Bit of an usual request but does anyone know what it says on the front of this bottle?

I'm interested in finding out what the UVA and UVB protection is. Would be a shame to throw it away. Hubby bought it in the Middle East last year.

Many thanks!

That's not Arabic. Hebrew maybe?

SPF refers to the UVB protection and at 30 I'd expect it to also have UVA protection but don't read Hebrew so can't be sure.

I don't read Hebrew either but if the bottle was opened last year you're best getting rid of it. Sunscreens lose their efficacy once opened. The guidelines are to throw away after a year AFAIK.

It's old bin it. It doesn't last forever.

that's Hebrew. Did hubby not notice he was in Israel?

I've used last year's suncream and always found it to work fine.

I used seven year old sunscreen on the beach today and I am red where I missed a bit so it definitely worked.

Ah, hubby travels a lot so he can't remember really! Hopefully someone here can tell me what it says. So you think after 12months , then bin it?
