La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios range for protection against sun damage



~Your skin care regime that offers complete protection against UVB and UVA rays~

Bangalore, November 25th, 2015 – The sun, like many of life’s pleasures is a powerful source of pleasure. For many it is synonymous with outdoor sports, bathing in the sea and some people claim that it can even lift the spirits. For many, however, it can be a source of irritation and discomfort. The dangers associated with the overindulgence of the sun can be unforgiving. La Roche-Posay has dedicated a huge amount of time and research into the protection of sensitive skin against the sun’s powerful rays with one major goal: constantly pushing back the frontiers of photo protection to fight the irreversible damage that the sun can cause.

La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios range, derived from the Greek “anti-helios” (against the sun) combine dermatologically proven UVA-UVB  and long UVA rays protection which together are responsible for 80% of the signs of premature ageing. These UV filters are enriched with the natural soothing and antioxidant properties of La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water in order to offer sensitive and sun-allergic skins respite from the powerful rays of sun exposure.Anthelios specially formulated textures suit all skin types and skin concerns and is recommended by dermatologists worldwide.

The efficacy and tolerance of Anthelios have been demonstrated over the years through 24 in vivo clinical trials
 carried out on over 700 subjects with photo-induced pathologies. The patented Mexoryl SX filter which offers a highly effective broad spectrum, photo stable UVA protective filter has made Anthelios a pioneer in skin care with over 30 years of photo expertise.

There’s a common myth which states that we don’t need sun protection in winter, however the fact is that the ultra violet rays produced by the sun can harm your skin round the year irrespective of the season. Sun damage tends to accelerate the skin ageing process called ‘photoaging’. Even though UVB radiation reduces during winter long UVA rays are still in full force. The skin constantly demands special care and attention irrespective of the season. Ignoring the skin may lead to sun burn, pigmentation disorder and skin cancer.

Anthelios also becomes vital for all clinical post procedure care to avoid pigmentation of sensitised skin following procedures. It provides optimum protection for sensitive zones and vulnerable areas, for men and woman and leaves the skin moisturised and repaired after clinical procedures.
