Sun protection doesn’t end at just SPF
Sun protection may be the last step in your skincare routine, but it’s by far the most vital one for long-term skin health. Our comprehensive range of supercharged products have been designed to minimise this damage and maximise skincare benefits, for healthy & resilient skin.
While SPF guards against UVB & UVA rays, it doesn't fully shield the skin from concerns such as tanning, sunburns, hyperpigmentation and a damaged skin barrier.
Both UVB & UVA rays are emitted from the sun but also come from LED nail lamps, halogen and fluorescent lights, etc. Blue light mainly comes from the sun but also from digital screens and LED lights while Infrared light emits from heating devices, lightbulbs, etc. These can penetrate the skin deeper than UVB & UVA rays with excessive exposure.
SUN PROTECTION SIMPLIFIED!
In order to pick the right SPF, it is crucial to understand some important terms
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor! SPF = The amount of protection from UVB rays of the sun offered by a sunscreen. Higher SPF equals stronger protection from UVB radiation. SPFs are rated on a scale of 10-50+ based on their protection level.
PA stands for Protection Grade of UVA denoted by plus signs (+), is a rating system indicating a sunscreen's defence against UVA radiation. More (+) signs in PA rating = greater UVA protection.
When selecting sunscreen, prioritize both UVA and UVB protection. UVA guards against premature aging, while UVB shields from sunburn. Besides a high SPF for UVB, check the PA rating for the right UVA protection.
Clinically Tested In-Vivo
SPF is calculated through two methods: In-Vivo testing and In-Vitro testing, with the latter being the more widely employed approach.
Recognized as the global benchmark for SPF testing, in-vivo denotes evaluations conducted on real human skin that takes into account real-world conditions like sweat, water and other environmental factors to assess the sunscreen's efficacy across factors such as degree of protection against UV radiation, prevention of sunburn and duration of protection. In-Vivo tests can provide a comprehensive understanding of how a sunscreen product performs in real-life conditions.
