Does black skin really need SPF as I’ve heard melanin provides natural sun protection? Yes, it does. On average, melanin gives black skin an approximate natural SPF of 13. However, this is insufficient to protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun – UVB rays can and will still burn the skin, causing damage at a cellular level that could cause skin cancer. UVA rays accelerate premature ageing of the skin, contributing to an increase in pigmentation concerns and dark marks, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
