In Europe, Asia, South America, Canada, Mexico and Australia, people are using an incredibly effective sunscreen containing the ingredient Mexoryl, which is illegal in the U.S. "It produces a product which gives us almost perfect protection against sunshine, or at least as good as we can get at this time," says dermatologist Dr. Vincent Deleo.
Dermatologist Dr. Darrell Rigel says, "Mexoryl is over two times better than any other combination of ingredients that currently exist, in terms of protecting from ultraviolet A radiation." The sun's ultraviolet A radiation can penetrate glass and contributes to skin cancer, which strikes a million Americans every year.
Mexoryl has been available in the rest of the world for years, but has yet to be approved by the FDA. European studies have shown the compound is both safe and effective. "It would be better if we had sunscreens containing Mexoryl available to our population in the U.S.," says Rigel. "The rest of the world has them; there's no reason we shouldn't have them also.?
Some drugstores sell foreign sunscreens that contain the ingredient, even though it's against the law. "We can't keep them in stock," says a Manhattan pharmacist. "We ship them everywhere."
