The Mineral Spray Sunscreens that are better for your health

The Mineral Spray Sunscreens that are better for your health

For more than 20 years, dermatologists have trusted us to provide mineral-based sun protection that is better for your skin and better for your health.

In 2019 we upped the ante by making some of our most popular sunscreens better for the Earth.

Then in 2020 we put all of the power of our superior mineral sunscreens in the convenience of a stick.

Now let us introduce you to the new Blue Lizard Mineral Spray Sunscreens—the awesomest spray sunscreen you’ll ever use.


Better for skin

At Blue Lizard, we’re passionate about not only making sunscreens that offer the best sun protection but that also are healthy for your skin. That’s why we use consciously selected ingredients that are better for you and better for the environment.

Blue Lizard Sunscreen Sprays offer all of the convenience of a spray sunscreen without the potentially harmful chemicals. Our sprays use the broad spectrum mineral Zinc Oxide, which protects you from a wide span of UVA and UVB rays.

Not only do we know what a great sunscreen needs, we also know what it doesn’t need. Blue Lizard spray sunscreens contain no parabens. Scientific studies suggest these chemicals can irritate skin. Our are also fragrance-free. This makes them ideal sunscreen for sensitive skin.

If you love fragrances and you are not sensitive to these ingredients, our Active spray sunscreen will surround you with palm trees and sand with its tropical scent.

The active ingredients in the sunscreen are important, but so are the inactive ingredients. Blue Lizard mineral spray sunscreens contain nourishing botanical ingredients to soften and moisturize skin while also protecting it.

Blue Lizard Sunscreens are some of the most innovative mineral sunscreens on the market, but don’t take our word for it. We’ve been dermatologist recommended for over 20 years. We’re also the #1 pediatrician recommended mineral-based sunscreen brand.


Goodbye Streaks!

What goes into your sunscreen also determines what kind of experience you’ll have when applying it. Ingredients can make a sunscreen too runny, too sticky or too apparent.

Through innovation, we’ve created a mineral spray sunscreen with no white cast. Blue Lizard spray sunscreens dry clear on every skin tone. Other mineral spray sunscreens may leave a greasy, thick film on your skin. Not Blue Lizard Spray Sunscreens. Say goodbye to unsightly, embarrassing streaks and hello to clear mineral protection!

Pro tip: For a quick rub in of our mineral spray sunscreens, use gentle, long strokes on the body.


No Harmful Airborne Titanium Dioxide

As the mineral sunscreen experts, we know Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide are some of the best active ingredients to help protect you from UV rays. While Titanium Dioxide helps provide broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays in our sunscreen lotions, it is not in our sprays.

So, what’s the deal with Titanium Dioxide? The state of California recently issued a Proposition 65 warning against airborne Titanium Dioxide. According to the warning, Titanium Dioxide particles when airborne are so small there is a high risk that they can be inhaled and cause lung issues. 

It’s important to note that this warning is only for airborne Titanium Dioxide and that Titanium Dioxide when used as a lotion is perfectly safe. While Titanium Dioxide is a great broad spectrum active ingredient for sunscreen lotions, we’ve side-lined it in our spray sunscreens to better protect you and your family.


Earth Friendly Propellant

Not only are our sunscreens better for your skin and better for your health, they also have the environment in mind. We not only focused on what’s inside the container, but also how it goes from the container and onto our bodies. Our mineral spray sunscreens use an Earth-friendly propellant with an ultra-low global warming potential.


We Love the Reef

From the air to the ocean. Blue Lizard spray sunscreens are part of our We Love the Reef sunscreens made with no to help protect delicate coral reefs.

Studies speculate these two sunscreen chemicals found on many store shelves may be partly to blame for the significant death of once vibrant coral reefs. Tons of sunscreen chemicals enter the ocean every year through swimmers and beachgoers. We’ve made superior mineral sunscreen that does not contain these chemicals to help slow this process so that one day our oceans may thrive again.


How to Use Blue Lizard Spray Sunscreens

Blue Lizard spray sunscreens offer the convenience of a spray sunscreen so that you can spend more time having fun in the sun and less time worrying about a sunburn. But it’s important to know how to use a mineral spray sunscreen. For the best Blue Lizard mineral spray sunscreen experience, follow these steps:


The Do’s:

Shake well before using. Apply to dry skin 15 minutes before going out into the sun. Hold the container four to six inches from the skin to apply. Rub in using long strokes especially on the arms, legs, torso and back to get the best experience. 

Reapply to dry skin at least every two hours or after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating and immediately after towel drying.


The Don’ts:

When using a spray sunscreen do not spray onto face. Instead, spray onto hands and then rub onto face to apply. Also, you don’t want to apply spray sunscreen in windy conditions as this could affect how much is applied to your skin and could increase risk of inhalation. Instead, use a mineral spray sunscreen in a well-ventilated area and avoid inhalation.
