Dermatologist recommended. SPF-Not Enough: Sunburn Protection Factor (SPF) is not an accurate determination of a sunscreen's capability of protecting the skin from the sun's harmful rays. SPF is only an indication of protection from one wavelength of Ultraviolet light, the UVB (290nm*-320nm). UVB is the cause of early skin redness experienced during initial sun exposure. UVA (320nm-400nm) is responsible for deeper skin damage, and many of the long term destructive changes that are harmful to the skin. Unfortunately there is no official rating system to date to measure a product's UVA protection. *nm = nanometer which is a billionth of a meter. Total Block SPF 60 has been specifically formulated for individuals who require full spectrum protection from the sun's damaging effects. Total Block provides total protection from the full spectrum of UVA/UVB light. Total Block contains a complete and total photoprotective/cellular protective system. The only such topical products available, anywhere. Total Block SPF 60 cover-up is an individually customizable foundation makeup, that can be lightened or darkened to match a wide variety of skin tones. UVA Same Everyday: UVA radiation, unlike UVB, is consistently the same all day long, all month long and all year long. UVA rays present almost the same damaging effects to the skin in December at 9 am, as they do in July at 4 pm. UVA radiation is consistently damaging, and in fact, enters deeper into the skin than UVB. Since UVA damage is cumulative and penetrates through glass, everyone requires daily, year round protection.
