SPF (sun protection factor) is a rating for the level of protection against sun-burning rays caused primarily by UVB. Our sunscreens with Helioplex® have the added benefit of performance-stabilizing technology for long-lasting UVA protection. It's superior sun protection.
What is Helioplex®?
Neutrogena's Helioplex® technology helps to provide long-lasting sun protection. Helioplex® represents a breadth of stabilized sunscreen technologies that deliver superior protection from the sun.
What's the difference between UVB and UVA?
UVB rays can cause sunburn (think B=Burning Rays) and lead to skin cancer. UVA rays (think A=aging) penetrate deeper into the skin. They can lead to signs of aging. After long-term exposure, skin may appear dry, lined and leathery.
Because Neutrogena® sun protection products, engineered with Helioplex® technology, give you the exceptional broad-spectrum protection you and your skin deserve.
