SPF is short for sun protection factor and it is based on how much longer it would take to get a burn with wearing sunscreens

i think the website is down.
SPF is important, it measures the protection for our skin. I usually use at least SPF 30

Always apply at least one tablespoon of sunscreen on your skin before leaving the house.

Also make sure you buy at least SPF50 and get the broad spectrum one because it protects you from UVA and UVB.

I know the higher SPF the longer would be the protection. Those creams are not actually blocking the sun, they absorb it and of course there is a certain limit

I understand recently that up to 50+ SPF and then beyond, say 100, it becomes insignificant.
Meaning 100 is not going to be twice as effective as 50+
The reason also due to countries not recognizing any product that has more than 50 SPF.
Hence the 50+ came to light, just a marketing gimmick to say their product exceeds 50 SPF.
There are also 2 types of sunblock.
One would absorb
One would reflect

The Australians are very strict on this ....

No "waterproof" claim and no "> SPF 50" claim ....
