What SPF level is sufficient for most skin types?
For periods of longer term exposure (e.g. holidays, beach, outdoor sports), we recommend use of our sun care range of products which includes products up to SPF 40, and products specifically formulated for children. For most skin types SPF 15 to 30 should be adequate, for children’s and adults with sensitive skin SPF of 30 or higher is recommended.
It is important to apply SPF products regularly, and to use the recommended dosage for an average adult (5 - 6 teaspoons for a full body application). Direct sun exposure should be avoided between 11am and 3pm as the sun’s rays are at their strongest at this time.

What is the difference between UVA and UVB?
UVB causes initial damage to the skin’s outer layer or epidermis, resulting in sunburn. However, UVA rays penetrate deeper into the dermal layers of the skin and can destroy skin fibres, damaging the skin’s elasticity which can cause long-term effects such as premature ageing, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation.
Oriflame Cosmetics has a comprehensive sun care range, formulated using a broad spectrum of UVA and UVB protection. Our products comply with the latest EU recommendations regarding SPF and UV protection and consumer labeling requirements.
