Product summary

Based on the ingredient list, we assess that "Heliocare - 360 Gel Oil-Free SPF 50 Sunscreen" can provide reliable sun protection. It can protect from both UVA and UVB rays. This is great news because not all sunscreens with SPF ratings give UVA protection. (UVA rays do not cause sunburn, but still damage our skin and lead to early aging).

Its formula is also hydrating, so you might not need an additional moistruizer during the day. Like all broad-spectrum sunscreens, this product has an anti-aging benefit.

Sunscreen filters

This is a "mixed" sunscreen in the sense that it uses both mineral and organic (so-called "chemical") sun filters. Here are the organic filters this product uses: tinosorb s, uvinul a plus, uvasorb heb, neo heliopan ap, uvinul t and ensulizole. As for the mineral filters, this sunscreen uses titanium dioxide.
