As any surfer will tell you, it's imperative to use a reliable long-wearing truly water resistant sunscreen that is capable of standing up to long and intense sessions. Where many sunscreens have failed, Shade SPF 30 has excelled, and now the secret of many professional surfers is out.
Shade Sunscreen was developed by Strider Wasilewski, a California native and professional surfer, celebrated as a big-wave rider at Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu. Now an ASP commentator for the World Tour and the owner of Shade Sunscreen, Strider has cracked the sunscreen code.
According to Shade Sunscreen,
Shade Sunscreen has been developed with a purpose! Develop a Mineral Based sunscreen that offers superior resistance to the elements and the lightness of a daily use sunscreen. While being mindful of our sensitive environment, our reefs, and our bodies. Shade Sunscreen has no boundaries. We have formulated it for performance and priced it for everyone!
We love the outdoors, but know the skin damaging effects of the sun. We want everyone to enjoy the outdoors, be protected, protect their environment, their reefs, and their bodies while doing so. Shade Sunscreen has been tested all over the world in almost every climate, from snow in the mountains of NW Canada to the sweltering heat of southern Oaxaca, Mexico.
He has suggested that,
Shade goes on super smooth and stays on longer than any sunscreen I've used in recent memory. Water actually beads off your skin which seems to help keep it from washing off. It also doesn't give you a caked-on look when you really lather it on. Even better is that a little seems to go a long way. It's my new go-to sunscreen.
My observations: This is one of the few sunscreens that I have tested that really and truly is water resistant. In fact, not only did it offer superior sun protection protection, but water beaded up and rolled off of my skin unlike anything else that I have experienced. When I did want to remove it I found that it was so resilient that it took warm soap and water to finally break it down.
Not only is this sunscreen free of Parabens, Fragrance, Alcohol and Mineral Oil, but it is also loaded with healthy antioxidant rich skincare ingredients like Green Tea Extract, Olive Leaf Extract and Vitamin E. Therefore Shade Sunscreen simultaneously conditions and moisturizes the skin while protecting it against free-radicals, and of course it offers superior sun protection and longevity.
