NEO HELIOPAN HYDRO
BENZOPHENONE-4 is within a group of aromatic ketones that contain both UVB and UVA absorbing properties that filter block out harmful UV rays. It is quite effective in not only filtering out UV rays but also preventing other ingredients from being degraded by the sun. It does not penetrate the skin to a large degree but allows for other ingredients to do so.
ZINC OXIDE (micronized) work by scattering the sun’s rays, which prevents potentially damaging ultraviolet radiation from getting to the skin. The finely powdered mineral formula used in sunscreen does two things—reflect and absorb. A protective zinc oxide layer on top of the skin reflects and absorbs the harmful UVA (also considered to be carcinogenic) and UVB rays such that they don’t reach your skin.
NIACINAMIDE is helpful for severe acne, especially inflammatory forms like papules and pustules. Niacinamide helps build cells in the skin while also protecting them from environmental stresses, such as sunlight, pollution, and toxins. Niacinamide reduces inflammation, which may help ease redness from eczema, acne, and other inflammatory skin conditions.
