But how does Sun Protection Factor (SPF) work?
The 25 in SPF means you can approximately stay in the sun 25 times longer than you would without any protection. You can work out the efficiency percentage by how many times 25 goes in to 100. SPF25 would equal 4. Minus this number from 100. Equals 96% protection. You can use this formula for all SPF’s.
Shelf life 3 years, use within 12 months once opened.
THE SHADE STORY
In June 2014 Tania Wedin, Founder and Managing Director of Not the Norm felt frustrated with the lack of all natural suncreams on the market. After some research she come up with a basic but effective cream for her daughter.
Using just 4 ingredients to moisturise and protect skin from a spectrum of damaging UVA and UVB rays, shade is SPF 25. Like many parents Tania wanted to avoid dangerous chemicals and irritants.
6 years later, Shade has sold exceptionally well through her shop Not The Norm, with over 300 retailers throughout the UK and Europe. Shade regularly features in magazines and blogs having won an array of awards including The Green Parent Awards and The Janey Loves Awards.
