It was created following a 2012 survey by The Skin Cancer Foundation which revealed that men over age 50 are more than twice as likely as women to develop skin cancer. When you think about it men tend to be less concerned with skin protection, I know I often have to remind my husband to apply sunscreen. So it doesn’t surprise me that only 51 percent of men in the U.S. admitted to using sunscreen in the past 12 months. Banana Boat is looking to combat these shocking statistic with their Triple Defense Sunscreen for Men and ActiveProtect® Technology, which provides tough broad spectrum protection in a light-weight formula that combats odor and hydrates the skin.
Available in lotion and Clear UltraMist®, the UltraMist® formula allows for quick and hassle free application. Something my husband appreciates, because I know he wouldn’t take the time throughout his work day to apply sunscreen if it was a messy ordeal. Armed with Banana Boat® Triple Defense Sunscreen for Men Clear UlltraMist® formula he can apply sunscreen, fast and without mess, in his truck between jobs. I love that he actually keeps a bottle with him now. And I think the added benefit of odor protection was a game changer for him. It’s hard to work in the hot sun 6 days a week, multiple hours a day.
This sunscreen even appealed to my teen sons, which I was thankful for. Anything that gets them thinking about sun protection and being proactive is a plus in the moms mind. Even my youngest son became excited about sun care when he seen the Banana Boat® Triple Defense Sunscreen for Men. As I grabbed the bottle of Banana Boat kids, he proclaimed “I’m not a kid. I am a man!” And reached over for Banana Boat for men. Truth be told, I think he just likes how it smells, as do I. It has a more manly fresh scent that is actually quite nice!
