Hurraw uses non-nano uncoated Zinc Oxide in their Sun Balm. Zinc Oxide is the only all natural, broad spectrum (blocks both UVA and UVB) sunscreen available today. Zinc Oxide is a mineral. It protects your lips by sitting on top of them and thus, provides a physical barrier against UVA and UVB rays. It actually deflects the rays away from the skin to prevent any harm. For adequate protection it must be applied often.
The SPF 15 factor in Sun Balm is verified yearly in a 3rd party lab (on human beings).

Just a few swipes of Sun balm are needed for protection, many swipes will indeed give your lips a extra white tint, which is fine too. Be sure to apply it often for protection and to keep that physical zinc barrier present.
SPF 15 means that your skin is protected 15x's 'longer' than without the SPF 15 product. If you have very fair skin, perhaps the sun makes you 'pink' in just 3 minutes. Therefore, an SPF 15 product would grant you 45 minutes in the sun... HOWEVER, there are many limiting factors: Time of day? Cloud cover? Eclipse? Are you on the water (or snow) where sun rays are more concentrated? At a high altitude where you are literally closer to the sun? Be sun smart. Listen to your body. Listen to the sun. Wear big brimmed hats.
