    | Ask a question

    This sunscreen has been tested to 50SPF and water resistant for 2 hours. However, batch production can change and like all sunscreen use we urge you to err on the side of caution, hence our 30+SPF and 80 minute water resistant description. SPF and water resistance changes with waters, heat, sweat and is different for individuals. please read our blog on applying and reapplying for the best proctection. Remember, sunscreen is not substitue for covering up and seeking shade in our harsh sun conditions.

    Our water safe sunscreen is a water resistant formula that we have been running for several years now alongside the original.

    It is thicker than our everyday formula so is not as easy to apply, but sinks in beautifully and doesn't leave you greasy.

    With a high SPF factor (30+SPF), zinc, and natural ingredients of almond oil, and beeswax;  Babu™ water resistant sunscreen soothes and protects your baby’s delicate skin against UVA and UVB rays.

    High in zinc, this doesn't smell "as" delicious as our Flagship sunscreen with the same natural papaya fragrance, but that is a small price to pay for swim time!

    It's paraben free and is reef safe. 

    Tested to AS/NZ standards shown below for its SPF and water resistant time.

    We recommend 80 mins water resistant, but suggest regular applications.
