Last but still very important, I’d like to write a bit about SPF, why SPF is important for us, and about Marina UV White Extra SPF 15.
Why we need sunscreen?
Sunrays can be healthy, but being exposured too much could cause problems (even a fatal one like skin cancer!) Uv rays damaged our epidermal layer, causing hyperpigmentation, dehydration, and any other permanent damage, including making it looks older than it should be. Living in a tropical country such as Indonesia makes us need to wear a decent sunscreen to protect our skin from UVA and UVB. The importance of using both UVB and UVA protection cannot be emphasized enough.
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. The number is determined experimentally indoors by exposing human subjects to a light spectrum meant to mimic noontime sun. Some subjects wear sunscreen and others do not. The amount of light that induces redness in sunscreen-protected skin, divided by the amount of light that induces redness in unprotected skin is the SPF. It is mainly a measure of UVB protection and ranges from 1 to 45 or above.
A sunscreen with an SPF of 15 filters 94% of the UVB. Basically, the protection of SPF 15 doesn’t escalate linearly. For example, SPF 10 protects protects skin 90% from UVB, SPF 15 protects gives as much as 94%, while SPF 30 filters 97% of the UVB, and SPF 45 filters approx 98%, which is not the double amount of SPF 30.
There is currently no uniform measure of UVA absorption. There are broad-spectrum sunscreens that protect against UVA and UVB radiation although it is important to remember that the SPF does not predict UVA protection.
Marina UV White Extra SPF 15
Marina UV White Extra SPF 15 protects our skin from the danger of UVB, as well as hydrate it and making it looks more radiant. It has SPF 15 which is perfect for daily use, it blocked UVB so you don’t need to hide your skin during days and could freely let them exposed without the worry of being sunburned, or having skin problems afterwards.
