Mission Possible

The sun is a force of nature. MDSolarSciences™ is a force for change.

Founded by the renowned dermatologist and oncologist Dr. Robert J. Friedman, the mission of MDSolarSciences is to eradicate skin cancer by preventing it from happening in the first place.

Fron the beginning, Dr. Friedman understood that people would only incorporate sunscreens into their daily skincare regimens if the formulas were easy to apply and were a pleasure to wear.

As a result a collection of silky, oil-free, mineral-based formulas was created that apply smoothly and blend effortlessly.  They're made with quality-tested EcoCert® Zinc Oxide for full-spectrum UV-light (UVA and UVB) protection and packed with organic ingredients, comprising among others, vitamin-rich antioxidants, ceramides, and humectants.

The MDSolarSciences™ SunScreen and SunRepair Collections are most effective when used in curated combinations that can be individualized for any skin type. MDSolarSciences™ products are environmentally responsible and do no harm to the planet, ocean or animal life.

SPF and Sunscreen Myths

We'll examine types of Ultra-Violet (UV) rays from the sun, sunscreens, and clarify the meaning behind SPF factors in sunscreens.

The sun's rays that are most damaging to our skin are called ultraviolet (UV) rays - of which there are two types, UVB and UVA.
Responsible for sunburn.
Major factor in skin cancer including deadly Melanoma.
Penetrate more deeply into the skin.
Also play a role in skin cancer causation.
Play a greater role in premature skin aging and wrinkle formation (photoaging).
Incredibly, there are approximately 500 times more UVA rays in sunlight than there are are UVB rays. So it's obviously very important to protect your skin from the myriad damaging UVA rays. Time-honored chemical sunscreens have been effective in blocking UVB rays, but for UVA rays, not so much. Today, sunscreens are available containing zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide provide a physical barrier to the sun's rays. For a sunscreen to protect against both UVB and UVA rays, the sunscreen label MUST provide "broad-spectrum" protection and MUST say so on the label. Broad-spectrum protection sunscreens containing antioxidants provide an additional layer of protection.

SPF, FDA, and Labeling
The only way to get 100% protection from the ultraviolet rays of the sun is to stay inside! But who wants to stay inside? But all is not lost! You can get a high level of protection by using a good sunscreen. Start by reading the labels of the sunscreens you buy, and in addition to making sure the sunscreen is a broad spectrum sunscreen, consider the SPF factor.

In the main, SPF ratings deal only with UVB rays. SPF 15 covers 93% of UVB rays, while and SPF 30 covers 97% of UVB rays - a meaningful difference. SPF 50, however, only gives 1% more protection, covering 98% of UVB rays. Protection over SPF 50 is incremental at best and often only "imagined" by the manufacturer. Also, the FDA introduced new labeling requirements a few years ago in order to clear up a lot of confusion. The FDA requires labels to state whether re-application is required after 40 minutes or after 80 minutes.

To Sum Up
  1. Broad Spectrum stated on the label
  2. Contains titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide
  3. In addition contains antioxidants
  4. At least SPF 30
