Mechanism Of Action Ecamsule protects against UV wavelengths in the 290–400 nanometer range, with peak protection at 345 nm. Ecamsule is photostable and it does not degrade significantly when exposed to light. In studies done in mice it reduces the formation of UV induced pyrimidine dimers and delays the onset of skin cancer. In vitro, ecamsule has been shown to effectively protect against the harmful effects of UV.
Description of the Drug: Ecamsule is a sunscreen agent found in sunscreens that absorbs UV rays.
