    favorite sunscreen

    Hola. i am always on the hunt for thick, powerful sunscreens. My favorites are usually surf related, but unfortunately my favs only seem to last for a year (Get It On brand was awesome, but i can't find it around here). Anyway, i ride more than i surf, so what's the general consenus on sunscreeens for prolonged saddle time??? Thank you.
    Ashe.

    Coppertone Sport.

    But, God forbid if you ever get that into your eyes. Almost as painful as chili peppers.

    Banana boat sport, and it's not that fun if you get it in your eyes, but you really have to be sweating up a storm for it to get in your eyes; it's supposed to be sweat proof. Orange squeeze tube. It's all I use.
    I don't have a solution but I admire the problem!

    I must be odd. All sunscreens seem to work fine on me. I look for the cheapest - usually generic.

    NO-AD. Works WAY better than the Banana Boat stuff I used, which stayed white and gloppy and picked up insects for hours afterwards.

    Try to find something with Mexoryl in it. It's the only sunscreen that protects against both UVB and UVA rays.

    A class action suit has been filed against the five leading makers of sunscreens in the United States for deceptively marketing their non-Mexoryl products. "The lawsuit claims the manufacturers promote sunbathing by claiming to protect users from harmful ultraviolet rays. It says while the products might protect against ultraviolet B (UVB) rays -- the shorter-length ultraviolet rays that cause sunburn and increases the risk of skin cancer -- they do little to stop ultraviolet A (UVA) rays -- longer-length rays reaching deeper into the skin, which can also increase the risk."
