The #1 Recommended Sun Protection by Dermatologists
Launched in 1990 with the assistance of Canadian dermatologists, Ombrelle has dedicated itself to offer state-of-the-art suncare technology in Canada. Ombrelle's products are recognized by the Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA). Furthermore, Ombrelle is the brand most recommended by healthcare professionals and a brand of choice for sun-smart people.

For the past 60 years, L'Oréal has invested in UV and now holds over 70 patents in this field alone. Our research has focused on various subjects: active ingredients (UV filters), photostability, sun protection factor (SPF), texture to name but a few. With its expertise, Ombrelle offers a line of products recognized to offer broad spectrum protection against UVA/UVB rays.

Ombrelle also invests in public education promoting healthy sun attitudes. For adults, we offer informative material such as pamphlets, brochures, etc., made available at various point of sales, at your health specialist and on our Internet site. We also believe in increased sun awareness among children. Hence, we are engaged in national school programs as well as developing educational and interactive materials on our Internet site, using innovative ways to reach kids.

Mexoryl® SX, photostability, and broad spectrum protection, are the results of our devoted and ongoing suncare research. However, our mission is far from over. Our laboratories constantly strive to develop state-of-the-art technologies to achieve effective and advanced formulations. The best is yet to come.
