About Us - Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen
Blue Lizard® Australian Sunscreen was born in Australia, where standards for sunscreens are the highest in the world. Although our products are now manufactured in the U.S., we continue to adhere to the most stringent Australian standards because we want to protect your skin while you play under the sun.
EAT YOUR VEGGIES!!! (...and wear sunscreen too)
You’ve undoubtedly heard about the importance of using sunscreen before -- so what makes Blue Lizard® different than other sunscreens? For one, we are ranked as a top sunscreen by the Environmental Working Group -- they work on behalf of consumers like you, not for businesses like us.
Doctors Love Us
Blue Lizard® is the brand most recommended by pediatricians and dermatologists. Why? Because our products are not only effective, but our Baby and Sensitive formulas are as safe as a sunscreen formula can be.
Serious Broad-Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection
Blue Lizard’s Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is 30+. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) limits the maximum SPF value at 50+, check this out: if you buy a sunscreen that advertises an SPF of more than 30+, you’re paying for something that doesn’t really exist, like vegetarian chickens. And speaking of chickens, our products are never tested on animals.
Blue Lizard® not only protects you against the burning UVB rays but also against harmful UVA rays – the rays that cause sun damage most associated with aging and melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Not all sunscreens have this capability. All of our products are broad spectrum -- and that’s kind of a big deal in terms of skin safety.
Manufacturers can’t make claims that sunscreens are waterproof or sweat-proof, but they can claim their product is “water-resistant” for up to 80 minutes in still (not moving) water. That’s the highest claim allowed in the U.S.; Blue Lizard® Australian Sunscreen, Regular and Sport formulations, meet this U.S. water-resistance standard of 80 minutes. Remember those Australian standards we talked about earlier? In Blue Lizard’s water resistance test, Blue Lizard® Sport stayed on for 240 minutes in whirlpool water. That’s four hours of continual coverage in 105 degree moving water. We can’t state it on our bottle, but we can back it up.
High Quality Made in the U.S.A.
Blue Lizard® is manufactured by Crown Laboratories in Johnson City, Tenn. We’re a pharmaceutical company that makes prescription-grade dermatology solutions, not just a cosmetics company like those brands that produce most of the sunscreens on the market. All Crown Laboratories makes are pharmaceutical-grade dermatology solutions, and we have extraordinarily high standards and use only the highest quality ingredients.
We’re also an American company that takes great pride in what we do. Many of our employees have been with us for more than 20 years. We care about our employees and our customers.
Trust the Lizard.
Dermatologist-recommended Blue Lizard® Australian Sunscreen delivers clinically proven broad-spectrum UVA and UVB skin protection. Our products offer the most advanced, high-quality formulations to provide the ultimate in safe sun protection. Blue Lizard’s patented BPA-free Smart Bottle™ serves as a valuable educational tool, as it turns blue (or pink for our Baby formula) in the presence of harmful UV rays. That’s right. You bring the sun, Blue Lizard® brings the magic.
While we prefer you choose Blue Lizard®, we’ll count it as a win if you understand the importance of sun safety and just use a sunscreen that works.
