The sun provides many benefits, including vitamin D synthesis and improving mood. However, long-term exposure to the sun's rays can have harmful effects on our skin. Harmful UV radiation can cause burns, premature aging of the skin and increase the risk of developing skin cancer. This is why it is very important to protect the skin, and one of the most effective ways to protect it is to use products with a high protection factor.

What does SPF stand for?

SPF is a unit of measurement that indicates how effective a sunscreen product is in filtering UVB rays. It is widely believed that SPF15 "repels" 93% of the air, SPF30 97%, and SPF50 98%. This means that SPF can increase the amount of time we spend in the sun before the skin starts to redden, indicating a sunburn. In short, SPF30 means that you are protected from the sun 30 times longer than you would be without using a UV protection product, and SPF50 50 times longer.

Solar II

How are Solar I SPF30 and Solar II SPF50 different from other products on the market?

Solar I SPF30 and its successor Solar II SPF50 contain new generation filters that, in addition to UV radiation, protect the skin from infrared and visible light. They stand out with a particularly light and airy texture that is quickly absorbed and leaves no traces on the skin, and they differ from each other according to the finish they leave on the skin after application.

Both factors have light textures that do not leave a white mark, however, Solar II has a velvety feel on the skin that will suit oily skin. 

An additional special feature of the Solar II SPF50 product is the UVA-PF label. What does that actually mean? UVA protection must be at least 1/3 of UVB protection in order to have adequate protection against UVA radiation, and Solar II SPF50 can boast a UVA-PF as high as 49.1. which means one of the highest UVA-PF on the market.


How are sun protection products used correctly?

In order to protect the skin as much as possible, it is necessary to apply the product in sufficient quantity. Three full pumps are enough for the entire face and neck, but the product needs to be reapplied every few hours, i.e. after swimming, sweating and wiping with a towel, in order to maintain protection on the skin.

Using SPF products can be key to maintaining skin health and reducing the risk of sunburn, premature aging and skin cancer. Regular use of products with a protective factor can help keep the skin healthy, elastic and radiant. Regardless of the season, it is important to invest time and effort in protecting the skin from the harmful rays of the sun so that we can enjoy all the benefits of the sun without negative consequences on the skin.
