Explained SPF, UVA and UVB

Revitalift SPF30 is our most powerful shield against premature skin ageing.

What is SPF?
The sun protection factor (SPF) of a sun protection product is a measure of a product's ability to protect your skin during sun exposure. The number used is determined by an international standardised and calculated test method.

According to dermatologists, 80% of premature skin ageing is due to UVA exposure*.

Revitalift SPF30 is our most powerful shield against premature skin ageing.

What are UVA and UVB rays?
Ultraviolet radiation (UVA + UVB) is the invisible killer that you can't see or feel and can be high even on cool and overcast days. Daily UVA + UVB protection is essential all year round.

What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays?
UVA rays accelerate skin ageing by damaging the skin structure. UVB rays cause burns and superficial damage to the skin.
