Where to buy Anthelios?

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Wednesday, June 13, 2007 4:39 PM (Eastern)

So, I am getting more serious about sunscreen this year. The sun has gotten noticeably stronger around here.

It's...a bemusing experience. Apparently it is not possible to just go to your local drugstore in Northern California and buy a sunscreen containing what is widely touted as the best sunscreen ingredient: Mexoryl. It just isn't.

I tried Longs Drugs, Walgreens and Target, before accepting that this substance just might be slightly more difficult to procure than cocaine. Here is a thread from the forums, on the first etailers that showed when searching Anthelios.

I will post here what I decide to buy and from whom.

I'm pretty sure that Bigelows sells it. And also, And L'Oreal has just come out with a sunscreen with Meroxyl... or maybe that was Lancome. I fail to discern the difference between the two.

Yup, it was Lancome. Arabella tried it and didn't care for it. The Anthelios formula has gotten more favorable reviews from what I can tell.

I'm still a bit fuddled as to why L'Oreal has released this in only two brands. I can dig they own the patent, but why not make it more easily available? Don't they think people would buy it? There's a tremendous demand now for better and better sunscreens. It freaks me out a bit that I actually went to a European site to check their prices.
