WHAT is SPF?
Sun Protection Factor. This measures how long a sunscreen will protect you from UV-B rays. Basically, SPF 30 means you can stay in the sun 30x longer without getting burnt. So if you typically burn in 20 min, you are now protected for 600 minutes (10 hours).
UV-A rays are long waves and penetrate deep into the skin, causing premature skin aging. UV-B rays are short waves and cause sunburns. Luckily Cardon protect you against both types. Think A for aging and B for burns.
What IF IT’S NOT SUNNY?
Clouds only block 20% of UV rays. Sand, water, and snow actually reflect UV rays, increasing the damage you get. Rain or shine, it’s SPF time.
HOW do i apply this?
Squeeze out about a nickel-size amount on your hand. Dab small amounts around your face and rub in. Sunscreen should be applied 15-20 minutes prior to sun exposure. It’s recommended you reapply every 2 hours when outdoors.
Fun Fact: Sunscreen breaks down due to sun exposure, not time. So if you’re mostly indoors just applying once in the morning should get you through the day.
WHEN WILL I RUN OUT?
Our bottles should last you one month of daily use. And, when you do, we'll ship a new one to your door!
