One of the earliest products was UV Baby - it was the first truly natural, high SPF sunscreen in the world that was safe to put on a baby's skin under the age of 6 months. In fact it is still the only one today that can make that claim.
Before UV Natural came along, there was a "glass ceiling" on the SPF level that could be reached by a truly natural sunscreen. There were a number of brands out there with SPF 15-20 but no-one could break that barrier and get to the important levels of SPF 30 or higher.
UV Natural not only broke that barrier but smashed the glass ceiling completely. Anything above an SPF 32-35 (approx) does not offer any more protection, the level of protection plateaus at this level. It is all about being truthful to your market - the brands offering SPF levels in the 40's, 50' s, and higher are only fooling you. They get to charge more for a product that cannot deliver what they're promising.
