That’s why all of our formulas are rigorously tested for SPF protection, performance, and feel. Our sun care products are specifically designed to be lightweight, moisturizing, easy to apply, and non-greasy.

Our trusted sun care line is here to help protect your skin against the sun’s different rays: UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are responsible for sunburns, while UVA rays can lead to aging and the development of skin cancers. More prolonged exposure to UVA rays also increases damage to deeper skin layers and speeds up the aging process. This is why applying a Broad Spectrum sunscreen from Panama Jack® should be your first line of defense before you head out for any outdoor activities. Experts also strongly recommend the use of a multi-layered strategy that, in addition to sun care, includes UV-protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses—because there is no such thing as too much sun protection.
It’s easy to remember to use sunscreen for special outdoor occasions, like a day at the beach or a weekend spent at the golf course. Most people know that Broad Spectrum sunscreens protect us against sunburns, but there is another significant benefit that many aren’t as aware of. Scientific evidence now shows that using sunscreen every day actually helps slow down the skin’s aging process, and studies have found that people who use Broad Spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis experience less skin aging than those people who only use sunscreen occasionally.
Although many people know that sunscreen protects against painful sunburns, they may underestimate the amount they need to apply. Whether you prefer a sunscreen spray or lotion, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends applying one ounce of sunscreen 30 minutes prior to going outdoors. If you plan on playing sports or spending time in the water, you’ll need to reapply at least every two hours to ensure your protection isn’t washed away. Don’t forget to throw an SPF lip balm in your bag to protect the sensitive skin on your lips.

After a long day out in the sun, it’s essential to follow up with some after-sun skin care. Even if you don’t get sunburned, the sun dehydrates your skin and can cause severe dryness. A hydrating gel made with aloe vera and menthol can help restore moisture to your skin while soothing any inflammation or irritation.
Many people use a Broad Spectrum SPF sunscreen to prevent signs of aging and sunburns, but these aren’t the most important reasons for wearing Panama Jack® sun care products. The most crucial reason to consistently use an SPF sunscreen is to reduce your chances of developing skin cancer. Nearly two-thirds of melanomas are associated with exposure to UV rays, so making sunscreen a regular part of your skin care routine is absolutely critical. In fact, proper sunscreen application can reduce your risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma by 40% and your melanoma risk by 50%.
To best defend your skin against cancer and the other harmful effects of the sun’s rays, you should be using a minimum of SPF 15 on a daily basis. Experts recommend a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 if you have an extended outdoor activity planned. For even more peace of mind, you can’t go wrong with SPF 50 or higher. When it comes to sunscreen formulas, you have two options: chemical or physical (mineral) sunscreens. Primarily composed of zinc oxide, physical sunscreens work by forming a physical barrier over your skin that reflects the sun’s rays. Traditional chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, protect your skin by absorbing UV rays.
No matter which formula you choose, the key to a strong defense against skin cancer, sunburns, and early aging is proper sunscreen habits. Even if you only plan on running an errand or two on an overcast day, remember that UVA rays are able to penetrate through clouds, so you should still be applying your sunscreen.
When working indoors, either at home or in an office, most of us forget to account for the incidental sun exposure that we get from going on a quick coffee run or a short walk outside. Even small amounts of sun exposure can add up, which is why it’s best to develop a skincare routine that incorporates daily Broad Spectrum protection.
