Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How are Korean sunscreens different from regular sunscreens in the market?
A. Sun care is a key in Korean skincare philosophy. Koreans make sure that they get the best protection from the harmful rays of the sun and that is the reason there sunscreens are quite innovative in formula (think - lightweight, non-comedogenic!), texture (refreshing, non-oily) and do not leave any white cast behind. Manufacturers in Korea produce sunscreens with substantial UVA protection and high SPF content (30, 50 and higher). On Asian sunscreens (including Korean sunscreens) you may notice a PA indicator followed by plus signs. PA stands for protection grade of UVA rays. It is a rating system created in Japan to indicate the level of protection from UVA rays and is commonly used across many Asian brands to provide a thorough UV rating reference. This rating is based on the Persistent Pigment Darkening (PPD) reaction reading at 2-4 hours of sun exposure. The more plus signs labelled on sunscreen - the higher the protection grade!
Circling back to the question, what sets apart Korean sunscreens just like our Bravocado SPF 50+ PA++++ Sunscreen Gel is that these are formulated using a great blend of active sunscreen ingredients that protect your skin from harmful UV Rays. The formulations are packed with natural ingredients, are lightweight, easy to apply and work well for people of colour (no ghastly white cast!) here.
Q. Is sunscreen necessary indoors?
A. Even if you are at home, you are exposed to sunlight through the windows and balconies. There are two types of ultra-violet rays - UVA and UVB. Both have damaging effects on skin. While UVB rays are filtered out by glasses and are known to damage skin's only outermost layer, UVA rays can penetrate clouds, fog and glasses and can get in touch with your skin leading to premature aging, collagen degradation and also increase the risk of cancer. Indoors, your skin also comes in contact with Blue light. The source can be anything from your mobile phones, laptops to smartwatches. This blue light has a biological effect similar to that of UVA. We advise applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen just like our lightweight Bravocado SPF 50+ PA++++ Sunscreen Gel that not only protects your skin from harmful sun rays, infrared waves, skin reactions and sunburn but also nourishes and soothes skin. This daily use sunscreen is also powered by antioxidants like vitamin E that neutralize the free radicals, reduce oxidative stress and prevent photoaging of skin. It is best to apply Bravocado SPF 50+ PA++++ Sunscreen Gel in the morning post your skincare regime. Reapply every 4 hours if you are outdoors and every 5 to 6 hours if you are indoors.
Q. Is broad-spectrum sunscreen good for skin?
A. All skincare experts and dermatologists approve that if there is one skincare product you should not miss, it would be a good broad-spectrum sunscreen. What exactly is a broad-spectrum sunscreen and why should you use it?
A broad spectrum sunscreen protects your skin from sun’s harmful ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays that penetrate our atmosphere and damage skin health. UVA rays also known as 'aging rays' lead to wrinkles, discolouration and loss of elasticity. These are known to penetrate the upper layers of skin and can pass through clouds, fog and window glasses, causing damage even on cloudy, rainy days. UVB rays also known as 'burning rays', are more prominent in summers and are a leading cause of sun burn and skin cancer.
