Dermatologically Tested vs. Non Tested Sunscreen - Learn what makes a difference!

Be more radiant than the sun by not letting its heat affect your skin. The UV rays of the sun can have an impact on your skin. Sunscreens reduce the risk of skin damage and help you have youthful skin. 

A high blend and coverage SPF sunscreen lets you stay carefree. It blocks the exposure by creating a protective film like a mirror and reflects the rays. It is best to prevent sunburn, premature ageing, and early signs of skin cancer. Give your skin the best protection by using dermatologically tested sunscreen. Dive into the Lotus Herbals Sun Safe range and be surprised!

Getting to know sunscreen

Walking out without a shield makes your skin vulnerable to sun damage. Sunscreen is a protective substance to protect your skin against the sun. It contains active organic and inorganic ingredients suitable for all skin types.  Every sunscreen comes with an SPF value. It indicates the protection level of the sunscreen. The higher the SPF value, the better the protection. It comes in various forms like creams, lotions, and sprays and can address multiple skin concerns, including acne, oily skin, and more. The Lotus Herbals sunscreen range offers it all so that no skin goes out bare in the sun!

Things to know before you invest in sunscreen

No sunscreen can offer 100% defense against the sun's rays. But you can choose the maximum protection by knowing what to look for in your sunscreen! 

Know the look before you buy

The end look after sunscreen application can differ. While the Lotus Herbals Matte Gel range offers you a matte finish with no oil, the Lotus Herbals Daily Multi-functional SPF cream gives you an instant BB glow. All our sunscreens serve perfectly as a foundation base and are very light to carry.

A check on SPF is a must

Picking SPF 30 is the bare minimum. It helps to block 97% of the sun's UVB rays. The sunscreen SPF 50 protects against 98% of the UVB rays. If you have fair skin, opt for a higher SPF for better protection. We offer a wide range of sunscreen SPF to let you pick as per your needs!

Rush towards the natural ingredient aisle

Know what goes into your sunscreen. Go for an eco-conscious brand that makes you feel good with every use. Choosing an all-natural range like Lotus Herbals Sun Safe is the best. We use gentle ingredients like orange, birch, mallow, berries, etc., that keep your skin supple, balanced, and hydrated at all times!

Skin acne needs individual attention

Sunscreens are for all. If your skin is prone to acne, select it efficiently. Select a range that offers a UV rays barrier and a defense against acne. It should include ingredients that prevent acne and diminish the marks. We carefully craft our Sun Safe products to help you enjoy the dual benefit!

There is a product for your skin type

Various skin types come with different needs. The best sunscreen for dry skin, dermatologist recommended, and oily skin does not go along. Each uses its own set of ingredients that will suit and soothe the skin. Know your skin type and shop wisely, for we have it all! Lotus Herbals allows you to choose from its range of cream, lotion, and gel based sunscreens with various SPF, ranging from 20 to 70 PA+++. 

The PA+ factor

While the SPF measures protection against UVB rays, PA is for UVA rays. It is a protection grade that measures its defense against UVA rays of the sun. It ranges from low to high. PA+++, offering 60-70% block, is strong enough. It is considered a good grade of protection.

Know the best of the tested and non-tested sunscreen world

The market is full of products that lure you into buying. Not overwhelming yourself needs insight into the difference between dermatologically-tested and non-tested sunscreen. Learn them all!

  • The tested products cover a broader spectrum of protection, while the non-tested products have a narrow range. 
  • The tested products are safer on the skin, non-toxic, and chemical-free. Non-tested products may or may not be secure. 
  • The tested products come with higher accuracy on skin types, while the non-tested products are not that accurate.
  • The test is vital for mineral filters to pass the safety check for the skin. Only zinc and titanium oxides are safe. 
  • The tested products have labels that make it easier for consumers to choose and select, unlike the non-tested sunscreens.

Dermatologists are the filter of accuracy, precision, and safety before you test a product on the skin. A sunscreen for acne-prone skin, oily skin, or dry skin, the doctors know what fits in the best.
