Badger SPF30 Sunblock product review

1966700055 f775bde228 m Badger SPF30 Sunblock product reviewFinally, after many months of waiting, Badger SPF30 Sunblock will be available during mid December here in Singapore. 

Surprising, I am not as keen on the product anymore probably because I now have Keys Solar Rx SPF30+.  But I will likely still purchase it for my kid since it looks like the 2007 formulation is now again rated the safest and most effective over at EWG Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database.

A lot of us are probably under the impression that the higher the Sun Protection Factor or SPF of a sunblock, the better the protection.  In theory, that is suppose to be so but in reality, studies have shown that products with a SPF over 50 do not provide any significantly better protection than one over 30. 

Protecting against UVB
According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, most sunblocks with an SPF of 15 or higher do an excellent job of protecting against UVB.

While running through EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database for updates, I noticed that they’ve put up an ingredient guide for children’s products which highlights 20 common ingredients of concern.  Some of these information are actually useful for us to know as many of our skin care products do contain the said ingredients too.
