Outstanding photostable protection across the UVA/UVB spectrum

Helioplex® represents a breadth of stabilized sunscreen technologies specifically engineered to deliver broad-spectrum, superior protection from UVA/UVB damage.

Exceptional absorbance throughout the UV spectrum1

  • Helioplex® technology is stable under UV radiation and helps protect against sun-induced free-radical generation
  • Maintains over 85% of UVA protection after 5 hours (simulated UV irradiation levels approximating 5 hours of midday sun exposure)

UV absorbance compared with other broad spectrum sunscreens1*

Protection against UV-induced cellular damage

A single application of broad spectrum SPF 55 sunscreen with Helioplex® technology provided protection for multiple cellular markers against a UV insult of 55 minimal erythema doses (MED).2

Suppresses thymine-dimer formation2

UV-induced skin damage may cause skin cells to mutate and lead to skin cancer.

Thymine dimers2

Minimizes depletion of Langerhans cells2

UV exposure is known to reduce the presence of Langerhans cells in the epidermis, compromising skin immunity and leading to immune suppression.
