purito sunscreen scandal?

I just recently bought the purito comfy water sun block spf 50+++ and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. and ive read about the purito centella sunblock not having the same spf as stated on the bottle. Basically they are saying it’s like spf 18, so I’m curious has anyone found any info on the comfy water sunblock? Is it really spf 50? If not I need to find another one bc 18 is way too low for my liking. I have to have AT LEAST 30 spf. lmk if you’ve seen any articles about it!! And if it is really only spf 18 then I’m ISO something similar in texture, finish, and feel that I’d spf 30 or more.

Hmm where did you buy this? Purito has suspended sales of this sunscreen and provided refunds. https://m.puritoen.com/article/notice/1/1453/ Yes it is true that even this mineral base sunscreen did no reach the SPF 50 rating, it was the same with Klairs Sunscreen both the chemical and physical types did no reach SPF 50. I gotten my refund from Hermo that sells Klairs products https://puritoen.com/article/notice/1/1368/

I’m not looking for a refund, I actually love the sunscreen, was just curious where everyone found the info about what spf it actually is. so I know if I can wear it on a day I won’t be outside a ton!

hey, so there were a few independent tests done. two were done in European labs and they found the spf to be 19. there was then a study done in a Korean lab and they found the spf to be 28.4. I've added in couple of screen shots for you to see. going by the law of averages, in my opinion I would say the spf would probably be around 22. xxx

Agree with Bazz! This sunscreen had been discontinued due to spf issue, it was retested in a better facility and turned out ot be spf 28 instead of 50.

thank you so much!! I tried googling it but when I did I could only find info on the spf of the centella and green sunscreens from purito and a few from dear klairs. the others were closer to around spf 18, so I’m glad this one is closer to 28 bc I feel like 18 is just useless lmao.
