For Toby,
Thanks for your questions. You are right that the Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Fluide Extreme has been renamed Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Fluide Ultra-light Fluide with a new formulation. The link you provided has Tinosorb S listed with its chemical name, BIS-ETHYLHEXYLOXYPHENOL METHOXYPHENYL TRIAZINE. This matches with the stock that we currently have.
As for its suitability for those who have rosacea, it would be difficult to determine without a skin patch test. Because rosacea manifests itself differently for each person, it would impossible to tell if the Anthelios XL SPF 50 Ultra-light Fluide would act as a trigger. Those who deal with rosacea tend to do better with sunscreens that use only physical sun filters such as zinc oxide and/or titanium oxide.
Best, Sharmani

What is the difference between Preparation H with BioDyne Cream and Preparation H with BioDyne Ointment?

For Alli,
Thanks for your question. Both Preparation H Cream and Preparation H Ointment have the same active ingredient, 1.0% BioDyne. However, one has a cream base (some of our customers find this more agreeable when using it on their face for wrinkles and undereye puffiness) while the ointment has a petroleum jelly-like base.
Best, Sharmani
