The Cosmeceuticals Boom:
Where Do Dermatologists Stand? With the amount of sunscreen products now available, patients may require a bit of guidance. I prefer micronized, physical blocking agents that effectively block both UVA & UVB rays but don’t feel thick and pasty. Make sure patients are getting at least 6-8% zinc oxide. Topix [makes] great formulations that are water resistant and come in cream, lotion, and spray vehicles.
