We do not use the ‘star rating’ system as this is now owned by Boots the Chemist, who licence other companies to use it.
The ‘star-rating’ system is not the only way to tell if a product offers protection against UVA rays. The European Cosmetics Association COLIPA have designed a symbol to indicate whether products offer UVA protection in line with the Recommendations of the European Commission.
The recommendations of the European Commission states that, the claimed UVA protection factor should be 1/3 of the claimed SPF number, Green People Sun Lotions exceed this.
This symbol, which consists of the letters UVA inside a circle, is used by Green People to confirm that our products offer UVA protection in line with these recommendations. The symbol can be found on the front of our sun lotion tubes.
All of our sun creams offer Broad Spectrum Protection (both UVA & UVB).
