Solar Buddies work with most sunscreens. We advise not to use oily or watery type sunscreens (e.g Sprays) as they can leak. For us conventional sunscreens from ‘squeezy’ bottles work best. Thicker creams can work but may need a little help getting to a roller ball. If you have any questions about the best products to use please do get in touch! See above for our FAQ’s.
SOLAR BUDDIES ARE SOLD AS AN EMPTY CONTAINER AND WE TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR MISUSE, REACTIONS OR EFFECTS FROM THE SUNSCREEN THAT IS USED IN THEM. ALWAYS FOLLOW OUR GUIDELINES FOR USE AND THE GUIDELINES OF YOUR SUNSCREENS MANUFACTURER.
Use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30, water resistant and has a broad spectrum rating of both UVA and UVB protection.
Use generous amounts of sunscreen and apply every 2 hours regardless of its stated daily recommendations to ensure full ongoing protection.
Sun screen can become less effective if you sweat, remove clothing and go swimming, so reapply after all of these.
Apply sun screen at least 20 minutes before going out. Cover all exposed areas and don’t forget places like the back of neck, back of knee’s, tops of ears, nose and scalp.
Use other sun safe procedures as well as using sun screen. Wear a hat, sunglasses, keep well hydrated and covered up with SPF protective clothing.

Can my Solar Buddy be washed, if so how?
Yes the Solar Buddies can be washed. We recommend you do this every time the vessel becomes empty in luke warm soapy water. The heads need to be washed on a more regular basis to stop the head becoming clogged with sunscreen they then need to be left to air dry. The Solar Buddies are NOT dishwasher safe.
