Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

A few of my Canadian readers have asked whether I could include affordable Canadian-made sunscreens to my Sunday Sun Day Series for them, and the brand that comes to mind is SunZone. Their products are effective, pleasant to use, and they are affordable.

About SunZone,

SunZone sunscreens and after sun products are designed to suit your healthy and active lifestyle. SunZone sunscreens are broad spectrum and provide maximum protection against harmful UVA/UVB rays, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and healthy.

SunZone sunscreen lotions are developed by using innovative, proprietary formulations with patented Oleosomes technology, which significantly reduces the amount of active chemicals used to achieve SPF levels. SunZone sunscreen lotions work both as a sunscreen and a moisturizing lotion. Unlike other brands which uses 30% active chemicals, SunZone sunscreen uses only 7% active chemicals and 93% moisturizing lotion. SunZone sunscreens are Dermatologist Tested, hypoallergenic and non-Comedogenic (suitable for all skin types and won't block pores).

SunZone's chemical sunscreens are so effective and convenient to use that my husband took all of them on his surf trip to Nicaragua and Costa Rica! Hopefully there will be a little left for me to use for the remainder of the summer!

SunZone SprayWet SPF50+ Clear Continuous Spray boasts a unique, innovative formula that is specifically designed to be applied to wet skin without leaving behind a white or greasy residue. It applies sunscreen evenly offers great protection, but must be reapplied frequently (at least every 60-80 minutes) to remain effective– as is the case with all sunscreens.

According to SunZone,

As with all SunZone products, the SprayWet sprays contain natural ingredients such as Green Tea extract, moisturizing Aloe and Vitamin E for healthier skin and provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

With an ultra light sheer mist and a non-greasy finish, this spray applies easily to hard to reach areas and is ideal for use at the beach, lake or around the pool. This spray also allows you to spray at any angle to ensure maximum protection.

• Hold container 4 to 6 inches from the skin to apply.
• Spray liberally and spread evenly by hand 15 minutes before sun exposure.
• Do not spray directly into face. Spray on hands then apply to face
• Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating, immediately after towel drying, and at least every 2 hours.
• Do not apply in windy conditions and use in a well-ventilated area.
• Water resistant
• Paraben & PABA free

NOTE: "Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen with broad spectrum SPF of 15 or higher and take other sun protection measures. These include limiting your time out in the sun (especially from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m) and wearing long- sleeve shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses. For children under 6 months, please ask your doctor."
SunZone Sport SPF 30 Clear Continuous Spray is a very effective sunscreen that is specifically formulated to provide maximum protection against sunburn and UVA/UVB rays for active people who play sports. The lightweight mist coats the skin effortlessly, is non-greasy and is water resistant. Paraben and PABA free.

According to SunZone,

Athletes are 400x more at risk than the average person for developing skin cancer. This innovative formula delivers excellent protection containing various natural ingredients such as Vitamin E, Green Tea extract, and moisturizing Aloe.

This light sheer mist spray is easy to apply for those hard to reach areas and allows you to spray at any angle to ensure maximum protection and produces a non-greasy finish.

SunZone Family SPF60 Lotion is a lightweight and non-greasy sunscreen lotion that absorbs into the quickly and effectively. This antioxidant-rich formula was developed in order to provide the entire family, including children, with high SPF protection against UVA/UVB rays and against sunburn. As with all sunscreens, this one also needs to be reapplied every 60-80 minutes to remain effective, and one must always use common sense because over-exposure to the sun increases the chances of getting skin cancer, and will prematurely age the skin.

According to SunZone,

Containing natural ingredients such as Green Tea extract, moisturizing Aloe and Vitamin E, this lightweight and non-greasy formula absorbs into the skin quickly leaving it feeling smooth and soft. It also contains patented Oleosomes Technology that comes from organic plant seeds to provide even greater skin protection and performance, further moisturizing benefits, and less active chemicals to produce healthier looking skin.

SunZone Aloe Vera Gel is an instantly absorbing Aloe Vera-based gel that hydrated the skin, cools ad refreshes the skin, and offers relieve from sun and wind burn. While it can be used all months of the year, it is especially refreshing during the warm months of the year. I also like to store it in the refrigerator to use to cool down and refresh the skin when the temperature is especially high!

According to SunZone,

Sun zone Aloe Vera Gel is designed to instantly relieve sunburn or windburn pain. This natural source formula prevents skin peeling by moisturizing and conditioning it upon application. Enhanced with cooling properties of Aloe Vera, SunZone Aloe Vera Gel reduces inflammation, itching, blistering and chapping of the skin. It is an excellent product to be used year round as a moisturizer.

Apply liberally to all areas of the skin and gently massage until Gel is completely rubbed in.

Caution: FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Discontinue use if signs of rash or irritation develop. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children.
Overall Assessment: If you live in Canada, and are seeking an affordable and effective line of sunscreens, then it is definitely worth taking a look at SunZone's offerings.
