Crown Therapeutics, a division of Crown Laboratories, has launched a range of SPF 50 mineral aerosol spray sunscreens using novel propellant technology.
Expanding the Blue Lizard® Australian Sunscreen franchise, Crown Therapeutics’ new range is in line with the brand’s commitment to providing quality sun protection options that are safe for consumers and the environment.
The mineral SPF 50+ sunscreens are zinc oxide-only formulas that provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and are made with antioxidants and skin-nourishing botanical ingredients. Using a unique earth-friendly propellant that emits ultra-low global warming potential and photochemical reactivity, the sunscreen collection is available in convenient delivery modalities and is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes.
“We are extremely proud to develop and launch a unique line of safe, effective, and environmentally-conscious mineral spray sunscreens,” said Steve Gallopo, Crown Laboratories’ vice-president of global OTC sales and marketing.
“We specifically developed a zinc-only formulation, due to the rising concerns associated with airborne titanium dioxide, which are found in many aerosol sunscreens. We also knew when developing these products that we had to balance aesthetics with effectiveness.
“Our new Blue Lizard Mineral SPF 50+ sprays offer the convenience of a spray mineral sunscreen that absorbs evenly into the skin without a sticky white cast post-application.”
As part of the Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen’s ‘We Love the Reef’ line, the new eco-friendly Mineral SPF 50+ Spray Sunscreen formulations are fully compliant with the reef-safe sunscreen legislation passed in Hawaii and Key West and meet the US Food and Drug Administration’s standard regulatory requirements to ensure sunscreen is safe and effective.
