  1. > Is the Arizona Sun Moisturizer good for use on the entire body?

    Yes. Women tell us they use it for their face (under or over makeup), hands, legs and elbows. Men also enjoy using it to moisturize and even as a soothing after shave. Use it every day. Remember, it is nongreasy and gives you SPF 3 protection.

  2. > Can excess sun cause premature aging of the skin?

    Yes. Dermatologists will tell you the most reasonable method for avoiding wrinkles is to avoid skin exposure to the sun through daily application of sun block. That is why we include an SPF 3 sun block in our moisturizer. It's the easiest, best way to apply sun block each day.

  3. > What does the SPF number mean?

    The SPF (Sun Protection Factor) number, multiplied by 15 minutes indicates the length of time in the sun a product will protect your from burning. SPF 4 equals 60 minutes of protection. SPF 8 equals 2 hours of protection. Note: In response to the many requests from our customers we are now offering an SPRAY OIL FREE/WATER-RESISTANT SPF-45 Product

  4. > Is there a proper way to protect my skin?

    Yes. Apply sun block or tanning lotion 30 minutes before sun exposure. It must be absorbed by the skin to be effective. Reapply every two hours during extended sun exposure or immediately after swimming or heavy perspiring.

  6. > Why is it important to use a product that is "PABA-Free"?

    PABA was used in many of the first sun blocks for its sun absorbing properties. It, however, irritated some people's skin. None of our products contain PABA

  7. > How do sun screens and blocks work?

    Sun protection products work by either absorbing or blocking ultraviolet light. Most products block or absorb, but rarely offer both forms of protection. All ArizonaSun Products® absorb and block a broad spectrum of harmful ultraviolet light, including UVA and UVB rays. We accomplish this by combining the natural sun protectants found in southwestern plants and cacti with the latest developments in sun protection research.
