Our skincare products are designed specifically for the demands of performance sports and endurance activities. They are proving to be among the best in the world. Over the last three years, Planet Sun exhaustively served as suncare provider to many of the toughest sporting events on Earth- from triathlon, paddling, surf, ultra-distance marathons, swim and bike. We laid it all on the line, fielding our sunscreens to thousands of athletes exposed to some of the most demanding conditions imaginable. The experience and knowledge gained from these efforts is reflected directly in our current formulations- from choice of ingredients, to nutrition, to packaging.
Beyond training and competition, our sunscreens are trusted by professionals who work and live in the sun and the elements.
Key Characteristics. All the Good Stuff that makes our sunscreens different from countless others.
Finest Active sunscreen ingredients: We are indeed fans of Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Aside from being natural, they are a logical choice for performance applications. Both are insoluble in water, thus very resistant to degrading over prolonged periods of physical activity. We use micronized ZINC Oxide which becomes virtually invisible when applied.
Superior Broad Spectrum Protection: Our combination of organic and mineral based sunscreens follows US FDA, and Skin Cancer Foundation's recommendations for achieving Broad-Spectrum UV protection.
Infused with "On Board Nutrition" Our sunscreens are infused with carefully selected botanicals, essential oils and antioxidants to nourish, hydrate and replenish the skin while exposed to the elements. Extended periods in the sun, wind, rain, chlorine and salt water can wreak havoc on your skin and take you out of the race. We go way beyond the standards of most who possibly add some Aloe and Vitamin E to their products. It costs us more to develop a product that not only protects, but adequately nourishes- in the long run, it is well worth it. Learn more about the ingredients we feature in our sunscreens.
Very Water /Very Sweat Resistant: Of Course! Our sunscreens twice exceed the FDA standards for water resistance, and are rated at the highest level of water resistance achievable.
Good on you: Our Face and Body Sunscreens are Benzephone (Oxybenzone ) Free, Paraben Free and PABA Free and free of hormone disrupting chemicals.
All of our skin care products are Cosmetic Grade- they are non-comedogenic, non greasy, and non-irritating.
Stay put and won't run into your eyes. We offer a separate face sunscreen for a reason: We have yet to find, use or develop a body sunscreen that will not run, creep, or migrate even under moderate physical activity. Lotions and liquids tend to run. Our face formulation sunscreen is a wax based product (bees wax) that stays put when applied, even under the most intense physical activity.
A little goes a long way.. Our Base Lotion ingredients, high molecular weight, and outstanding water resistant properties require smaller application amounts compared to other sunscreens. Ounce for ounce, our sunscreens are one of the best values in Premium Performance skin care today. You will also find the pricing of our sunscreens in line with one of our Guiding Principles: "Outstanding products at reasonable prices."
Confidence: Our sunscreens are produced under the highest of cosmetic industry standards, tested by world class athletes and validated in the toughest conditions. Take a look at the incredible people in our company, the exhaustive schedule of events we support, and the things we do. Staying healthy, endorphins and painstaking detail drives us. Lastly, our skincare products are made in the USA.
