The trademarked name of a sunscreen technology is Helioplex. It offers UVA and UVB protection by combining avobenzone with the stabilising compound oxybenzone. Stay here and read more about Helioplex.
What is Helioplex?
Avobenzone and oxybenzone are both contained in Neutrogena’s broad-spectrum UVA and UVB skin protection formula Helioplex, which offers a range of stabilised sunscreen technologies designed to provide excellent, broad-spectrum protection from UVA and UVB damage.
After a few hours in the sun, avobenzone-containing products lose some of their effectiveness. The maker asserts that the use of oxybenzone, however, lessens the amount of deterioration that takes place.
Benifits of Helioplex
Excellent UV spectrum absorption, stability under UV irradiation, and aids in preventing free radical production brought on by the sun. A single application of broad spectrum SPF 55 sunscreen with Helioplex technology protects against a UV insult of 55 minimum erythema doses and maintains over 85% of UVA protection even after 5 hours of midday sun exposure.
UV-induced skin damage is known to lower the amount of Langerhans cells in the epidermis, which compromises skin immunity and results in immunological suppression. Skin cancer may develop as a result of skin cells that have mutated due to UV-induced skin damage. Additionally, broad-spectrum, photostable formulations cover all potential patients.
