Cell Ox Shield is a sun filtering system composed of 5 sun filters that have been around for many years including:

*Avobenzone

*Homosalate

*Octisalate

*Octocrylene

*Oxybenzone

Marketing may lead you to believe that Cell-Ox Shield is innovative and better than anything else on the market, but the sun filters in Cell Ox Shield can be found in many other sunscreens currently available at your local drugstore.

While Cell Ox Shield will deliver protection against both UVA and UVB rays, it isn't as 'innovative' as the manufacturers will have you believe. Avobenzone is appropriately stabilized with octocrylene and delivers good UVA protection. Oxybenzone is perhaps the most problematic ingredient in Cell Ox Shield as it has been associated with skin allergies, hormone disruption and cell damage. Just as troubling, studies have shown it can generate free radicals which age skin. Exactly what you don't want your sunscreen doing.
