Frequently Asked Questions

Dear Banana Boat® Community,

We are aware of the voluntary recall of a selection of aerosol sunscreen products manufactured by another company due to detected levels of benzene. We wanted to let you know that we are confident in the safety and efficacy of our Banana Boat® sunscreens. Our mission is to help you and your family have fun in the sun. We know this means you need suncare protection that you can trust.

Our goal is to provide our consumers with access to a wide variety of safe, effective and innovative sunscreens. Our sunscreens are backed by decades of safe use to help adults and children guard against the dangers of sun exposure. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) governs various aspects of product testing, ingredient use, quality requirements, packaging and labelling so that it can ensure all products meet safety and quality requirements before reaching consumers. All Banana Boat® products meet applicable FDA regulations for sunscreens, which are some of the strictest in the world.
