How do I get maximum protection out of my Protekt Sunscreen products?

Protekt Sunscreen is the perfect water/sweat proof barrier to protect you from all the harsh conditions you will face outdoors. From UV rays, to wind burn, to dry climates, our moisturizing formula will keep you covered with a physical barrier of organic zinc oxide. To maximize its effectiveness and your outdoor time we recommend rubbing our products onto your skin in a circular motion as you would a normal lotion.  If you wish to make the product more visible on your skin, you can then finish with a second visible layer.  *Note: the layer of Protekt does not need to be thick – just rubbed on and spread evenly to the areas you want to protect. Zinc is a physical barrier, so even a light coat will go a long way!  We recommend following FDA guidelines and reapplying every 80 minutes for maximum protection.

Can I apply Protekt under my eyes and to my forehead?

Yes – Protekt will NOT migrate or run into your eyes. Protekt also has NO chemical blockers or preservatives which can irritate eyes. Protekt can be applied underneath the eyes and on top of your eyelids – just be careful not to rub Protekt directly into the eyes.

How often should I re-apply Protekt?

Apply Protekt as recommended on our labels for maximum time outside!

Are Protekt Products safe for the environment and reefs?

Yes – Protekt products are all formulated using natural, organic plant and mineral ingredients.  Our Zinc is 100% non-nano and stays on the surface of your skin as a physical barrier.  No matter where your adventures take you, you can be sure you are using the safest suncare products on the market!

Does your tinted product stain clothes?

As with any tinted product, you may find that some of your Protekt tinted sunscreen has transferred onto your clothes, rashguard, or swimsuit.  But FEAR NOT!  Unlike most brands, we specifically formulated our naturally tinted formula to come out in the wash without any special stain treatments.

Does Protekt come in different skin tones? 

YES.  We offer our standard zinc formula along with a naturally tinted Protekt SunStick for those who want something a bit more skin-tone.

I have sensitive skin can I use Protekt? 

Protekt Suncare uses Zinc Oxide as our only active ingredient.  The rest of the formula is made from organic ingredients and free from all the harmful stuff. Zinc oxide is non-irritating, non-allergenic and non-comedogenic.  We are safe for all skin types and children!

WE RECOMMEND TO ALWAYS DO A TEST PATCH ON YOUR SKIN PRIOR TO YOUR FIRST APPLICATION – IF YOU HAVE ANY REACTION DISCONTINUE USE IMMEDIATELY
