Link to the Top 40 Hwahae Toners here!

Hwahae is a Korean mobile phone app that provides product ingredient information, product reviews, and rates them.

In Hwahae, you can filter the rankings to your skin type and age range. The skin type options are full (??), dry, normal, combination, oily, and the age options are [All] [20s] [30s] [40s and above]. I didn’t do 41 and below because the ratings change often.

Download it here:

Sunscreens are commonly rated and labeled with a sun protection factor (SPF) that measures the fraction of sunburn-producing UV rays that reach the skin. For example, “SPF 15” means that 1/15th of the burning radiation reaches the skin through the recommended thickness of sunscreen.

Other rating systems indicate the degree of protection from non-burning UVA radiation. Asian brands, Particularly Japanese ones, tend to use The Protection Grade of UVA (PA) system to measure the UVA protection that a sunscreen provides. The PA system is based on the PPD reaction and is now widely adopted on the labels of sunscreens. According to the Japan Cosmetic Industry Association, PA+ corresponds to a UVA protection factor between two and four, PA++ between four and eight, and PA+++ more than eight. This system was revised in 2013 to include PA++++ which corresponds to a PPD rating of sixteen or above.

Certain sunscreens in water under ultraviolet light can increase the production of hydrogen peroxide, which damages phytoplankton. Oxybenzone damages coral. Nanoparticles of titanium dioxide, an ingredient in some sunscreens, can accumulate in coastal waters and be ingested by marine animals. – Wikipedia Sunscreen Article

Inorganic UV-filters = Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
Organic UV-filters = Avobenzone, octinoxate, tinosorb S, etc.
Combination = use of both inorganic and organic UV-filters.

Finding a sunscreen is difficult. Is it too much to ask for one that doesn’t make me greasy, matte, ashy, peel like a snake, has a high SPF and PA level,is cheap and contains water from the fountain of youth?
