Calypso Sun Care FAQ's

Q: Do higher factors mean you will not tan?
A: You will still tan with a high factor but it will take a little longer, your tan will last longer as your skin will have more time to acclimatise to the sun.

Q: What are SPF levels?
A: For example a SPF 30 sunscreen offers 30 times the protection than if you did not use any sunscreen, that means 30 times longer before you start to burn.

Q: How much Sun screen should be used per application?
A: Around 35ml of sunscreen needs to be applied for full coverage.

Q: Is Once A Day Sunscreen effective?
A: Once A Day Sunscreens keep their effectiveness by binding more strongly to the skin, so they last longer. You should be extra careful to apply enough of the product and make sure to cover all exposed skin.
