What is an SPF rating?
What does it mean for you?
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. Banana Boat recommends re-application at regular intervals and after swimming, excessive perspiration and towel drying.
Banana Boat offers a wide range of SPF50+ sunscreens. To find out more about SPF50, visit the What is SPF50+ page.
