What does Broad Spectrum, SPF, and PA mean?
PA means Protection Grade of UVA, established in Japan. It tells users the level of protection from UVA rays.
SPF means Sun Protection Factor, and is an indicator of UVB protection
PA+ means the sunscreen provides some protection against UVA rays,
PA++ indicates moderate protection
PA+++ shows very good protective abilities against UVA rays.
Sunscreens that provide both UVA and UVB protection are termed Broad Spectrum.
Sun Salve is Broad Spectrum, which provides protection from UVA & UVB. Equivalent to PA+++
NON-NANO ZINC: Larger particles of Zinc that are above 100nm and safer than potentially harmful Nanoparticles. Zinc Oxide is the winning ingredient when it comes to Broad Spectrum Physical Sunscreen, but we need to take it one step further and talk specifically about Nano Zinc Oxide and Non-Nano Zinc oxide. This has to do with sunscreen Safety, not effectiveness.
The concern with these super small nanoparticles is that they can potentially find their way into your body by penetrating your skin and getting into your bloodstream. And while a nanoparticle might enter your bloodstream, a non-nano particle won’t, as it sits on top of your skin and blocks the harmful rays. For that reason, Non-Nano Zinc Oxide is considered safer.
While there’s not enough data to prove this theory yet, here at YBP we don’t think it’s worth the risk. Plus, nano-sized particles are so small that they can be ingested by coral reefs, or enter our bloodstream, and we don’t want that.
Having said all of that, we recommend a mineral sunscreen made with non-nano particles ALWAYS.
REEF SAFE: Hawaii, and some other beach destinations ban on chemically based sunscreen shook up the whole sunscreen market (in a good way). Some states passed a bill that will prevent the sale of sunscreen containing common UV-filtering ingredients such as Oxybenzone and Octinoxate. Why is this important? Because both have been linked to coral bleaching/damage.
SunBoost ATB Natural™: This is a proprietary blend of antioxidant, anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory agents that boosts SPF. It helps with reducing white cast so one can enjoy Non-Nano Zinc Oxide Physical Sunscreen to the fullest without feeling heavy or patchy on the skin.
The Scent in YBP Sun Salve: Naturally-derived from Jojoba, Carrot extract, and Parched Clay.
