Sun protection guide: protecting your skin from UV rays

Date: July 15, 2024 Time: 18:51:24

The label of a sunscreen contains the most complete information about the tasks it can solve. The main thing is to understand the notation.

– The abbreviation SPF, which can be deciphered as Sun Protection Factor, is a type B sun protection factor. The number next to it indicates the degree of protection. For example, SPF 20 will block 93% of rays, 30 – 97%, 50 – 98%. SPF 80 and 100 designations are becoming less common, but in practice they will not provide protection above 50.

– The UVA icon in a circle, as well as RA+(++), i.e. UVA Protection Degree, which marks protection against type A sun rays. The more plus signs there are in the RA abbreviation, the greater the protective properties.

— The PPD indicator, or persistent pigment darkening, which may resemble the PI on the packaging of Asian sunscreens, is also a sign of protection against type A radiation. The minimum useful value is 8 and the maximum is 56.

— Broad Spectrum refers to broad-spectrum protection against type A and B rays.

– The phrase High Protection, that is, “high degree of protection”, indicates a high degree of protection against ultraviolet radiation.

In addition to information on the degree of sun protection, Sanskrin packaging may contain the following markings:

– Waterproof, or “water-resistant product”: Cream with SPF is waterproof, which means it protects the skin while you swim. This is important because ultraviolet light can penetrate water up to a depth of 50 cm.

– Anti-Sand, “sand-resistant”: sand does not stick to the sunscreen, which is convenient and important when applying it on the beach.

– Invisible, that is, “invisible”: the product has a transparent texture that does not leave white streaks on the skin.

– Anti-wrinkle: Sunscreen prevents signs of skin photoaging such as wrinkles and pigmentation.

– Ocean Protect, as well as images of corals: the product does not harm the ocean or its inhabitants.

– Without oxybenzone, without octinoxate: the formula does not contain sunscreens such as oxybenzone and octinoxate. It was they who at one time caused damage to the coral population.
