        Mamaearth ultra light indian sunscreen with carrot seed & turmeric with SPF 50 PA+++ is one of the sunscreens I've misunderstood at the beginning of it's usage. but later I came to know how to use it properly. 

SPF means Sun Protection Factor which measures only UVB protection, while the PA rating measures only UVA rating. both SPF & PA rating both are important to need maximum for the UV rays.

 PA+ = Some UVA protection
PA++ = Moderate UVA protection
PA+++ = High UVA protection

Remember that, higher the pluses, higher the protection. Longer time it takes to make our skin tan. How cool is that😍

Mamaearth ultra light indian sunscreen is a mineral based sunscreen as it contains Titanium dioxide and alumina. 

Parsol MCX is a strong UVB absorber for broadband protection. Avobenzone is a UVA filter which protects from skin ageing. 

Octocrylene is an organic ultraviolet (UV) filter which absorbs mainly UVB radiation and short UVA wavelengths.

Bemotrizinol is commonly used in sunscreen since it can absorb both UVA and UVB rays.

Carrot Seed Oil : An excellent moisturizer as well as a sun protectant, it penetrates deep in the skin and doesn’t leave behind any residue.

Orange Oil : Non-greasy, anti-inflammatory properties of Orange Oil increase the skin’s ability to absorb the sunscreen quickly and protect from UVA & UVB rays.

Turmeric : With antibacterial properties, Turmeric heals, suits all skin types, and makes the sunscreen ideal for Indian summers.

Cananga Oil : By forming an external protective layer, Cananga Oil keeps the skin safe even in the harshest weather.

My Experience:    

    At first, I used this sunscreen soon after moisturizer. which made sunscreen pilling and I used to hate it. But I came to know that we should wait for few minutes before applying sunscreen on moisturizer. 
So, its always better to wait after moisturizer. Take a pea-sized amount and apply gently. DONT RUB on the skin surface. NOT NECESSARY.

I just love the sunsscreen because my skin not getting tanned because of the PA+++ rating and no white cast even on my NC45 skin tone. Believe. 
But honestly saying, I fail to apply sunscreen after every 4 hours😕 

Consistency is just like the moisturizer, you can skip the moisturizer if you have oily-combination skin. 
Non-greasy, light-weight, doesn't dry out skin.
Free from silicones, parabens, pthalates and artificial colour.
