Dermatologists feel that European sunscreens are better than, sunscreens available in the US.

Major Benefits
a. European Sunscreens contain Mexoryl and Tinosorb, which effectively blocks UV-A rays; that cause skin cancer and accelerates skin aging.
b. Sunscreens available in US are effective in blocking UV-B rays only.
b. European sunscreens need not be re-applied again and again.

However, sunscreen with Mexoryl, made by cosmetic company L'oreal. (Which got FDA approval last month) is expected to hit stores by this fall, in the US market.
