Frequently Asked Questions

Dear Banana Boat® Community,

At Banana Boat, our mission is to Protect the Fun – which starts with staying safe in the sun. We know this means you need sun 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, and we are always working to monitor the quality of our products against these strict standards and our own internal standards for safety and quality.

Sunscreens are a vital part of a sun safe regimen, protecting the skin against sun damage and reducing a person’s risk for developing melanoma and other forms of skin cancer. Please refer to the frequently asked questions below to learn more. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer service team at 1-800-SAFESUN or on our website. All media inquiries can be directed to
