Tropic Sport - Sunscreen SPF 30 (6.5 oz)
Annie's Advice: This was created for surfers if that tells you anything about its efficacy. When you are ready for a full day in the sun, especially doing anything physical or staying in the water for a long time, try this sunscreen. This very traditional size is the perfect amount for a day at the beach for a group.
If you love staying active outdoors, this is the sunscreen for you. Not only does it pass the U.S. FDA 80-minute water resistance test, but also the Australia 4-hour water resisitance test. Originally created specifically for water sport lovers such as surfers, you can count on this sunscreen not to drip into your eyes or wash off with sweat. (Although always reapply as you would with any sunscreen if you are spending uninterrupted time in the water and sunshine!) Feel good about yourself when you choose this clean sunscreen because you won't be part of the enormous issue of our sick and dying coral reefs caused by chemical sunscreens. Tropic Sport sunscreens are not only reef friendly, but also family friendly, as EWG gives this SPF 30 a rating of 2, an extremely low and safe score. While your skin is being protected from UVA and UVB rays that can cause skin damage and skin cancer, it will also be moisturized and happy due to the vitamins and tropical essential oils in your new favorite sunscreen.
