The science

When the right amount is applied correctly, sunscreens can offer protection against both UVA and UVB rays. They work by reducing the energy of incoming light by altering its wavelength so that it doesn’t cause any damage to the skin. 

Both chemical and physical sunscreens work in this way. Physical sunscreens also, to a small degree, physically reflect some of the UV light. Sunscreens are often a combination of physical and chemical to get the best protective coverage across both UVA and UVB light.
