Can you believe that kids are spending more than seven hours per day plugged into media and only seven minutes per day outside playing? To help spread the word about the importance of spending time outdoors, Banana Boat® has partnered with Sara Snow, a natural living expert. With her tips for summer sun protection (i.e., sunscreen application, staying hydrated), you can have fun in the sun with their families safely.
Banana Boat is asking parents to take the 101 Days of Summer Play pledge (www.facebook.com/bananaboatbrand) to commit to enjoying fun in the sun with their families every day, all season long. Each pledge will trigger a donation of one bottle of new Banana Boat® Natural Reflect Sunscreen to The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a non-profit founded by Paul Newman that offers a residential summer camp for children coping with cancer and other serious illnesses. To help parents come up with ways to enjoy the outdoors, Banana Boat and Sara Snow created the 101 Days of Summer Play Activity Guide featuring family-friendly tips and ideas for outdoor fun each day of the season so families enjoy the sunshine – launching Memorial Day weekend and running through Labor Day.
With so many fun activities keeping families outside this summer, it is important to stay safe in the sun. This year, the iconic sun care brand is introducing Banana Boat® Sunscreen Natural Reflect Lotion and Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone™ Continuous Spray Sunscreen that will become staples in your summer bags:
- Banana Boat® Sunscreen Natural Reflect Lotion– This unique formula offers sun protection using naturally sourced sunscreen actives that reflect UVA and UVB rays. The new Banana Boat® Natural Reflect underwent extensive testing in seven conditions – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and even 100° heat – to ensure sun protection. We've tried this out in all the various conditions (from the zoo to the pool), and it worked great on the kids and myself!
- Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone™ Continuous Spray Sunscreen – Available in SPF 30 and 50+, Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone™ Continuous Spray Sunscreen provides active UVA and UVB protection that instantly cools skin on contact, for a clean, refreshing feeling. To rejuvenate after a day in the sun, Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone™ After Sun Aloe Gel provides cooling burn relief to refresh skin. This also does what it says it will do. A nice, cool sunscreen!
I love keeping our skin safe and helping a great cause!
