This product is an effective protection against sunburn and sun exposure. To use, apply liberally on face and body.

"You don't need anything over SPF 20."
Most of us think that a sunscreen with a rating of SPF 30 is twice as good as one with a rating of SPF 15. But experts say this is not necessarily correct.
“SPF is not a consumer-friendly number,” says Florida dermatologist James M. Spencer, MD. “It is logical for someone to think that an SPF of 30 is twice as good as an SPF of 15 and so on. But that is not how it works.”
According to Spencer, an SPF 15 product blocks about 94% of UVB rays; an SPF 30 product blocks 97% of UVB rays; and an SPF 45 product blocks about 98% of rays.
“After that, it just gets silly,” he says. (click here to read full article)
What the article is really saying is that between SPF 15 and SPF 45, or any number after that, the difference in sun protection is not really all that significant. Another article makes a similar observation:
What I thought was interesting though, is the percentage of UVB that SPF blocks (or absorbs):
SPF 15 blocks 94%
SPF 20 blocks 96%
SPF 30 blocks 97%
SPF 45 and above blocks 98% – 98.5%
Notice that minor difference when you get above SPF15? In a host of other countries, manufacturers are not allowed to show any rating above 30 – 45, since this is misleading to the public. Some people think SPF60 is twice the protection as SPF30, when it’s actually only 1.5% more effective. A lot of researchers believe that you really don’t need anything over SPF20.

So what does it mean when we say that ONO Sun Blocker 30 has a rating of SPF 30? It means that ONO Sunscreen gives ENOUGH protection under the sun, and that another sunscreen with a higher rating will probably not make that much difference.
