Banana Boat Ultra

Banana Boat is a staple brand in mainstream beach culture, and has been trusted by generations of recreators to keep them protected from the sun. While they rely on synthetic chemicals to keep you safe, this product contains neither oxybenzone, nor octinoxate the two most problematic chemicals in most widely available sunscreens.

Though it uses artificial scents and some questionable chemicals, overall the Banana Boat Sport line is a worthwhile product available at a premium. If you are looking for a product for long days in the sun where you know you’ll have to reapply.
