Product summary

Based on the ingredient list, we assess that "La Roche-Posay - ULTRA SPF50+ Face Sunscreen For Dry Skin" can provide reliable sun protection. We love that it can protect from both UVA and UVB rays (not all sunscreens with SPF ratings give UVA protection. UVA rays do not cause sunburn, but still damage our skin and lead to early aging).

Because it includes good moisturizing ingredients, it can also work as a hydrating day cream. Like all broad-spectrum sunscreens, this product helps prevent early signs of aging.

Sunscreen filters

This sunscreen uses so-called "chemical", or organic UV filters (organic simply means that their molecules contain atoms of carbon). These filters typically give good sun protection and rarely leave a white cast, but they can be irritating for sensitive skin. These are the sun protection ingredients in this sunscreen: tinosorb s 3.40% - 4.10%, avobenzone 1.00% - 1.30%, mexoryl xl 1.40% - 1.70%, octisalate 2.20% - 2.60%, uvinul t 2.00% - 2.50% and terephthalylidene dicamphor sulfonic acid 0.25% - 0.50%.

Irritation risk

This formulation includes some common irritants, including ingredients that do not provide a benefit for the skin. We assess the overall irritancy of it to be low. For a detailed overview of all potential irritants: click here
