croxfiber use SunPlay super block SPF 130 PA+++
(SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. Sunscreens are rated by the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) system which is mainly a measure of UVB protection & PA stands for Protection Grade of UVA

with the thinning of the ozone layer & the sun is getting hotter nowadays, sportfishos / anglers should take extra precaution against sun-related problems such as skin illness, premature ageing & skin cancer

how sun screen works?
the ingredients in sunscreen protect the skin by absorbing, blocking or scattering UV radiation. the best sunscreen is the one that blocks enough UV rays to protect your skin. for the best results, apply sunscreen 30 minutes before exposing to the sun

the numeric value simply indicates how much longer that sunscreen can enable you to stay in the sun before you start experiencing sunburn. for example, the SPF 15 sunscreen allows a person to stay out in the sun 15 times longer. so, if you usually take 20 minutes to burn, the sunscreen will delay the onset of a sunburn to 300 minutes

there are three grades, namely PA+, PA++ and PA+++. PA+++ offers the most protection. PA+ is adequate for most activities. if you're staying out in the sun for long hours, go for PA++ or higher

better to play safe than sorry
