Skin Cancer Information
The SPF number tells you how long the sun’s UV radiation would take to redden your skin when using the product exactly as directed versus the amount of time without any sunscreen. So ideally, with SPF 30, it would take y0 times longer to burn than if you weren’t wearing sunscreen.
An SPF 30 allows about 3 % UVB rays to hit your skin. An SPF of 50 allows about 2 % of those rays through. That may seem a small difference until you realise the SPF 30 allows 50% more UV radiation onto your skin.
Under ideal conditions (like in a laboratory), a sunscreen with higher SPF protection and broad-spectrum coverage offers more protection against sunburn, UVA damage and DNA damage than comparable products with lower SPF values.
But real life is not like a lab. In real life, products with very high SPFs often create a false sense of security. People who use them tend to stay out in the sun much longer. They may skip reapplying.
Furthermore, you may think they don’t need to seek shade, wear a hat or cover up with clothing. They end up getting a lot more UV damage, which, of course, defeats the purpose.
For people with a history or high risk of skin cancer, genetic diseases such as albinism or xeroderma pigmentation or certain immune disorders, SPF 50 may not be enough. The same goes for specific scenarios, such as hiking, skiing at high altitudes, or vacationing near the equator.
