Anthelios by La Roche-Posay: very high protection at the service of sensitive skin


Working closely with dermatologists around the world and always at the cutting edge of research, La Roche-Posay Dermatological Laboratory is continuously enhancing its ANTHELIOS XL line to offer suncare products combining very high protection, respect for sensitive skin and comfort on application.

Anthelios: for almost 30 years, La Roche-Posay Dermatological Laboratory has been furthering suncare cosmetics at the service of sun-sensitive skin.

Over the last 30 years, La Roche-Posay has continued to innovate and improve the formulas in the Anthelios line with a main objective: to offer optimum sun protection for sensitive skin to protect it from damaging effects of the sun (cutaneous ageing, sun intolerance, photo-induced diseases, etc.).

Anthelios was the first brand to benefit from exclusive filtering systems: Mexoryl SX™[Ecamsule] in 1992 and Mexoryl XL™ [Drometrizole Trisiloxane] in 1998. Always at the forefront of innovation, Anthelios was a pioneering line by offering effective protection against both UVB and UVA rays, without compromising on tolerance.


24 clinical studies demonstrating the protective efficacy of Anthelios on sun-related diseases.

Unique textures for protected skin all year long

Even though protection against UV rays is essential all year long, sun-protection needs vary depending on the season, exposure situation and skin type.

Anthelios is available in several formats, textures and protection factors to meet specific needs. Anthelios offers sun protection solutions for the whole family: adults and children. They come in a broad spectrum of high SPF50 and SPF50+ and are tailored to each skin type and exposure situation.
