Ombrelle Sunscreens include the sun filter Mexoryl SX and/or Mexoryl XL plus other effective sun protection agents. Its efficacy makes it the #1 recommended sun protection brand by dermatologists and pharmacists in Canada.
Introduced to Canada in 1990, Ombrelle products use unparalleled suncare technology. Ombrelle suncare products are recognized by the Canadian Dermatology Association, recommended by healthcare professionals and a brand of choice by those concerned about protection against UV rays.
The Ombrelle franchise is owned by L’Oreal, a company dedicated to UV protection and who owns more than 70 patents in this area of skin care alone. This investment has resulted in effective sunscreens like Ombrelle that offer photostable, broad spectrum protection against UVA/UVB rays.
Ombrelle’s Key Ingredients
Ombrelle’s key ingredient is Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) a photostable and broad spectrum UVA/UVB blocker. Mexoryl SX is the result of years of ongoing research.
New Mexoryl XL, a novel sun filtering agent, provides effective and sustained UVA and UVB protection. Chemists have modified this molecule so that it is not only effective by is able to be formulated into products that feel pleasant when applied. Mexoryl XL maintains efficacy under sun exposure and helps prevent skin damage caused by sun’s UV rays.
Ombrelle was the first brand to recognize the necessity of protection against UVBs, and UVA rays. The incorporation of avobenzone (Parsol 1789, an sun filter that blocks both UVA and UVB rays) allowed for full spectrum UV protection. Continued research allowed for the utilization of a patented sun filtering system in formulations that are effective and lasting against UV rays.
When Mexoryl SX, Mexoryl XL, Parsol 1789 and other key agents are combined together in Ombrelle Sunsreens, the result is products that deliver time and time again.
Why Is Photostabilty Important?
“Photostability” means that a sunscreen includes sun filters that maintain their effectiveness when exposed to the sun. They do not lose their effectiveness under sunlight and remain stable for the desired period of sun protection. Photostability makes sunscreens even more effective and reliable.
