New in My Practice: OTC

With Deanne Mraz Robinson, MD, FAAD

In each issue, Practical Dermatology® magazine spotlights a new device or over-the-counter or prescription treatment that dermatologists are recommending to their patients. This month, Deanne Mraz Robinson, MD, FAAD, Co-Founder and President at Modern Dermatology of Connecticut in Westport and an Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, discusses ISDIN’s new Eryfotona Ageless sunscreen, her pick for summer 2020 and beyond.

What is Eryfotona Ageless?

Deanne Mraz Robinson, MD: ISDIN Eryfotona Ageless is a 100 percent mineral-based tinted SPF 50 that contains a blend of several proprietary ingredients that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help impact collagen synthesis. This sunscreen uses Peptide Q10, Peptide Complex, DNA Repairsomes, and antioxidants to defend against the signs of premature photoaging, fight free radicals, and stimulate the body’s synthesis of Coenzyme Q10. Additionally, the universal tint aids in hiding skin blemishes while evening tone.

How/when are you recommending Eryfotona Ageless in your practice?

Dr. Robinson: I recommend applying Eryfotona Ageless to the face every morning as it is the perfect day-to-day sunscreen and can be used in place of foundation.

How does it compare to other sunscreens?

Dr. Robinson: Unlike other mineral-based sunscreens, Eryfotona Ageless’ formula is extremely lightweight and blends evenly on skin. The SPF provides additional benefits by reversing the signs of photoaging and preventing future damage with ingredients like peptides, DNA repairsomes, and vitamin E.

How well does Eryfotona Ageless work?

Dr. Robinson: Eryfotona Ageless contains zinc and iron oxides that work together to shield skin from harmful UV and visible light, without clogging pores or leaving a greasy residue. The tinted SPF can be used primarily on the face, neck and décolletage.

Which patients make the best candidates for Eryfotona Ageless?

Dr. Robinson: All patients are great candidates for this sunscreen. It is suitable for all skin types and since Eryfotona Ageless uses physical blockers rather than chemical, the product is pregnancy safe as well.
