Why is your SPF rating so low?
Love your Paula's Choice Sunscreen, but wish it sported the higher SPF? Well, no worries! All SPF-rated products purchased from Paula's Choice Australia are the exact same formulation offered by Paula's Choice USA. In fact, each of our Paula's Choice Distributors around the world get their product supply from our U.S. office.
While each product is extensively tested and meets U.S. regulations, because Australia's regulations differ, we are unable to claim a SPF higher than 15 on our packaging at this time. As sun protection is a cornerstone of our brand, be assured that you are getting the very same protection that our U.S. customers and others around the world are getting.
We're currently working to meet the requirements for Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration. Until that time, we will continue selling our SPF products with the current SPF 15 rating label (both sunscreens and moisturisers with sunscreen). Once we can move to displaying a higher rating, we will make sure the website shows those details for our valued customers.
