a history of healing

Our roots go way back to the 1800’s, in rural Switzerland, with a powerful healing ointment that was passed down by farmers for generations. In 1988, that Swiss secret made its way to the US by way of our founder who saw its full healing potential and developed a line of professional wound care products called Elta. That line soon became the trusted choice in healing at hospitals, burn centers and rehabilitation clinics around the world. In 2007, we brought our medical heritage and science-backed formulas to everyday products and became the EltaMD we are today.

When it comes to sun and skin care, there is no one-formula-fits-all.

Sun care

sun care

We formulate all of our sunscreens with zinc oxide, a natural mineral that acts like a shield, protecting your skin from the widest range of UVA and UVB rays. And because sunscreen is most effective when used every day, we design all of ours to be silky and blendable and sheer.
