ALthopugh this doe shave "spf," it is only 10 which is barwly enough. Furthermore, it is extemely important for the spf to protect against BOTH UVA AND UVB RAYS. I higlhly doubt thsi does indeed protect agains both since thye would most likely be a higher spf. You...and all of us need to be careful with the damaging rays from the sun. I am in medicine, and I tens to preach about the sun a little too much, but it is something that we can prptect ourselves from while stiull enjoying the beautiful outdoors. I have done a ton of research and I highly receommend Jack Black's SPF 25 lip balm in the blue tube which sephorqa sells in mnay scents! ALthough Jack Black does not come in this pretty petal pink shade, it has much more pretection which you could definatley benefit from if you would liek to trry it. There is a phenomenal website by Paula Begoun, who critiques almost every skin care/cosmetic. SHe will tell you why the item is good and if it is spf, she will tell you if it is enough spf, etc. If Paula does not have your product listed, you can email her to request an item for her to critique which is extremely helpful & wonderful. (She has written over 20 top selling books world-wide on skin, make-up, etc). This way you will see if the spf is the real deal on a plethora of products. Many companies slap on the word "spf" but do not offer enouygh protection. I am not referring to DIOR! Dior is indeed honest as they state it is only spf 10 meaning it is minimal protection. I look aat this wonderful balm as my pretty and nourishsing balm vs. my go-to sun protection for my lips. I like atleast spf 25 on my lips with UVA & UVB protection.You can still use this pretty lip balm DIOR, but it would be better to wear an spf 25 or higher on top with UVA & UVB protection. The only formula I know with excellent protectipn Jack Black's lip balm which sephora coneventiently sells ($7) ....and they offer approx. 5 different scents/formulas. Hope this helps you. Be well : )

Its a nice product but I would recommend something much more intensive for your case. I do believe it is indeed SPF 10 but I think you should go for some of the less glamorous(but effective) options.

About a year and a half ago the FDA came out with new guidelines for what constitutes a sunscreen, and what can be labeled as such. Many lip products that previously boasted the 10 SPF or 15 SPF on their products could no longer advertise it as such. Many companies make their products the exact same way, so they do still have some sun protection, but they are no longer allowed to sell it with the 'sunscreen' label. This is why it can be harder to find an SPF lip product currently! Hopefully some brands have already come out with new products adhering to the new SPF guidelines!
I hope this helps!
I don't see anything in the ingredients list that would be spf so probably it does not. In any case the spf is too low to be really protective, especially if you have had a history of skin cancer. Better to use something with far more protection than this.
I wrote to Christian Dior's customer service and they informed me this product does not contain SPF. Maybe it did at one point but it no longer does. Additionally, this product contains Retinyl Palmitate so I don't know if it's a good idea to wear it in the sun at all. I might be returning mine since I was under the impression it did have an SPF of 10.
