SPF numbers indicate how long it will take for your skin to burn. How quickly your skin burns also depends on your skin type, and the intensity of the sun rays. A SPF 30, for example, means that if you usually burn in 10 minutes (fair skin), the sunscreen will provide protection for up to 30x longer before burning, and hence also before reapplication is required.
An SPF 30 protects you against about 97% of UVB rays, whereas an SPF 50, provides about a 98% protection.
Most mineral sunscreen offer protection against blue light, as it reflects light away from the skin. Blue light is a major contributor to visible signs of skin ageing.
