We’re starting to sound like a broken record.. But when it comes to highlighting the importance of wearing sunscreen daily as a basis for a healthy skin care routine no matter the time of day, season or being indoors or outdoors we still get shocked to find out people who remain in the dark regarding this matter.
SPF is the most popular type of sun protection and stands for Sun Protection Factor. It measures the level of protection a product will give you from UVB. The higher the SPF the more the protection. An SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB, SPF 30 blocks 97%, and SPF 50 blocks 98%.
On the other hand, there’s another protection factor currently making noise; GPF. A new formula that shields skin from the harsh effects of a changing environment.. A result of the fast paced beauty industry that is constantly revealing new scientific discoveries. GPF stands for Genetic Protection Factor, it’s a sub-formula which is vital in this day and age.
How does GPF work differently from SPF?
GPF does the powerful SPF work and goes a bit further to add monumental benefits..
#1 It’s packed with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide for sun protection.
#2 Contains a DNA Enzyme Complex, which helps repair damaged DNA strands.
#3 Contains an IR Complex, which targets the damaging effects of infrared radiation by 96%.
#4 It’s also packed with Soliberine, an ingredient which scavenges the effects of UV and blue light and powerful antioxidants to protect against free radical damage.
In a nutshell, GPF offers 4 levels of protection that adapts to your own skin type.. With its antioxidant power, infrared protection, free radical damage repair and barrier effect and last but not least HEV protection..
Up until this moment, there hasn’t been enough awareness of the GPF, however, the first-ever sunscreen to contain this factor is Tetra from Priori Skincare, which, when combined with its other four levels of protection, repairs some skin damage while providing full protection to skin in a way that adapts to each individual’s specific year-round environmental changes.
