It’s essential to know exactly what you’re buying so that you’re aware of the level of protection you’re getting, so here’s our easy guide to understanding SPF. What is SPF? The sun produces two types of ultraviolet rays; UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are the most commonly discussed. They tend to impact the outside layers of the skin, known as the epidermis. UVB rays are the cause of surface sunburn, and of many kinds of skin cancer which can be related to sun damage, such as melanoma. For example, if you wear a sun cream with SPF 30 , you would expect to have about 30 times more protection than if you did not use it, and it will take you 30 times longer to burn. A sun cream with SPF 50 only allows 2% of UVB rays to penetrate your skin, compared to an SPF 30 product, which 3% of UVB rays can get past, meaning that 50% more harmful ultraviolet rays can reach your skin with the lower factor. SPF stands for ‘Sun Protection Factor’, and is a number which indicates the level of protection a sun cream product provides against ultraviolet, or UV rays. Technically, it’s a measurement of the length of time for which a product can keep your skin safe from sun damage . The SPF factor is generally intended to tell us about the level of protection against UVB rays, however in recent years there has been more attention to the impact of UVA rays. UVA vs. UVB Rays

The best sun creams and SPF products are those with broad spectrum protection, meaning that they protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Products with this quality are generally labelled to specify that they offer broad or full spectrum protection. Hawaiian Tropic has been a trusted brand for generations. All of our SPF products are PeTA accredited – Cruelty Free & Vegan. Quality sun protection combined with indulgent skin care and of course – the unmistakable tropical scent! UVA rays can penetrate much deeper into the dermis, the lower level of the skin. These rays are the source of the sought after sun tan, but they are also associated with the development of lines, wrinkles and signs of ageing. They can also cause further varieties of skin cancer. How the SPF scale works The SPF scale is intended to tell you how long a product can protect against the sun’s ultraviolet rays, specifically UVB rays, so the factor should tell you how many times longer you will be protected compared to if you did not wear any sun cream.
