Why use an SPF 15 rather than SPF 30 or SPF 50?
How to Use
You may think if the SPF is ‘higher’ then your sun protection will equivalently rise too. However that isn’t the case. While an SPF 15 will block around 93 percent of UVB rays, doubling the SPF to 30 will block 97 percent; SPF50 blocks 98%. That’s just a 4 or 5 percent increase – for what would appear to be double the dose or more.
Dermatologists and the Cancer Council say there is no real difference between using an SPF 15 or 30 and using SPF 50 or higher.
SPF levels are also a gauge of how long it takes to become sunburned compared to how long it takes to burn without wearing sunscreen. If you generally take 20 minutes to burn, an SPF 15 should allow you to go 300 minutes before burning. However it is not all recommended nor is it safe to go 300 minutes in the sun before putting on more sunscreen. Ever.
Generally an SPF 15 is sufficient, especially if it can be worn when swimming. For maximum protection against prolonged exposure to the sun it is highly recommended to also wear protective clothing, a hat and effective sunglasses.
Remember, all sunscreens must be reapplied every two hours regardless of SPF.
