15: You may need 30 or higher if you have sun sensitive skin or sun damaged skin.

Approx SPF 30: Generally speaking, if someone uses sunscreen appropriately and re-applies as necessary then an spf-30 is just fine. I hope that is what you were asking. My apologies if that wasn't quite the question.
