What is SPF and how does it work?
Sunscreen helps protect your skin from UV rays, which cause sunburn and the accumulation of cell-damaging free radicals. SPF is one aspect that determines the effectiveness of a sunscreen.
What is SPF?
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It measures the level of UVB protection a sun protection product will give you. All NIVEA SUN sunscreens provide broad spectrum protection, which means they also protect you from UVA rays.
How does SPF work?
The SPF indicates the length of time that your skin is protected from sunburn, depending on your skin type. For example, if you start getting sunburned after five minutes in the sun without any sunscreen, applying a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 would protect you for 30 x five minutes (or 150 minutes) before you begin to burn.
We recommend using a sunscreen with SPF50 in conjunction with protective clothing, a hat & sunglasses.
