QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

1) What ethnic skin types are you finding can use the product please?

All skin tones and it works for about 99% of them, from very fair to very dark. 

2) Do you need to reapply like normal sunscreen?  i.e. you go in the swimming pool.  Do you need to reapply? I do notice that it’s hard to remove which is a good thing. 

Yes, it definitely stays on. 

For normal use - As far as sunscreens go, there are two classifications – physical blockers/reflectors and chemical blockers/absorbers.  The physical sunscreens (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) work by sitting on top of your skin and reflecting the dangerous rays away from your skin.  These products don’t break down from exposure to the sun.  Chemical absorbers (like avobenzone, oxybenzone, etc) work by sinking into the skin’s top layer, absorbing the sun’s rays thru a chemical reaction, and releasing the radiation as energy before it harms you (which is why you sometime feel warmer when you are wearing chemical sunscreens).  Since chemical sunscreens work thru a chemical reaction, they break down over time and should be reapplied every two hours.  BOB contains physical sunscreens and therefore you could, practically speaking, wear it all day and not need to reapply.  However, the FDA requires us to recommend reapplying every two hours (as they do for all sunscreen products).

For use in the water/sweating – The FDA provides criteria by which you may call a sunscreen water/sweat resistant (40 minutes) or very water/sweat resistant (80 minutes).  The testing guidelines are outlined by the FDA and based on the results your product will qualify to be:  not water/sweat resistant, water/sweat resistant for 40 minutes of moderate activity, or water/sweat resistant for 80 minutes of moderate activity.  BOB tested out at 80 minutes – that means that after 80 minutes of water activity or sweating, it maintained its SPF 30 protection.  So, if a person uses it with water activity or for sports, they should reapply every 80 minutes.

3) Are you hearing that any other sunscreen is required?

In other words, it literally protects fully and there is no need for further protection (however, coming from SkinCeuticals angle, an antioxidant in conjunction with sun protection is best!)

BOB tested at SPF 30 Broad Spectrum (protects against both UVA and UVB rays), so you could use it just like any other SPF 30 sunscreen, without any need for further protection. 

Apparently, green tea when taken orally and topically, can provide sun protection.  We have it covered topically – just need the oral part now! 

BOB contains green tea leaf extract, a natural antioxidant; safflower seed oil which functions as an emollient that moisturises and protects the skin; and chamomile extract and honeysuckle that help prevent skin inflammation and irritation that may be caused by sun exposure. 

4) I would suggest this product is not really ideal for full bodies, so we are talking face, neck, decolette and hands? 

Correct – while BOB could be used on your entire body, it wouldn't really be practical.  What we tell people is that while this product could be used as an all-body sunscreen, the intent isn’t really to be a “Coppertone” replacement; it isn’t intended to be a full body beach/pool product.

BOB is intended to provide EVERYDAY protection as people are out and about doing EVERYDAY activities – walking the dog, golfing, tennis, kid’s football practice, gardening, driving in a convertible, playing in the park, etc.  BOB provides protection for those areas that are exposed on an everyday basis – face, neck, arms, hands.  When used in that fashion, one BOB is a 2-3 month supply. 

5) How do I know if I’m applying enough? As it’s translucent I am worried that I cannot see?

While the product is translucent, you can quickly learn to tell if you have it on.  The best way  to demonstrate to users is to buff the back of one hand, then hold your hands up together.  The results are a very slight matte finish that isn’t noticeable in general, but if you look side to side, you will see/can tell the difference. 

For application, the user needs to make sure to turn the bottom cylinder to open.  Flick the brush until you see powder on the brush head and begin applying.  Flick again if it looks like there is no powder remaining on the brush head, less if you see flying powder.  Buff lightly in a downward or circular motion, making sure to include forehead, eyelids, cheeks, nose, jawline and chin; continue with back of ears and down the neck (and arms and hands if exposed).  If it looks like there is no powder on the brush head, you will need to flick again.  The results should be a slight matte finish, similar to what you saw in the hand demonstration above.

Tell men to use it like they are putting on shaving cream with a brush.
