Sun Care

Sunscreen, also known as sunblock, sun cream or suntan lotion, is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects some of the sun's ultraviolet radiation and thus helps protect against sunburn.

What's the difference between UVA and UVB?

  • Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays - make the skin tan;
  • Ultraviolet B (UVB) rays - cause skin to burn. 

The SPF rating on a sunscreen bottle stands for Sun Protection Factor, a measurement of how long you can stay outside during the day and be protected from the sun’s burn-causing UVB rays. UVA rays are present, too; this is where the PA+ rating system comes into play.

Some sunscreens include PA+ rating on their products. The letters “PA” followed by plus signs (PA+, PA++, PA+++, and PA++++) on a label are a rating system developed in Japan to represent how much UVA protection the product offers.

What each PA rating means?

  • PA+= Some UVA protection.
     
  • PA++ =Moderate UVA protection. 
     
  • PA+++= High UVA protection.
     
  • PA++++= Extremely High UVA protection.
