Most people have heard about Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation and the harmful effects it has on their skin, but what are the specifics? There are two kinds of UV rays that can reach past the atmosphere: UVB and UVA. UVB rays, much like they act upon the surface of the ocean, really only reach the top layers of your skin and give you those dreaded sunburns. UVA rays penetrate far deeper into your skin and can not only cause irreversible damage, but can often times lead to forms of skin cancer.
You can check your UV index each and every day to know your risk of exposure before you leave the house. The US Environment Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a UV index forecast to help you prevent overexposure to the sun's radiation.
On the surface, it all seems the same. Why should you buy one sunscreen with SPF whatever over the other? SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and measures how effective your sunscreen can deflect UVB rays. This keeps your skin from burning but will only provide some protection from cancer causing UVA rays as its only screening the sun to diminish its effects like a filter. However, Save Your Tattoo is a full-spectrum sunblock, meaning your are covered from both UVA and UVB rays completely. Our formula will help you keep your skin healthy and your tattoo as bright as they day you got it without leaving a white smear like older sunblocks.
