What exactly is an SPF?

Living in Australia means most of us grow up in the sun and from an early age we’re educated on how to be sun safe. From the good old Slip, Slop, Slap message right through to the consequences of too much sun exposure and the signs of sun damage to look out for – we’d consider ourselves an educated bunch.

But when it comes to sunscreen and an SPF rating, how educated are we really? In many cases, we look at the numbers and automatically assume that ‘bigger is better,’ but it’s a little more complex than that.

Technology and manufacturing advancements in recent years have meant that zinc oxide based physical sunscreens are no longer super thick and hard to rub in versions that you remember from your childhood.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Did you know that Zinc Oxide was also a great little multi-tasker? Not only is it an all-natural mineral deflector of both UVA and UVB rays. It also helps to heal and regenerate skin.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That's why we love popping it in the blender for our Sun Juice Tinted and Untinted SPF moisturisers to help keep your skin protected and soothed throughout the day.
