Water sports and outdoor athletes are more vulnerable to skin damage caused by harsh UV rays. Indeed, there are numerous sunscreens and sun protection lotions in the market, but they are not made to withstand harsh environmental conditions such as snow and long exposures to warm and cold waters.

If you use regular sunscreen, it is very likely that you skin will not absorb it properly if you are soaked in water, sweating profusely or in freezing below zero environs. Surfers, swimmers, snowboarders, skiers and other outdoor extreme sports enthusiasts often look for the perfect sunscreen to protect them for long periods. It's great that Swox waterproof sunscreen and UV protection is available in the market for several years.

Swox is an Australian-German hybrid company launched in 2010 by a group of surfers and snowboarders. Their regular trips to Australia and Swiss Alps taught them about regular sunscreens and that they are not designed for extreme sports and harsh conditions.

This is why Swox sun protection products are unique and focused on outdoor athletes. Below are the primary benefits they provide:

  • Water-Resistant UVA and UVB Filters - Swox sunscreens has a blend of physical blockers such as zinc and titanium which have water-resistant UVA and UVB filters that ensure longer-lasting skin protection particularly in water.
  • Excellent UV Protection - The presence of physical blockers titanium and zinc in these sunscreens ensure protection from harsh sun damage. They also do not contain oxybenzone or octinoxate.
  • Hypoallergenic - Aside from containing eco-friendly ingredients, Swox sunscreens do not contain parabens, fragrances, eye irritants and greasy substances. They are also approved by dermatologists.
  • Eco-Friendly Packaging - Bio-base plastics are used to make tubes for Swox sunscreens. These are derived from Brazilian sugarcane ethanol which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Endorsed by World-Class Athletes - An excellent product is highly likely to be recommended by the very people who uses it. In the case of Swox, it's not just a sun protection product or a brand but a community of athletes who share similar lifestyles and passion for their chosen sport.
