Ombrelle’s sun protection can be used daily, all year-round on the body, face and hands. The sunscreens use chemicals to absorb UV rays. The sunblock physically deflects UV rays away from the skin. This Ombrelle sunscreen provides broad spectrum photostable protection against both UVA and UVB rays. In adults, the broad spectrum sunscreen also blocks UVA rays to help minimize the long term effects of sun exposure, such as premature wrinkles. The sunscreen with SPF 15-30 is a good standard; SPF 30 is preferred for fair skinned children. SPF 15 may prevent up to 93% of UVB rays, while SPF 30 offers a protection rate of 97%. For most people SPF 15 is adequate but if you have fair skin or burn easily, you might want to consider a higher SPF.

While the SPF protects your skin for several hours against sunburn, you still need to reapply sunscreen according to your activity. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends reapplying your sunscreen every two hours and more often after sweating or swimming. It is always a good idea to avoid sun exposure between 10.00 am and 4.00 pm.
Sunscreen cannot prevent skin cancer by itself but with proper use, sun protective clothing, hats and swimwear it is largely preventable with an overall sun protection regime.
