Yep, how right you are! I always buy sunscreens from Europe for this reason, generally from Avene. The SPF actives are different from the ones that Avene markets in the US. And yes, my very favorite SPF is one that has Tinosorb S and Tinosorb M a.k.a. Methoxyphenyl Triazine and Ethylhexyl Triazone.
