    To use, simply unscrew the head, fill with your favourite sunscreen, pop the lid back on and you’re good to go! It really is that simple!

    Solar Buddies work with most sunscreens. We advise not to use oily or watery type sunscreens (e.g Sprays) as they can leak. For us conventional sunscreens from ‘squeezy’ bottles work best. Thicker creams can work but may need a little help getting to a roller ball. Try the 'ketchup shake' to help it out. don't forget to clean the sponge regularly with warm soapy water and if you wont be using for a little while clean thoroughly and leave the cap off to dry.

    Important information

    The lifespan of the heads depends on how it is used and cared for. We recommend the Solar Buddies are cleaned after the vessel becomes empty (see here for more important information as to why you need to wash your Solar Buddie). The heads need to be washed on a more regular basis to stop the head becoming clogged with sunscreen. Do not leave the Solar Buddie in direct sunlight or temperatures that exceed 30C. If in extreme heat keep your Solar Buddies in a shaded place. Do not use sunscreens high in alcohol as this can affect the adhesive. If all directions are followed the Solar Buddies can last in excess of 6-8 weeks. We have always managed to get 3-4 months out of each sponge caring for the solar buddie as directed. Sponges can be purchased separately.
