NEW YORK, May 6, 2021: Daily application of sunscreen remains a critical step in not only preventing skin cancer, a growing health epidemic, but helping to reduce the signs of premature skin aging caused by the sun*. La Roche-Posay’s new breakthrough formula – ANTHELIOS MINERAL SPF 30 MOISTURIZER WITH HYALURONIC ACID – is more than mineral suncare. This mineral sunscreen for face is formulated with La Roche-Posay’s Cell-Ox Shield® Technology plus dermatologist recommended Hyaluronic Acid for those that desire efficacy yet simplicity in their routine. La Roche-Posay Anthelios Mineral SPF 30 Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid provides comfort and hydration while helping to protect against early skin aging*.
With millions of Americans working from home, often near windows, the need for daily SPF is essential. According to the International Ultraviolet Association, typical window glass will allow UVA rays to pass through. While almost all of the UVB, or burning rays, are blocked, UVA rays can penetrate glass and over time and can contribute to the development of skin cancer and aging. La Roche-Posay’s latest Anthelios innovation is a gentle, daily moisturizer formulated with 100% mineral sunscreen filters, including zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, plus antioxidants, making it an ideal choice for sensitive skin.
It also contains Hyaluronic Acid, which provides up to 12-hour hydration on the skin. Hyaluronic Acid, a natural humectant found in skin that depletes over time, is a top searched anti-aging molecule and accounts for 41% of growth in the skincare facial market. It has been a longtime champion ingredient in dermatology to increase hydration and plump skin.
“The common factor for any aging skin is the need for hydration and daily UVA/UVB protection,” says Jennifer L. MacGregor, M.D. a Board Certified dermatologist at Union Square Laser Dermatology. “I often recommend that my patients incorporate formulas into their daily routines with both UVA/UVB sun protection and hydrating properties.”
This hydrating cream texture is formulated for all skin-types, especially sensitive skin. It is non-comedogenic, fragrance free and paraben free.

100% mineral filter sunscreens are formulated only using Titanium Dioxide and/or Zinc Oxide as the active ingredients. These mineral actives are opaque powders, so a 100% mineral sunscreen can leave a grey, purple or white cast depending on skin tone. To help the formula blend into the skin, dispense onto fingers and warm in circular motion, apply onto skin in small sections, and rub well until the formula is no longer visible.
This joins the line of La Roche-Posay mineral sunscreens including Anthelios 50 Mineral Gentle-Lotion Sunscreen, Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid, Anthelios 50 Mineral Tinted Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid, and Anthelios Daily Mineral Primer.
