What is Helioplex®?
Avobenzone is one of the best UVA blockers approved by the FDA, but it is highly unstable when exposed to sunlight. Neutrogena was the first in the US market to introduce sun protection in which Avobenzone was stabilized using Oxybenzone and DEHN, effectively providing better, longer protection from harmful UVA rays. This breakthrough technology was called Helioplex®.
With time, and as science has progressed, the Helioplex® name has come to encompass additional technologies and ingredients beyond DEHN while continuing to provide the same benefits of stabilized sun protection.
Today Helioplex® represents a breadth of stabilized sunscreen technologies that deliver superior protection from the sun. When you choose a sunblock with the name Helioplex®, you can be certain that you are using one that was specifically engineered to deliver superior UV protection that is broad spectrum and photostable.
What’s UVA/ UVB?
Bought one from watson as I desperately needed one for my weekly tennis under the hot sun. Its good for outdoor sports cos its very convenient. You just aim and spray. It made the skin looks exceptionally shiny, like those body builders. haha.. also the mist has a cooling effect which feels good on the skin. I am not too sure if it protects the skin well against the sun as of now cos I only used once and I was hiding under the shade at every opportunity I get. I was reading some reviews on the Neutrogena website but there were mixed reviews of the product. For now, I am quite pleased with it.
Usage: Apply 15-30 minutes before sun exposure. Hold can 20-30 cm away from the body and apply liberally, spraying slowly and evenly until product is visible on skin. Can be applied directly to wet skin. Reapply after swimming, excessive perspiration, towel drying or extended sun exposure.
