Sol Sunguard Alpine SPF25
Here's what other sites are saying:
Sol Sunguards Alpine SPF 25 sunscreen is the perfect high altitude, intense sun exposure type of sunscreen that will keep you protected. Sol Sunguard does the job better than any other sunscreen on the market and that's why we at Tahoe Mountain Sports are proud to offer it to our customers. For every 1,000 feet of elevation, UV intensity increases a whopping 4 to 5 percent. So the last thing you need at altitude is an ordinary, sea level sunscreen. That's why Sol Alpine uses UV scattering mineral oxides plus emulsion-loc technology that keeps the sunscreen on your skin and out of your eyes. Also, the air gets drier the higher you go, Sol Alpine helps prevent skin dryness with a gentle moisture barrier. All of which makes for a non-greasy, UVA/UVB protecting lotion that's unscented and easy on the face and skin. Available in 2 sizes, the smaller size comes with a carabiner. Extra gentle, formulated for mountain sports. Retains SPF protectin after 80 minutes in water or sweating. Available in 1.5 oz or 4 oz. containers. Active Ingredients: Octinoxate: 7.5 Percent, Zinc Oxide: 5 Percent and Ensulizole: 4 Percent. SPF 25

High altitude. UV intensity increases 4-5% for every 1000' of elevation. At 10,000' (like skiing in Breckenridge CO), you can be exposed to 50% more UV. Addreflection off snow and you've got serious protection needs. Broad Spectrum (UVA& UBV) protection helps prevent long-term sun damage Active Durability. With added UV intensity, mountain sports athletes need sunscreen formulations that won't fade in harsh conditions. Chemical sunscreens expire after UV exposure; mineral oxide sunscreens do not. Careful choice of sunscreen active ingredients is essential. High and Dry. Higher elevations have very dry air. Your skin needs extra protection against moisture loss. Sweat Resistance. Running around the mountains can work up a heck of a sweat, even in the winter. If your sunscreen melts like snow in the Mojave you've got eye-sting and sunburn.
