Blue Lizard is dedicated to promoting healthy skin and reducing incidence of skin cancer.
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 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!
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.
