A sunscreen’s SPF determines how much of the UVB rays the sunscreen filters out. For example: SPF 15 filters out 93% of UVB rays, SPF 30 filters out 97% of UVB rays while SPF 50 filters out 98% of the UVB rays.
Broad spectrum sunscreens protect you from both UVA & UVB rays! And we need protection from both of these as the UVB damages the upper layer of the skin causing a sunburn while UVA goes deeper than UVB and causes wrinkles and photo-ageing!
The two main types of the sun protection active ingredients: CHEMICAL & PHYSICAL
CHEMICAL - Avobenzone, Benzophenone like ingredients absorb UV rays and reduce the penetration of these rays.
PHYSICAL - Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide makes a protective layer on the skin and deflect UV rays.
If you have a sensitive skin we recommend you to go for a physical sunscreen with soothing ingredients:
