To improve patient care and outcomes, leading dermatologists offered their recommendations on the top sunscreens. Consideration must be given to:
- Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid
La Roche-Posay Laboratoire Dermatologique
“The fact that this product is a total blocker with active ingredients blocking UVB and Mexoryl SX for additional UVA photoprotection makes it one of the ideal sunscreens. In addition, the formulation feels great on the skin.”—Marta I. Rendon, MD, Miami, FL
“I like this product because it provides both UVA and UVB protection utilizing the physical blocker titanium dioxide that also is stabilized with the company’s Cell-Ox Shield technology. It is fragrance free and paraben free as well.”—Anthony M. Rossi, MD, New York, NY
“This product is noncomedogenic, paraben free, sensitivity free, and fragrance free. It contains 9% zinc oxide, the broadest spectrum UVA/UVB physical blocker.”—Basil M. Hantash, MD, PhD, Turlock, CA
- Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50
“This chemical-free sunscreen is a cosmetically elegant choice for people who want to have a mineral sunscreen but can’t tolerate the white film.”—Amy J. Derick, MD, Barrington, IL
- Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 85
“It has excellent UVA and UVB protection in a nongreasy base that most patients like a lot. It’s particularly popular with patients who have oily skin and with male patients who don’t like a creamy-feeling product.”—Mark G. Rubin, MD, Beverly Hills, CA
“This is a spray that is easy to apply to children and is great to quickly spray extremities before sports and can be reapplied on wet skin but not to the face.”—Marian Northington, MD, Birmingham, AL
