Ocean Potion, made by Sun & Skin Care Research, LLC, contains a nourishing, Vitamin D3 fortified, fast-absorbing formula that is oil-free with a signature orange-cream fragrance.  The brand offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB Protection from SPF 15 – SPF 70 and is the ideal sunscreen to use when building castles in the sand.

Sun Protection Tips
Sunscreen is the number one tool in the toolbox when building sandcastles in the sun.  Unprotected exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light can put you at risk for skin cancer, which, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is the most common form of cancer in the United States. To decrease your risk, limit exposure, especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.  Regularly use a water-resistant, broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen with a value of 15 or higher and apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure and every hour as needed, particularly after swimming or perspiring.
