What does Broad Spectrum mean?

Broad spectrum means that the active ingredients protect against both UVA and UVB rays.

UVA Rays or ultraviolet A (long-wave) are the Aging Rays. They penetrate deep in the skin and can cause premature aging of the skin and increase your risk of skin cancer. UVA rays are present throughout the year regardless of the season and weather conditions. Additionally these rays can penetrate through the glass so when you are driving or at the office you are still being exposed to harmful rays.

UVB Rays or ultraviolet B (shortwave)- are the Burning Rays. These rays do not penetrate as deeply as the UVA rays but are the rays that cause sunburns and tanning and again increase your risk of skin cancer. UVB rays intensity can vary depending on season, time of day and location.
