Q: What is the difference between Mexoryl SX and Mexoryl XL?
A: Mexoryl SX is a water soluble form suitable for day wear sunscreen formulations. Mexoryl XL is an oil soluble form which makes it more water resistant and suitable for in physical activities . Both offer effective protection against both UVA and UVB rays. When combined together, the ingredients Mexoryl XL and SX (as in our newest Anthelios product the Anthelios XL spf 60) produce formulations that offer very high spf protection.
