Sun Protection Factor (SPF)

Stay protected all day long, with the right SPF.

Sun Protection Factor (SPF)
The Math

Sun Protection Factor (SPF) - rules within the UK: you can be in sun for 15 minutes without sunscreen, before burning.

Minutes allowed in the sun: SPF Number x 15. An example; SPF 30 would allow 450 minutes in the sun (7.5 hours).

The Variants

Fair skin - 10 minutes.
Normal/ Olive skin - 15 minutes.
Dark skin - 20 minutes.

If you swim in the sea or pool and or heavily sweat, then ensure you either reapply or choose a water resistant sunscreen.

For children's skin, we recommend a minimum of SPF 50.
