When choosing a sunscreen, experts at Consumer Search say it's important to choose a product that protects from UVB and UVA rays. Experts on the Viva Woman website confirm that Neutrogena Helioplex contains both avobenzone and oxybenzone, two sunscreen ingredients that are highly effective in blocking harmful rays.

Helioplex

The effectiveness of Neutrogena's Helioplex products, according to Viva Woman, is substantiated by FDA and independent labs. They indicate that the sunscreen presents a superior form of UVA ray protection. The combination of ingredients provides the protection and the needed stability to remain effective longer.

Considerations

Although Neutrogena's Helioplex products appear to give effective broad-spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays, their active ingredients are considered sunblocks and not sun barriers (as are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide). This means you should apply product before entering the sun to give it adequate time for absorption and efficacy. The Performance Leader website notes that the products are not effective on healing existing sun damage such as brown spots and wrinkles.

Identification

Neutrogena's current product line that features the combination UVA and UVB protection of Helioplex includes: the Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry-Touch sunblock, Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Body Mist Sunblock and Neutrogena Age Shield sunblock. Not all products contain the same SPF number, so consult the product for directions on reapplication.
