SHELTON, Conn., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Energizer Personal Care, the makers of Banana Boat® brand sunscreen, announced the availability of two new products, Banana Boat® Protect & Hydrate sunscreen lotion provides all day moisture with aloe and antioxidant Vitamins C & E, and Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone™ sunscreen lotion that instantly cools and refreshes the skin on contact. Both Banana Boat® Protect & Hydrate and Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone™ sunscreen lotions have undergone testing in seven conditions – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat up to 100 degrees - to provide safe and effective sun protection.
Innovation and Inspiration
Banana Boat® Protect & Hydrate sunscreen lotion goes beyond sun protection to keep skin 100 percent hydrated for moisture that lasts all day. The new formula is fragrance-free, promoting use as an everyday lotion. Recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation, this broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen protects against sunburn, damaging UV rays and the visible effects of skin aging in a sheer-feel lotion that is proven to be effective. The 2-in-1 combination of sunscreen and moisturizer protects and hydrates skin in one easy step, and the lightweight formula with soothing Aloe Vera and Antioxidant Vitamins C & E leaves the skin feeling soft and looking healthy.
Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone™ sunscreen lotion instantly cools and refreshes skin on contact leaving you feeling invigorated with a crisp, clean scent. Recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation, this lotion provides broad spectrum SPF 30 and 50, water-resistant (80 minutes) protection. Also available in a continuous spray, this unique formula has a fresh scent and helps users keep cool in the heat. Banana Boat's advanced technology helps prevent sunburn and skin damage while also delivering quick absorption and a non-greasy feel.
"Today's shopper is looking for their sun care products to provide additional benefits beyond UVA/UVB protection, or what we commonly refer to as "Protection Plus," said Carla Luca, Senior Brand Manager of Banana Boat® brand sunscreens. "New Protect & Hydrate and CoolZone™ sunscreen lotions deliver the added benefits shoppers want in their sun care products to accommodate both protection and skin care needs."
