Banana Boat is a well-known skincare brand that sells safe, skin-promoting solutions for all age groups. While there are many sunscreens in the market, very few cater to sports people, dedicated professional swimmers, or athletes. The major problem is that the sports people sweat a lot and any cream or balm seeps into their clothing, eyes, and mouth. Though most the sunscreens are non-stainable, many are irritants to the eye. Along with the sweat, the sunscreen melts and seeps into the eye - causing irritation. So, keeping in mind this issue, Banana Boat has produced a suitable sunscreen. Its Sport Performance Sunscreen is easy to the eye and remains on the skin even when the body is subjected to heavy perspiration and water. Find out more about the brilliance of this product – especially for those who stay in the Sun for quite some time during the day.
The easy-to-use lotion is packed in an opaque, colorful, plastic container. Inside the container (available in 4 oz and 8 oz volumes), the lotion is kept airtight and protected from direct rays of the Sun. The body of the container is tapered in the middle to allow the athlete to pick it up and use it easily – even under the sweaty conditions. There is a convenient pump which allows small pumps of the solution to ooze out for use. The 8 oz container with dimensions (3.9 x 5.8 x 19) cm weighs only 230 gram.
The soft and creamy lather of Banana Boat Sport Performance Sunscreen Lotion has a calming and soothing effect on the skin. The thick cream however, blends on the skin texture soon after massaging it for some time. Within a few minutes, the skin is protected with sunscreen – but, it is so light and dry that it cannot be felt by the sports person. Although the sunscreen does not wash away, it must be reapplied in case towel is used for drying the body. The cooling effect however, is long lasting.

The athletes also don’t intend to have a perfumed sunscreen as it may distract them while practicing their sports. This lotion is a perfect skincare product in this regard.
