SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. Below is the approximate percentage of UVB rays blocked depending on SPF rating. The difference is suprisingly small. A higher SPF helps if you are fair skinned or have a history of skin cancer. Remember, no sunscreen blocks 100% of UV rays.
The main thing that affects protection level is applying it correctly. Dermatologists recommend using 3 tablespoons of sunscreen to protect your whole body. SPF ratings are significantly decreased if you don’t apply enough. Most people only apply 1/3 of the sunscreen they need. Make sure you use enough and don’t neglect hard to reach and easily forgotten places like your ears, feet and upper back.
Oxybenzone is a widely used sunscreen ingredient. It is approved and recommended by the FDA and Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective sunscreen and it has been in use for over 20 years. Oxybenzone is used in combination with other sunscreens to help cover the broad spectrum of UV rays.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) , a Washington DC based lobbying group, popularized claims about the toxicity of Oxybenzone. Old research on rodents suggested that Oxybenzone could interact with hormones when fed to the rodents in extremely high doses. There is no evidence that Oxybenzone poses a risk to human health.
“If you covered your entire body with oxybenzone in the concentrations that are in sunscreens and used it every day, it would take over 30 years to get to the point of what these rats were fed in these studies,” says dermatologist Darrell Rigel, MD, FAAD, who is a clinical professor of dermatology at New York University Langone Medical Center.
Our Original line Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotions, Continuous Spray Sunscreens and Clear Formula Zinc Oxide contain small amounts of Oxybenzone well below the amounts recommended by the FDA. If you still have concerns about Oxybenzone check out our Signature Line which is Oxybenzone free.
We do use Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide in our Signature products and in our Clear Zinc Oxide that are nano sized. Claims about negative effects of nano-particles and possible toxicity are not backed up by scientific research. All studies including the most recent one on the subject from January of 2012 showed that nano-particles do not enter the blood stream and do not pass the outer layer of skin. Even the Environmental Working Group (EWG) agrees on the safety of nano-particles, “we find nano-scale zinc and titanium to be reasonable choices for use in sunscreen, particularly given the known hazards of UV exposure.”
People who avoid sunscreen often do so because they leave a white or ghostly residue on their skin. Nano-Particles make it possible to make a sunscreen formula that is mineral based without the white residue. The last thing we want is for our friends and family to avoid sunscreen because it’s a pain in the ass to put on.
All of our sunscreens have the highest possible Water Resistance rating of 80 minutes. Waterproof is no longer a claim that can be made according to the ruling made by the FDA in 2011. There are only two allowed Water Resistant ratings, 80 minute or 40 minute. Advances in research have allowed companies to formulate sunscreens that adhere well to your skin. However, regardless of the claims, you will have to reapply if you’re sweating heavily or doing activity in the wate
