Summer is nearly here, but as the temperatures increase, it’s important to remember to protect your skin while soaking up the warm weather sunshine. Wearing the right sunscreen is important for blocking harmful UVA/UVB rays, and this year Banana Boat is making it easier with the launch of two new products: Banana Boat Dry Balance Sunscreen Lotion and Clear UltraMist and Banana Boat Kids Sport Sunscreen Lotion and Lotion Spray with PowerStay Technology. Both products provide safe and effective UVA/UVB protection, are water-resistant for up to 80 minutes and include the brand’s unique seven conditions claim.
“Banana Boat® is always developing new, innovative products to fit the many needs of consumers and to keep up with the evolving trends in the sun care industry. As a dermatologist, I always stress the importance of a proper sun care regimen to my patients, which means reapplying every two hours or after swimming, sweating or toweling off. However, something I often hear is that people dislike how their skin feels after reapplying sunscreen throughout the day,” says Dr. Julie Karen, a NYC-based board certified dermatologist and Banana Boat consultant. “The smooth matte finish of the new Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ makes it more appealing to reapply throughout the day, which is why I’ll be recommending it as a top solution.”
The sunscreen is specially formulated to absorb excess moisture in the skin and dry with a soft matte, so as a result it goes on without feeling greasy and heavy.
Karen says she is also thrilled about the company expanding its kids’ portfolio to include the new Kids Sunscreen with PowerStay Technology®.
“As a mom of three active young kids, I know how busy children are today with their hectic sports schedules. Having a sport-specific sunscreen will give families the confidence to know that their children have heavy duty protection in a formulation that is gentle enough for kids’ sensitive skin,” she says.
The brand’s seven conditions claim means that the two new products have been tested in seven real life conditions: sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat up to 100 degrees to provide safe and effective sun protection. Dry Balance™ Sunscreen is available in SPF 30 and 50+, and Kids Sport Sunscreen with PowerStay Technology® is available in SPF 50+.
