SPF's

We understand the importance of using an SPF lotion to protect your skin from burning when working, playing sport or sunbathing outdoors. Unlike tanning indoors (in a controlled environment) there is a greater chance of burning from UV exposure outdoors and we therefore stock a full range of SPF lotions ranging from SPF 4 to SPF 50. All of our SPF lotions come in a spray or lotion, added bronzer or non-bronzer and waterproof or non-waterproof variant so we have an SPF to suit everyone!

SPFs (Sun Protection Factor) are sunscreens that you apply to your skin to prevent it from burning when exposed to UVB rays outdoors.  The SPF is the measure we use to determine how well the sunscreen will protect your skin from these UVB rays.

For example if your skin usually burns after 20 minutes exposure to sunlight, then applying an SPF 10 sunscreen will allow you to be in the sunlight for 200 minutes without burning (a factor of 10).  However, this should only ever be used a crude guide as other factors such as your skin type, the suns intensity and the amount of sunscreen applied should also be taken into consideration.  

For optimum protection we recommend you use a minimum SPF 15 and apply the proper amount of 30ml for full body coverage and reapplying every 2 hours.

Most people under-apply their sunscreen.  Using only 1/2 the amount of recommended sunscreen will only provide the sq root of the SPF used.  So if you only apply 15ml of an SPF 30 the effective SPF is only 5.5!

Something else to consider is that the SPF scale is not linear.  

  • An SPF 15 lotion will block 93% of UVB rays
  • An SPF 30 lotion will block 97% of UVB rays
  • An SPF 50 lotion will block 98% of UVB rays

So an SPF 30 lotion will only offer you an extra 4% protection from UVB rays.
