  • Description

  • Anthelios W SPF 30 Gel replaces La Roche Posay’s Anthelios W SPF 30 Gel. Although slightly lower in terms of sun protection factor (SPF) rating, the difference in UVB protection is minimal. An SPF 30 sunscreen protects against about 97% of UVB rays while an SPF 60 product delivers protection from approximately 99% of UVB rays. As well, the W 30 Gel has a PPD rating of 19. PPD is an indicator of UVA protection and is a rating system used in Europe. While UVB rays cause sunburn, UVA rays penetrate deeper and are responsible for more lasting skin damage such as wrinkles, age spots, loss of skin elasticity and some types of skin cancers.
