Helioplex is the trademarked name of a sunscreen technology that combines avobenzone with a stabilizing ingredient called oxybenzone to offer protection from both UVA and UVB sunlight. Helioplex is a formulation of broad-spectrum ultraviolet (UVA and UVB) skin protection containing avobenzone and oxybenzone made by Neutrogena. Avobenzone-containing products have decreasing efficiency after a few hours of sun exposure, but the manufacturer claims that the addition of oxybenzone reduces the amount of degradation that occurs. Aveeno advertises its products using this formulation under a different name of "Active Photobarrier Complex."
