UVB rays and can result in significant skin damage ranging from premature skin aging to skin cancer. It is therefore essential to protect oneself against these harmful rays, especially for those that are more susceptible to the risks associated with UV exposure as a result of photosensitive disorders or autoimmune disease. Proper broad spectrum photo-protection that is effective and safe is an indispensable tool to help manage these very real dangers. According to Dr. Vincent Deleo (board certified New York - Los Angeles based dermatologist), "UV exposure and its related risks are a big concern in my own practice where I see many patients who are photosensitive either because of the drugs they take, skin type or even an autoimmune disease. They absolutely need effective
