Banana Boat develops new multibenefit sunscreen lotions
SHELTON, Conn. — Energizer Personal Care, the makers of Banana Boat brand sunscreen, has announced the availability of two new products: Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate and Banana Boat Sport Performance CoolZone sunscreen lotions.
Both Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate and Banana Boat Sport Performance CoolZone sunscreen lotions have undergone testing in seven conditions — sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat up to 100 degrees — to provide safe and effective sun protection.
Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate sunscreen lotion is designed to go beyond sun protection to keep skin 100% hydrated for moisture that lasts all day. The new formula is fragrance-free. Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, this broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen protects against sunburn, damaging UV rays and the visible effects of skin aging in a sheer-feel lotion that is proven to be effective. The 2-in-1 combination of sunscreen and moisturizer protects and hydrates skin in one step, and the lightweight formula with aloe vera and antioxidant vitamins C and E leaves the skin feeling soft and looking healthy.
Banana Boat Sport Performance CoolZone sunscreen lotion is designed to instantly cool and refresh skin on contact. Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, this lotion provides broad-spectrum SPF 30 and 50, water-resistant (80 minutes) protection. Also available in a continuous spray, this formula has a fresh scent and helps users keep cool in the heat.
