6 BEST AUSTRALIAN-OWNED SUNSCREEN BRANDS.
There is no seasonal time to apply sunscreens. Sunscreen is meant to be applied all year round.
Australia has one of the harshest weather and the thinnest ozone layer among other countries which means more UV exposure and has the second-highest skin cancer rate in the world.
Do you know there is a strict quota of the SPF amount that is approved in Australia?
The answer is SPF 30 to 50+, nothing less.
Who else can we trust more to know better than the SPF creators of Australians brands?
Here are some of the roundup of our favorite brands:
