SPF50+ warn­ing

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

SUN­SCREEN with a pro­tec­tion fac­tor of SPF50+ will be hit­ting the shelves this month. But Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land warned the sun­screen pro­vided only marginally bet­ter pro­tec­tion to SPF30+. “Queens­lan­ders should slip on pro­tec­tive cloth­ing, slop on min­i­mum SPF30+ broad-spec­trum, water re­sis­tant sun­screen, slap on a broad­brimmed hat, seek shade and slide on wrap-around sun­nies to re­duce their skin can­cer risk,” spokes­woman Katie Clift said.
