SHELTON, Conn., May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Energizer Personal Care, the makers of Banana Boat® sunscreen, today announced the launch of the Best Summer Ever by celebrating with a Great Big Family Reunion. This summer, Banana Boat® is encouraging families big and small to get together and have fun outside in the sun, while helping to protect everyone from harmful UV rays.
The warmer weather that summer brings makes it a great time for the whole family to get together and have fun outside. Banana Boat® wants to ensure families have all the tools needed to create and experience fun and memorable gatherings, while most importantly protecting their skin. Banana Boat® Great Big Family Reunion offers summer fun in the sun adventures for the whole family, and visitors can enter a Sweepstakes that offers the chance for one lucky family to win a reunion for up to 50 of their family members and friends. Participants can also spin the Wheel of Fun for exciting activities to entertain their families all summer long!
"As a dermatologist and mom of three very active children, I know how important it is to get outside and spend time with your family in the summer. Each summer my extended family gets together and that's why I love the Great Big Family Reunion initiative – but I always tell my family and my patients that it's important to be safe when you're in the sun," said Dr. Julie Karen1, NYC-based board certified dermatologist. "I recommend patients to use a broad spectrum UVA / UVB sunscreen with SPF 30 or above, and Banana Boat® has some great new product offerings with multi-skin benefits. One of their most exciting new products is their SunComfort™ Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen, which offers broad spectrum protection, allows sand to brush off easily and moisturizes to relieve dryness. It's convenient and fun for the whole family to use!"
Banana Boat® is also equipping families to have the Best Summer Ever through its offering of three new sunscreen innovations:
- Banana Boat® SunComfort™ Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen does more than protect against the sun's harmful rays and is great for everyday use. This new formula allows sand to easily brush off and moisturizes to relieve dryness caused by sun, chlorine and salt water. SunComfortTM has undergone and passed testing in seven conditions2 – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat up to 100 degrees – to provide safe and effective sun protection;
- Banana Boat® Dry Oil Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen now includes argan oil providing a unique lightweight dry oil formula that does more than protect against the sun's harmful rays, leaving skin feeling silky-smooth and moisturized;
- Banana Boat® Sport Performance® Lotion Sunscreen now includes Powerstay Technology™ specifically designed for the sport enthusiast and active individual who doesn't want to be slowed down when out in the sun. This new formula stays on in seven conditions2 – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat up to 100 degrees – to provide safe and effective sun protection.
