For many, summer is around the corner, and it’s time to break out the sunscreen to protect skin from UV while wearing swimsuits and sports gear. Banana Boat Sport Performance CoolZone Lotion SPF 50 “instantly cools and refreshes skin” with its aloe-enriched formula, and the broad-spectrum UVA/UVB formula claims to provide “resilient, water-resistant (80 min) protection for any sport activity” in a “non-greasy and fast-absorbing” lotion. This column will review the ingredient listing for functionality and claims substantiation.

This product is a water-in-oil emulsion with the active UVA filter avobenzone (3.0%), and UVB filters homosalate (8.0%) and octylcrylene (4%). The primary vehicles and/or carriers are water and denatured alcohol, the latter of which contributes to the “cooling” effect due to evaporation.
