There is a lot of information to take into account when making this decision, so let’s look at it together.
The first thing to know is that sunscreens are products designed to defend and protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays.
The sun protection factor is a numerical value that measures a product’s ability to protect against UVB radiation. For example, a Sun Protection Factor 15 filters out about 93% of UVB rays, while an SPF 30 filters out about 96%.
By law, UVA protection must be at least one third of UVB protection.
