Why Do Triathletes Love SolRX Sport Sunscreen?

SolRX is proud to say that it’s a brand preferred by sports and surf enthusiasts around the world, especially amongst triathletes. Why do triathletes love our product so much? It’s a result of our broad-spectrum, water resistant formulation that doesn't block pores – which assists in increasing endurance.

SolRX Resists Sweat and Water

One of the reasons SolRX is preferred by triathletes is that our WATERBLOCK sunscreens are so good at resisting water, including sweat. In fact, AMA Labs developed a tough test to gauge SolRX’s effectiveness despite 8 hours immersed in water – and this test later became an industry standard. The result: SolRX sunscreens work at a nearly full SPF rating over that period of time underwater. They won’t sweat off into your eyes, irritating them, or wash away. Thus, SolRX’s patented WaterBlock system is effective in keeping the sun from damaging skin despite water, ice, snow, and sweat.

SolRX Protects from Sunburn

UVA rays cause aging and cell damage, while UVB rays lead to burning and even blistering. But in addition to causing long-term damage to your skin, sunburn can be painful and distracting. Even a slight amount of sunburn means that your body has to compensate and use up energy to fight the damage. This, in turn, negatively impacts endurance.

In addition, inflamed skin can lead to faster dehydration. SolRX’s sunscreens, simply because they’re so good at what they’re designed to do: help triathletes feel their best and perform their best, whether they’re training for their first event or doing an Ironman.

SolRX Lets Your Skin Breathe

SolRX sunscreens are non-comedogenic, oil-free, and paraben-free. This means our sport sunscreens don’t feel sticky when they’re applied and protect the skin without clogging pores. More importantly, they don’t clog your pores. Clogged pores don’t allow your skin to “breathe” properly - skin is less effective at removing toxins, sweat and oil, and at absorbing moisture it needs. This leads to the very real possibility that you might overheat, especially when participating in high-energy physical activities. SolRX formulas help break down the excess oils on your skin without stripping your skin cells of the necessary moisture and nutrients they need to keep your body in peak condition.

The fact is, SolRX is preferred by triathletes and coaches because its protective yet breathable qualities lead to more endurance, better performance, and safer conditions for your body and mind. If you’re a competitive athlete or just a for-fun weekend warrior, give yourself an edge with SolRX sport sunscreen!
