What sets Blue Lizard apart? The Leader in Sun Protection
You'll never catch Blue Lizard with a tan. Blue Lizard is dedicated to promoting healthy skin and reducing incidence of skin cancer. Blue Lizard is 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.
"More" 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. Blue Lizard lists their SPF at 30+ to preserve the integrity of their Australian roots. Blue Lizard still tests 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!
It's 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!
It's 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.
Shake well prior to use. Apply liberally to dry skin before sun exposure. Children under 6 months of age: ask a doctor. Reapply to dry skin as needed or after towel drying, swimming or sweating.
How to apply sunscreen:
Because most sunscreens provide a water-resistant base and therefore will not adhere to wet surfaces, it is extremely important to apply to dry skin before going outdoors.
An average adult should use the equivalent of 1 fluid ounce per full-body application. While Blue Lizard will remain effective longer, it's recommended that all sunscreen is reapplied every two hours. Also remember to reapply after vigorous activity or toweling off.
For topical use only. When using this product keep out of eyes. Rinse with water to remove. Stop use and ask a doctor if rash or irritation develops and lasts. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center. Do not use if allergic to any ingredient.
