Hi Lisel, thank you for the question.
This is an interesting and important question: not all sunscreens are the same so the general ‘strength’ or effectiveness varies between products. You are 100% correct if we took that they are all equally effective then a SPF 15 differs to a SPF 50 only on the length of time that one’s skin is protected.
