The SPF (Sun Protection Factor) listed on a bottle of sunscreen is a measure of how well the product protects your skin from the sunburn. Sunburn, which damages the skin, can cause cancer and also result in premature aging.
SPF is mainly a measure of UV-B (the ultraviolet radiation from the sun that causes sunburn) protection.
SPF ranges from 1 to 45 or above. Higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen offers against UV-B.
An SPF 15 sunscreen allows a person to stay out in the sun 15 times longer than normal. A person without SPF protection can stay out in the sun for up to 10 minutes without getting sunburnt. Whereas if you apply a sunscreen with SPF 15 you can enjoy the sun for 150 minutes (2.5hours).
SPF numbers can also be found on clothing and other sun protection gear. SPF's of various types of clothing: · Nylon Stockings - SPF 2 · Hats - SPF 3-6 · Summer-weight clothing - SPF 6.5 · Sun-protective clothing - up to SPF 300
