SPF vs UPF
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. SPF is a standard used to measure effectiveness of Sunscreens, whereas UPF measures effectiveness of Sun Protective Fabrics. SPF provides only UVB protection, UPF provides both UVB and UVA protection. Lastly, an SPF of 15 prolongs your protection 15 times the time it takes to burn, where as a UPF of 50 blocks out 49/50 (98%) of UV rays when worn.
