Sunscreen containing Mexoryl, also known as ecamsule, provides the best available protection against UVA rays, which penetrate the skin deeper than UVB and can cause more damage. Mexoryl has been patented by L'Oreal and has been available in Canada for several years. It has recently been approved by the FDA and should be available in the U.S. this winter. The first FDA-approved product to be released on pharmacy shelves will be Anthelios SX.
