Banana Boat busts sun safety myths

How well do you know your sunscreen?

Did you know that SPF stands for “Sun Protection Factor” and is a multiplier which tells you how much longer you can remain in the sun without burning when wearing a sunscreen?

Many Australians apply too little sunscreen, resulting in achieving an SPF of between 50-80% less than that specified on the product. Factors such as how much sunscreen you apply, the weather, and skin types will affect your level of protection.

Make sure you check the labels while purchasing and watch this video to make sure you’re using Banana Boat sunscreen correctly.
