And it’s important to remember that sunscreen is not a suit of armour, and it’s only one part of sun protection. Wearing a hat, wearing sun-protective clothing, seeking shade and avoiding the sun in the middle of the day are super important. It’s worth noting that the methods used in these consumer tests and in the INCI Decoder test aren’t quite the same as the label test. The biggest difference is the number of volunteers – for an SPF result that goes on the label, the results have to be consistent over at least 10 volunteers. In the consumer tests they usually just test on 5 or 10 people and don’t talk about consistency. One thing you might see if you’re shopping for an Asian or Korean-specific sunscreen is something called PA+, PA++, or PA+++. This is a Japanese measurement that’s widely used now. It’s based on something called the Persistent Pigment Darkening reaction reading at two to four hours of sun exposure. Korean sunscreens are K-beauty’s hot trending product, with better protection, skincare benefits and more lightweight finishes reasons some people prefer them But if you add more of the filters you already had, you might exceed the regulatory limits, or they might solidify out (you get crystals in the sunscreen formula and it doesn’t work anymore). Adding different filters can get around this.

Part of this is because you can’t see how continuous the film is microscopically – it’s far too low resolution for that.

With all the social media outrage directed at Purito’s false SPF claims, it’s as though the people being outraged are focused on the wrong thing. They should instead be clamoring for regulation / standardization on measuring UVA. Reply

Purito Sunscreen Scandal and What Happened With the Purito Sunscreen Scandal and

There is still the possibility that the sample sent to the European labs was a particularly bad batch, or that the sample sent for the original testing in the Korean lab was a particularly good batch. The samples for the INCI Decoder test were also put into a different plastic container and then sent off for testing, so there is a possibility there that the sunscreen reacted with the container. Someone did point out that it says yellow whereas the Purito sunscreen is actually closer to white. It’s really subjective what colour a sunscreen is, but that could potentially be a sign of an issue. Are Asian sunscreens dodgy? PPD is based on different people who are exposed to UVA light. The test subjects are analyzed based on how long it takes them to tan. Then, the results are compared between protected and unprotected skin. I don’t disagree with the idea of championing better testing, just the assumptions you’ve made on the daily sunscreen wearer. Reply As mentioned, the people wearing sunscreen on a daily basis aren’t doing so for health reasons, but instead for vanity. And where vanity is concerned, UVA protection should be paramount. There’s also some things that still aren’t standardised and maybe can’t be standardised. For example, the person spreading the sunscreen is meant to use a light pressure. But one person’s light might not be another person’s light, and it’s pretty much impossible for the person to use the exact same pressure for every single sample they’reAfter 4.5 years, the daily sunscreen group showed no increased signs of aging. The control group (sunscreen use whenever they felt like it) had a 40% higher incidence for skin cancer during the trial. Over the following 15 years, the daily sunscreen group had a 73% lower incidence for skin cancer. And now? It’s actually a lot harder to measure a higher SPF. With these you can see that the upper limit is somewhere around double the lower limit – and remember this is considered good reproducibility. Reproducibility between countries Klairs is one of two brands that caught the run-off from the Purito SPF controversy. Its Soft Airy UV Essence has a similar formula to Purito’s Centella Green Level Unscented Sun, and both sunscreens were manufactured in the same lab. The reality is that consumer groups frequently test all types of sunscreens, and in many cases, they have a lower SPF than their label indicates. For example, in 2016, 23 out of 60 tested sunscreens from the U.S. had less than half the SPF that was labeled. However, the latest hero category in K-beauty is sunscreens, with much of the hype coming from social media.
