sets Blue Lizard apart?
in Sun Protection
You'll never catch
us with a tan
Blue Lizard is dedicated to promoting healthy skin
and reducing incidence of skin cancer. We are strictly a sunscreen company and
always will be. You will never find products here that encourage natural tans.
If you want to be bronzed, do it the healthy way - by slathering on Blue Lizard
and self-tanner before you go outside.
isn't always better
It is a common misconception that higher SPF
means more sun protection. That's simply not true. Each Blue Lizard formula offers
more than 30 times your skin's natural protection against UVB rays. We list our
SPF at 30+ to preserve the integrity of our Australian roots. We still test according
to Australian Standards, which are much more stringent than FDA regulations. If
you are applying correctly, SPF 30 is really all you need, and 30 is all that
Australian Standards will allow sunscreens to claim!
like a secret recipe
Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen is made with
a unique micronized Zinc Oxide that allows the protectant to form an even barrier
against UV rays. Other sunscreens are less technologically advanced - they don't
blend on to the skin as easily and don't stay on as long.
Don't be fooled by all sunscreens that tout Zinc Oxide as
a main ingredient. Dermatologists recommend at least 5 percent Zinc Oxide (Blue
Lizard has 6 or 10, depending on formula). Some sunscreens will place the glaring
words "ZINC OXIDE" on their packaging but only contain 1 or 2 percent!
not gonna work if it doesn't stay on
The FDA requires water-resistance
testing in 80 minutes of still water. Australian Standards are 240 minutes in
whirlpool water. Which criterion do you think Blue Lizard fills? That's right.
It's three times more water resistant than most other sunscreens, so think twice
the next time you see a "waterproof" claim on a bottle of sunscreen.
