About SPF and the Chemicals used to make hight SPF products
A higher SPF rating requires a lot more sunscreen chemicals for not a lot more hours of sun protection. SPF 15 blocks 93% while SPF 30 blocks 97% of UV radiation. SPF 15 means that if i burn after 15 minutes of direct sun exposure I will be protected by SPF15 for about 4 hours. If i used SPF30 I would be protected for about 8 hours. It important to note that the thickness of sunscreen applied will increase the length of protection time. If you are thinking wow its twice as strong you are correct – however this increase in time between applications means that some pretty scary chemicals are used – below is a list of ingredients based on weight used in a typical SPF30/50 sunscreen – NONE of these are in Perrin Naturals Sunscreen. In Australia not all of these will be listed on your sunscreen label because its not required by law.
