Know your Sunscreen Series Part 2


Know your Sunscreen Series Part 2

Hi Everyone after my first blog post on sunscreens here I’m continuing the topic of sunscreens, If you haven’t read my previous blog stop right here and click the link below.


Now that you have read and understood how were sunscreens made and to read what the SPF numbers stand for, Lets take it further on by knowing what the values of PA +++++ OR Boot Star Rating ***** mean on your Sunscreen tubes.

The UVB protection rating which signifies the percentage of protection the sunscreen gives from the UVB rays is widely known in two types of ratings in this concept the European rating which is the Boot Star ***** symbolised & the Japanese rating which is the PA+++++ Rating. Each of these Stars * or Plus + Symbols mean 20% protection from UVB, so if there are 5 Stars there is a whole 100% protection from UVB.

Now that we have this part of the concept cleared. It’s time to discuss my favourite Sunscreens available in the market today.

Sunscreens have been in the market since the world was made, okay a bit of exaggeration there but sunscreens have been a boon to society since the early ages when greeks used olive oil as a sun protection. Egyptians used Rice & Jasmine Plant extracts. Synthetic Sunscreens today have also been quite in for a few thousand years. The biggest hit at that time was a sunscreen with SPF 2. (Whoa!) We’ve come a long way haven’t we? In the last decades alone we have come up with Broad Spectrums, Water Resistant etc.

So coming back to understanding the power of your sunscreen. Lets start with the most common 3 most used words “SPF” which stands for Sun protection Factor. We all talk about how important it is and now moisturisers and foundations also have SPF in it. but what does it do and what are all the numbers SPF15, SPF30, SPF50 and so on mean?

We have 2 important Ultraviolet rays that come in contact with our skin that is the UVA and the UVB. SPF means the protection we receive from UVA. So mathematically speaking SPF 1 is equals to 15 mins of protection. which means SPF 15 would be 225mins of protection. SPF 30 is equals to 450mins of protection.
