Island Tribe sunscreens are designed to give the user maximum protection against both UVA and UVB rays, more than this, the specific formula will stay on your skin for the duration of your activity. Many brands claim to have water resistant sunscreens. Then you read the first ingredient and it says “Aqua”! Good one. We’ve learnt that a water-base in water is not the best way to have a long lasting water-specific sunscreen (See Sport Sun Protection). Don’t pollute the ocean with a water based sunscreen.
Our products are recognised by CANSA as protection against the harmful effects of the sun.
The Island Tribe brand was launched in 1992 with the aim of providing a waterproof sun protection to surfers and other watersport enthusiasts. The range consisted of one product only, the Island Tribe Clear Gel, which to this day has been unrivaled by competition for water resistance. The brand is now distributed in 25 countries worldwide.
