SPF IS A MEASUREMENT OF ONLY UVB

UVA (ULTRA VIOLET A)
Penetrates and damages the skin's thickest and deepest layer, the dermis, breaking down collagen along the way.

    UVA Notes:
  • Penetrates clouds
  • Penetrates untreated window glass
  • Harmful from sun up to sun down

UVB (ULTRA VIOLET B)
Causes your skin to burn, your body's mostly unsuccessful attempt at blocking the UV light from going deeper.

    UVB Notes:
  • Penetrates clouds
  • Harmful from about 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
