The Shell Helix portfolio

Fully synthetic motor oils

Shell Helix fully synthetic oils are manufactured from 100% synthetic base stock and high quality additives to achieve higher performance levels than both synthetic technology and mineral oils. To these high-quality synthetic base oils we add our proprietary Active Cleansing Technology to create a motor oil that helps provide superior cleansing and protection for today’s engines.

Semi-synthetic motor oils

Shell Helix semi-synthetic or ‘synthetic technology’ oils make use of both synthetic and mineral base stocks to achieve higher performance levels than can be formulated from mineral oils alone. With our active cleansing technology, Shell Helix synthetic technology motor oils go on cleansing and protecting to help keep your engine feeling like new.
