SPF is not enough
Time for better protection
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. The SPF number is intended to represent the maximum amount of time you can spend in the sun before your skin begins to burn. The problem is that SPF only measures a sunscreen’s ability to filter ultraviolet B called UVB. It doesn’t measure ultraviolet A – called UVA which is important for health; cancer prevention, skin immune system, skin thickness, elasticity, firmness, skin allergies, and pigmentation. UVA rays have the longest wavelength, and thus they’re able to reach into the deepest layers of your skin. So, even if have SPF 100, it won’t be enough to protect you from sun damage on its own.
300% more UVA protection
AgeScreen® gives you 300% more protection from UVA rays than popular broad spectrum sunscreens*
The best sunscreen Australia
UVA light accounts for 95% of the UV rays that reach the Earth, passing through clouds, windows, and our skin. UVA rays penetrate much deeper than UVB rays. UVA rays go through skin layers, causing DNA damage and massive amounts of free radicals.
How to choose the best sun screen for the face?
We often get asked which sunscreen is best. Unfortunately, most SPF on the market today offer only marginal UVA protection. Broad spectrum means that it should provide one-third of ultraviolet A, called UVA, to that of ultraviolet B, called UVB (measured as SPF on your label). That means an SPF 30 broad spectrum only has a UVA-PF of 10. Moreover, many broad spectrum sun care products still don’t have a-n-y UVA protection (US, Canada). Skinara tells you its protection from UVA rays.
SPF 40 and SPF 50 differ by 0.5%, but none of these factors have anything to do with UVA rays, which can penetrate all the way to the dermis, the deepest layer of your skin. Something significantly more important than the 0.5% variation between the two primary SPF values. The UVA protection rating is not yet required, so you should ask your favorite brand what it is. Skinara AgeScreen exceeds the required UVA protection standard by 300 percent.
Know your UVA as well as UVB (SPF) ratings
AgeScreen® Protection Factors have been independently rated by accredited testing laboratories as UVA-PF of 45 and SPF of 40. AgeScreen® has been awarded for ultimate 5 Star Boots Ultra High UVA protection in the UK.
Photostability is the key to performance
Although sunscreens are regulated in most countries, testing for photostability is still not mandatory. If it has low photostability the SPF will drop quickly and its ingredients can become toxic to your skin. It is important for all sun care products but especially sunscreen for face. We work with industry experts to ensure AgeScreen® has excellent photostability.

SPF – Sun Protection Factor measures a product’s ability to prevent UVB redness and sunburn. SPF of 30 will block out 97% of the sun’s UVB rays. However SPF of 50 only blocks out 1% more than SPF of 30 and no SPF blocks 100% of rays. Whatever the SPF rating all sun care products need re-application. Remember that SPF alone is not a measure of protection against UVA and other wavelengths of light.
