One of the booths that I took the time to visit at the 2019 PGA Show in Orlando, Florida was SKIN Sunscreen. During my time visiting there I chatted with one of the representatives who explained to me how SKIN Sunscreen came to be and the development of their latest sunscreen.
SKIN Sunscreen was developed with the purpose of keeping golfers safe from the harmful rays of the sun. With skin cancer deaths on the rise, it’s become even more important that we take care of ourselves and take any and all precautions against it (the sun). Whether you’re a golfer or a tennis player or any outdoors-minded you’re likely prone to spend countless hours outdoors.
Having already developed one of the leading sunscreens in the health and wellness industry (golf) SKIN Sunscreen has released it’s most recent addition to their family of products. Already having lip balm, SPF 30+ and SPF 50+ Sunscreen comes a new and improved formula with one major difference. It’s Reef Safe.
The new Active Reef Friendly SPF50 Continuous Spray sunscreen has been specially formulated to remove any chemicals that may be harmful to coral reefs. The organisms that live in these precious ecosystems are far more important than we realize. SKIN Sunscreen knows this as well. And they care.
The SKIN Sunscreen Active formula is non-greasy (as I can attest), sprays on so it doesn’t need to be rubbed into the skin, dries clear and is water-resistant for over an hour.

Until The Next Tee!!
Goodyear, AZ, March 18, 2019… SKIN Sunscreen™, providers of a premium sunscreen product specifically designed for the golf athlete and their families, has introduced a new Active Reef Friendly SPF50 Continuous Spray sunscreen.
“When creating our Active SPF50 spray, we felt the need to bring the integrity of our formula to a higher standard, therefore eliminating specific chemicals, which are frowned upon by our loyal consumers,” said Jessica Folino, General Manager/Partner, SKIN Sunscreen.
The SKIN Sunscreen Active SPF50 Continuous Spray is a lightweight, non-greasy formula that sprays on from any angle, helping you protect your entire body from harmful UVA/UVB rays. This highly effective, Broad Spectrum formula features a no-run application that doesn’t require rubbing in. It provides water resistance up to 80 minutes and applies and dries clear while allowing the skin to breathe. It is safe for children, the reef and is approved for use in Hawaii.
On May 1, 2018, Hawaii became the first state to pass a bill banning the sale of sunscreen containing chemicals believed to harm coral reefs. The legislation prohibits the distribution of sunscreens containing the chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate that scientists have found contributes to coral bleaching when washed off in the ocean.
Active ingredients in the new spray include Homosalate, Octocrylene, Octisalate, and Avobenzone. Other ingredients include skin soothing, aloe vera, coconut oil, and Vitamin E.
“We’re pleased to offer a spray sunscreen that is not only environmentally safe, but also provides sun protection while playing golf, swimming, and participating in all other outdoor activities,” said Jessica Folino, General Manager/Partner, SKIN Sunscreen. “It’s ideal for people who want to apply sunscreen but would rather not use their hands to apply during their activity. It provides one less excuse for not re-applying!”
In addition to the new SPF50 spray, SKIN Sunscreen also offers a premium preventative reef-friendly SPF30+ lotion formulation that is oxybenzone-free, non-greasy, sweat resistant and water resistant for up to 80 minutes. Uniting the company’s resources in a quest to spare others the pain and loss associated with the insidious health threat of skin cancer and UV damage, SKIN Sunscreen is proudly promoted as the optimal wellness preventative in a healthy daily hygiene routine.
