Get Ready for Summer with Banana Boat

Edgewell Personal Care (EPC), the makers of Banana Boat® brand sunscreen, announced today the availability of two new product portfolios in mass grocery and drug retailers nationwide: Banana Boat®  Dry Balance™ Sunscreen Lotion and Clear UltraMist® and Banana Boat® Kids Sport Sunscreen Lotion and Lotion Spray with PowerStay Technology®. The new Banana Boat® formulations include the brand’s unique 7 conditions claim and provide a multi-benefit experience for each member of the family.

Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ Sunscreen and Kids Sport Sunscreen with PowerStay Technology® portfolios are tested to stay on in seven real life conditions2 – 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+.

Solution to Sticky Sunscreen
Reapplication of sunscreen throughout the day, every two hours, is an essential aspect of a proper sun care regimen, but many beach and park-goers alike are deterred by the sticky, weighted feeling of their sunscreens. As a solution, Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ Sunscreen was created, formulated to absorb excess moisture and dry with a soft matte finish. The lightweight, non-greasy formula provides safe and effective UVA/UVB protection and has water-resistant formula for up to 80 minutes that keeps you protected from the sun while feeling dry and fresh, so you can enjoy your day – no matter where you are!

Sport Protection for Little Ones
Often, kids have unlimited energy for playtime so families know they need a sunscreen that can keep up with them! With the addition of Banana Boat® Kids Sport Sunscreen Lotion and Lotion Spray with PowerStay Technology® to the Banana Boat® brand kids’ portfolio, families now have a solution. Banana Boat® Kids Sport Sunscreen with PowerStay Technology® has a mild fragrance-free formula that won’t irritate kids’ delicate skin, while still providing heavy duty protection that stays on strong during activities. The tear-free and sting-free formula provides safe and effective broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and is water-resistant (up to 80 minutes).

My Thoughts

I love always loved Banana Boat because it doesn't have a heavy chemical smell so like many other sunblocks and it doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky.  The DryBalance line is the best one I've tried so far.  Rubbing this onto your skin is a pleasure. It rubs in evenly, and feels more like lotion than sunblock. Your skin feels soft after using it and it doesn't leave behind any greasy residue.  For my kids, the Kids Sport is a great option. Even in the spring, I use sunblock on them when there outside at the park or playing soccer. This sun block is tear free and has amazing staying power. Like the DryBalance, it feels like lotion. For quicker coverage when you're in a rush, dry the spray bottles.

The varieties I tried were SPF 50 and SPF 30, and these two formulas are perfect for the summer when we're at the beach. With the SPF 30, I can still get a little color without having to worry about getting burned. For my kids and their more sensitive skin, the 50 SPF is the safer choice. They are also water resistant for up to 80 minutes.  It's a great choice whether you're spending the day at the beach or taking a walk along the nature trail. 

If you'd like to learn more about the DryBalance and Kids Sport line or any of the different options at Banana Boat, be sure to visit their website. Look for these products in store nationwide throughout the spring and summer seasons.
