NATURALIS SUNSCREEN TREATMENT
The skin has two main layers: epidermis (thin, outer layer) and the dermis (thicker, inner layer). The skin has many functions and one of them is protection from the sun. The amount of melanin in the skin can effect the skin's ability to protect against sunburn and damage from ultraviolet light, as most light skinned people can tell you.
This sun's ultraviolet light has three main types, UVA, UVB and UVC. People are exposed to much, much more UVA light than UVB, but it is actually UVB that is responsible for most sunlight induced erythema (sunburns).
Sun Protection Factors (SPF)
The famous SPF rating of sunscreens is a
commonly misunderstood factor that compares protection times of different
strengths of sunscreen. This number is actually a ratio that uses the
amount of time it takes to get a sunburn in a person wearing sunscreen
versus one without protection.
For example, a person gets a sunburn in 10 minutes of sun exposure, without sunscreen. Wearing SPF 2 will protect their skin from sunburn for 20 minutes, or double their "unprotected" time it takes to burn. Wearing SPF 15 will give 150 minutes of protection or about 2 1/2 hours and SPF 50 offers 500 minutes of protection, or 8.3 hours. SPF merely gives an amount of time one is supposed to be protected from a sunburn. Interestingly, higher SPF values are associated with protection from UVB absorption. SPF 2 only blocks about 50% of UVB, while SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB and SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays.
