The Banana Boat Company

The Banana Boat brand is actually part of a bigger company that owns other personal care products like Playtex, which is known for its great baby products.

Banana boat has been around since the 70s, and it has been a product that people have grown to trust. It’s a leader in the sun care space and cares about the environment as well as their customers’ health.

Water and Sweat Resistant

This lightweight formula is non-greasy and absorbs quickly. You’ll be able to spray the sunscreen on and head outside for 80 minutes of sun protection.

Most sunscreens provide hours of protection only if the person is not exposed to water or other moisture. Sunscreen should be reapplied after a person has been swimming or sweating during outdoor activities.

With this formula, the sunscreen won’t have to be reapplied immediately. Enjoy the sun, water, and your favorite activities for hours before having to worry about your sunscreen.

SPF 100 Broad Spectrum

SPF is the amount of protection you’ll get from the sun. Specifically, it’s called Sun Protection Factor. If you can stay out in the sun for 10 minutes without getting a burn, the SPF is how much longer you can stay in the sun.

For example, an SPF of 100 like in this Banana Boat Ultramist Sport Broad Spectrum Spray will give you 10 x 100 minutes of protection.

That’s in the best case where you never sweat or jump in the water. It’s actually recommended that you reapply your sunscreen every few hours.

An SPF 100 broad spectrum lotion will also protect from the two types of sun rays that make it to Earth.

Some lotions only protect from UVB rays, but a broad spectrum lotion means that it’ll protect you from 98% of the UVA as well as UVB rays. They’re both known to cause sunburns, wrinkles, and cancer over time.

It’s important that you’re blocking as much of the sun as possible to avoid these problems. While one is an immediate problem (sunburn), the others can develop over time and can be very serious.

Easy-Lock Cap

Throw this lotion into your beach bag or backpack. It’ll never leak on your clothing or towels. There’s nothing worse than pulling out your towel only to find that the lotion cap fell off and there’s lotion all over the place.

You also don’t want your children to have access to lotion where they might spray themselves in the face. The cap will lock to provide child protection as well as leak protection.

Sport Performance

When you’re an on-the-go athlete, you want to protect your skin from serious sun damage. At the same time, you don’t want to spend all your energy worried about the sun when you’re training or exercising.

Whether you’re a biker, runner, volleyball player, or swimmer, this sport performance formula will protect for hours against moisture.

Powerstay Technology

The sport performance is enhanced by Banana Boat’s Powerstay Technology. It’ll lock the ingredients in place that protect your skin against the damaging rays of the sun.

When ingredients are locked into place, they’re going to provide more sun protection for a longer period of time.
