FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What does SPF mean and which one is right for me?

SPF is an acronym for Sun Protection Factor, which is a measurement of the degree of sun protection provided by a sunscreen. Your skin type is the key factor in determining the appropriate level of sun protection, however, other factors must also be considered such as the duration of exposure and intensity of the UV index. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends broad spectrum sunscreens of at least SPF 30.

 

What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays?

UVA rays are longer and penetrate more deeply into the skin. These rays contribute to premature skin aging and skin cancer, which is why UVA rays are known as the "aging" rays. UVB rays are shorter, impact the surface of the skin, and are most responsible for sunburn. UVB rays are known as the "burning" rays.

 

What does broad spectrum mean?

Broad Spectrum means that the sunscreen provides protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
