Korean sunscreens are far better than any other region ones. Because they offer more variety, more protection (UVA and UVB), and better formulation. K-sunscreens are always lightweight, no greasy, and easily spreadable and leave no cakey residue as compare to western’s ones. UV radiation from the sun is transmitted in 3 wavelengths.
- UVC does not penetrate the earth’s surface, so we need to protect our skin from UVA and UVB.
- UVB can cause skin irritation and can cause skin cancer. SPF protects against UVB. SP15 blocks 93% UVB, SPF30 blocks 97% UVB, and SPF50 blocks 98% UVB.
- UVA penetrates deep into skin elastin and can cause skin tan, wrinkles, white spots, skin aging, PA is an index which protects against UVA. There are three stages of PA+, PA++, PA+++, and PA+++. The higher the pluses, the higher the protection level.
Conventional sunscreen feels greasy, tacky, and heavy under makeup. The truth is that all people do not have the same kind of skin type. Every skin type needs different formula which takes care of the moisturizing level and sun protection at the same time. A Korean Beauty brand Thanks You Farmer has 3 of sunscreens editions that cater to all the skin types’ i.e. oily, dry, and combination.
