Do you really know what SPF means?
SPF standards for “sun protection factor.” The number, theoretically, represents the amount of time you can stay in the sun without getting burned. For example, SPF 20 would mean you can stay in the sun 20 times longer as opposed to not having it applied. However, that doesn’t mean the higher the better.
The information in the health, wellness, skin care/beauty industry can be misleading or confusing. Sunscreen is a vital part for all individuals and their everyday life. Our professional medical team has chosen two sunscreens for your everyday use that is best suited for your safety. Both brands we carry are physical sunscreens. Check them out below:
