The suncream SPF 15 contains DMS® components and sun protection filters against UVA- and UVB-radiation. The UVA-factor amounts at least 1/3 of the UVB-factor.
dermaviduals® suncream SPF 15 complies with the European Commission Recommendation for a medium level of protection. Creams with SPF 15 provide about 93.3 % protection from UVB-radiation or in other words, they allow to stay about 15 times longer in the sun before an erythema (sun burn) will develop. Since the thermal radiation of the sun (infrared) is quite stressful for the skin it is recommended to expose your skin in moderation despite sun screen. Excessive sun exposure is a serious health threat. Particularly babies and toddlers should not be exposed to direct sun light.
Apply the cream before the skin is exposed to the sun and let it absorb into the skin. It is recommended to reapply the cream on the dry skin if you are sweating or after swimming. Also reapply cream regularly to maintain protection. It is recommended to use a sufficient amount of the suncream in order to achieve the labeled factor 15 – if you do not apply enough cream you are less protected
