Best Sunscreen for Swimmers: SolRX WATERBLOCK® Formula
In some ways, you could say SolRX is among the best sunscreen for swimmers. Beyond just swimming and water sports, other types of athletes benefit in myriad ways from the WATERBLOCK® technology that makes SolRX sport sunscreens so effective.
In addition to being a broad-spectrum sport sunscreen for swimmers, SolRX products also offer an incredible level of water resistance for prolonged exposure. The SolRX WATERBLOCK® has been rigorously tested and designed for water immersion, so it’s an ideal product for swimming and people who spend a lot of time in the water. And it's not only safe and healthy for humans. SolRX sunscreen is formulated in a way that protects our environment as well.
Why SolRX Sunscreen for Swimmers?
Whether you're competing in an Ironman triathlon or just spending a day at the pool, SolRX is versatile sunscreen for all walks of life. With a wide variety of options like spray sunscreen and high-SPF protection, SolRX sport sunscreen caters to both elite-level swimmers and just about anyone water bound. Below we discuss a few specific reasons why SolRX is one of the best sunscreens for swimmers.
8-Hour Water Immersion Protection
SolRX sunscreen products don’t merely meet FDA standards for sun safety, they surpass them. In fact, the test we helped develop to assess our sunscreen’s performance, with AMA Labs in the 1990's, eventually became the new industry standard.
As one of our flagship sunscreens for swimmers, SolRX’s SPF 30 broad-spectrum sunscreen was rated at SPF 35.83 even after 8 hours in the water. This means that athletes can be confident that no matter how much time they spend in the water their skin will be protected.
A Convenient Spray Sunscreen for Swimmers
As you may know through experience, sunscreen that doesn’t stay on properly can affect your performance. If you’re entering a high-stakes activity, you need the best. SolRX has developed spray sunscreen that stays on skin, even after prolonged immersion in the water. This provides a convenient and highly-effective sunscreen for swimmers and triathletes, especially for the transition area as athletes prepare to head out on the bike for several hours at a time.
Because SolRX products cling so well to your skin, they won’t sweat off into eyes or wash away in the water. That means they do not cause the kind of irritation that can make a race or other endeavor more difficult. As a result, the spray sunscreen that SolRX offers makes for a popular option among endurance athletes.
Broad Spectrum Protection
At SolRX, we are recognized as the best sports sunscreen that swimmers count on for maximum protection from UVA/UVB rays. Unlike some sunscreens that only protect against UVA rays, our WaterBlock formula is also designed to be broad spectrum, ensuring coverage from both types of UV rays.
We offer a full line of broad spectrum sunscreen with UVA/UVB defense, including our Spray Dry, Dry Zinc, and Original WATERBLOCK® Formula. So when you're out at the lake, pool, or ocean, be sure to protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays with the broad spectrum defense that comes from SolRX sunscreens.
Environmentally-friendly Sport Sunscreen
Chemicals in sunscreen can damage the health of oceans by leaching corals of their nutrients in a process called “bleaching.” These chemicals can also disrupt the development of fish and other wildlife, reducing their ability to deal with climate change.
Recent studies have shown that this problem in our oceans is getting worse. Because SolRX products stay on the skin and can only be removed by soap and water, it’s a safer choice for people who believe that conservation of our water-based habitats is crucial. SolRX doesn’t add to environmental pollution.
If you’re a swimmer, it’s important to have an effective broad-based sunscreen that is as water-resistant as possible. You spent a lot of time in the sun. And when you’re out there, you’re busy thinking about other things - times, transitions, gear. The last thing you need is worry about whether your skin is being protected. That’s where SolRX comes in. We’re the choice among sport sunscreens for swimmers and athletes because we make it effortless for you to stay protected.
