Is Elta MD Vegan?
EltaMD does not test any of its products or any of its ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world nor does EltaMD delegate this task to others. The only possible exception is if regulatory authorities required it for safety or regulatory purposes.
What does the SPF value on sunscreen mean?
SPF or sunburn protection factor indicates the UVB/sunburn protection provided by sunscreen. The SPF value indicates the level of sunburn protection provided by the sunscreen product. All sunscreens must be tested according to an SPF test procedure. The test measures the amount of ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure it takes to cause sunburn when a person is using a sunscreen in comparison to how much UV exposure it takes to cause sunburn when they do not use a sunscreen. The product is then labeled with the appropriate SPF value indicating the amount of sunburn protection provided by the product. Higher SPF values provide greater sunburn protection. Because SPF values are determined from a test that measures protection against sunburn caused by ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation, SPF values only indicate a sunscreen’s UVB protection. However, sunscreens that pass the new broad-spectrum test will have demonstrated that they also provide ultraviolet A (UVA) protection that is proportional to their UVB protection.
I left my EltaMD sunscreen out in the heat. Will this ruin the product?
High temperature may cause the ingredients to separate or appear “unblended”. However, the sun protection properties are not affected by temperatures up to 122 degrees F (50 degrees C), the maximum at which the product is tested. Exposure to higher temperatures is a misuse of the product.
Do any EltaMD sunscreens have the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation?
All EltaMD lotion and cream sunscreens and UV Aero spray sunscreen have earned the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation as effective UV protectants.
Do EltaMD sunscreens help prevent skin cancer?
Yes. All EltaMD sunscreens are classified as Broad-Spectrum. According to the FDA, when used regularly and with other sun protection measures1, Broad-Spectrum sunscreens with SPF 15 or higher decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging.
Why is zinc oxide used in EltaMD sunscreens?
Zinc oxide is a natural mineral that is safe even on the most sensitive skin, including post-procedure skin and even that of children 6 months or older. Zinc oxide blocks UVB (burning) and UVA (aging) rays that have been linked to photoaging and skin cancer.
is avobenzone or oxybenzone in EltaMD sunscreens?
No. EltaMD products do not contain oxybenzone or avobenzone.
Sunscreens used to say “waterproof” but now they don’t. Why not?
Since the FDA’s Final Rule went into effect, manufacturers cannot label sunscreens as “waterproof” or “sweatproof”, or identify their products as “sunblocks,” because these claims overstate their effectiveness.
Is the vitamin E in EltaMD sunscreens gluten-free?
To the best of our knowledge, the vitamin E in EltaMD sunscreens is gluten-free.
