German term or phrase:LSF Lichtschutzfactor same as SPF?
I'm translating an article about sunblockers for the US and Asian audience.
I seem to remember that the US SPF system of numbering is based on a different standard than the European system, so that LSF 30 isn't exactly SPF 30.
Not to mention the Asian standard which I know nothing about yet.
Do I remember wrongly? I can't seem to find anything to support my suspicion.
