                      Frequently Asked Questions


                      Q: I’d like to use a sunscreen on my face to help with day to day sun exposure but I’m concerned about my skin looking oily.  Can you suggest a product?

                      A:  Our Solbar Zinc sunscreen with transparent Zinc Oxide provides SPF 38 in a cream formula. Its lightweight formula is easily absorbed by the skin and provides full spectrum sun protection.


                      Q: I spend a lot of time outdoors during the summer and am concerned about premature aging from the sun exposure.  Which sunscreen would you suggest I use?

                      A: Solbar AVO SPF 35 contains Avobenzone which naturally provides extra protection from UVA rays, which contribute to premature aging.  Solbar AVO also guards against UVB exposure, ensuring full-spectrum protection in a rich, non-greasy formula.


                      Q: I take medications that make me extremely sensitive to sun exposure.  Can you suggest a product that would give me maximum sun protection?

                      A:  Absolutely. Our highest SPF product is Solbar Fifty SPF 50.  Formulated with Oxybenzone, this product is ideal for photosensitive or photo-allergic users or anyone who will experience extended periods of sun exposure.


                      Q: I’m a very active person and need a sunscreen that will hold up well during physical activities like gardening and swimming.  What do you recommend?

                      A:  Solbar Zinc is a great choice for active users.  Solbar Zinc is water and sweat resistant and contains Zinc Oxide for maximum sun protection.  For best results we suggest applying liberally to dry skin at least 15 minutes before exposure and reapplying every two hours, especially after swimming or prolonged physical activity.


                      Q: My skin is extremely fair and prone to burning.  What sunscreen product would you recommend?

                      A: Solbar Shield SPF 40 combines the powerful protection of Zinc Oxide with Titanium Dioxide for maximum UV protection.  In addition, Solbar Shield also contains aloe and vitamin E to nourish and moisturize as it protects.


                      Q: Is Solbar Zinc safe for use with infants and children?

                      A: Solbar Zinc, and all our sunscreens, are safe for use with children and infants over six months old.  The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children under six months old be kept out of direct sun entirely.  For older children, avoiding sun exposure between 10am and 3pm can help limit exposure to potentially damaging rays. 


                      Q: I need full-spectrum sun protection.  Which of your sunscreens provide both UVA and UVB coverage?

                      A: All of our sunscreens provide broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.  In addition, every sunscreen we carry is PABA-free and unscented.

Solbar Shield really works.”“I spend a lot of time outdoors, and this product does a great job of preventing my skin from being burned.”“This sunscreen provides excellent protection from the sun.

I will only use this sunscreen to prevent burns.”“My husband is an ironworker so is always outside and Solbar Shield SPF 40 keeps him from getting sunburned. It does not make him feel greasy and it doesn't run down into his eyes as some do.”I've been using this product regularly on myself and my young children. It doesn't run into or burn eyes. As a contact lens wearer that is important to me. And it lasts a long time, especially in the water.”“Goes on smoothly, disappears into the skin, and not overly greasy. This is the first one that has protected my skin and not given me a rash.”
