“Believe it or not, a good quality, well applied SPF15 suncare product provides only 4% less protection than a SPF30! I recommend SPF15 for everyday use and Snowberry Active Outdoor SPF30 for when we are exposed to higher intensities of the sun’s rays (beach days, festivals, BBQ’s etc).”
Proper sun protection should be absolutely safe and non chemical.
Snowberry’s Everyday SPF15 is completely natural, with a deliciously light texture you will love on your skin. Everyday SPF15 is a certified broad spectrum product, which means that you are being protected against both UVB and UVA rays.
UVA damage is caused deep down in the Dermal layer of skin. It influences premature aging, pigmentation and can even lead to suppression of the immune system in severely damaged cases.
UVB damage is the burn you see and feel on your skin, and plays a big role in the development of skin cancer.
Many dermatologists warn against day creams premixed with a SPF, because the SPF used in these products is generally not sufficient in quality or quantity to provide protection, and they may not be certified to true SPF standards.
SPF15 provides about 93% protection against UVB, and surprisingly, SPF30 provides just 4% more. Source
Many traditional sunscreens contain parabens, cinnamates, benzophenones and camphor derivatives – all of which are considered responsible for damaging coral reefs (University research indicates that upwards of 4,000 tonnes of sunscreen products are washed onto coral reefs around the world every year, and are contributing to coral bleaching).
By using Snowberry sun protection, you are also helping to protect our world’s colourful coral reefs, which are slowly being bleached and damaged by our waste products, including chemicals in sunscreens.
