Product summary

Based on the ingredient list, we assess that "Banana Boat - Sport Performance Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 - 3 Ounces" can provide reliable sun protection. We love that it can protect from both UVA and UVB rays (not all sunscreens with SPF ratings give UVA protection. UVA rays do not cause sunburn, but still damage our skin and lead to early aging).

It also works as a moisturizer, so you do not have to use an additional hydrating product. Like all broad-spectrum sunscreens, this product has an anti-aging benefit.

Sunscreen filters

This is a so-called "chemical" sunscreen. It means that it uses organic UV filters. They typically offer good sun protection and rarely leave a white cast, but they can be irritating for some people with sensitive skin. Here are the exact UV filters in this sunscreen: oxybenzone 6.00% (declared), avobenzone 1.50% (declared), octisalate 5.00% (declared), homosalate 15.00% (declared) and octocrylene 1.25% (declared).
