Active Ingredient – Helioplex.
Shelf Life– 24 months from the manufacturing date.
Consistency – its thick white creamy in texture.
Is very mild and flowery. smells like Jasmine but will not bother sensitive noses.
Trust me, i don’t like Jasmine smell but this one doesn’t seem to bother me.
Its quite mild and pleasant.
What is HelioPlex:
Avobenzone is one of the ingredients used to protect against UVA rays and is present in most sunscreens.
However, its highly unstable when exposed to sunlight.
Avobenzone was stabilized using Oxybenzone and DEHN,
effectively providing better, longer protection from harmful UVA rays.
This breakthrough technology was called Helioplex.
Helioplex is solely owned by Neutrogena.
A year back when I finished my Garnier Light Daily Moisturiser, I was very confused between Neutrogena and Lotus.
My brother said that Neutrogena is very greasy so I went with Lotus sunblock SPF 90. However, I got the neutrogena one later. what people said about Neutrogena was actually true. It made my combination skin very greasy. Like I slathered some cold cream on my face. I use sunscreen powder over it which gives me the complete matte look that i prefer. Whatever claims the company made of light weight, clean feel and Dry touch is all false. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ is good for a dewy look.
Coming to the sun protection factor, it scores a perfect 10 on 10. No tan, no burning. I can safely stay in the sun for about an hour, after which i have to re-apply it. Not that I mind. If you have oily or combination skin, make sure to powder your face, after using this sunscreen.
