What is the highest SPF sunscreen? The highest I've seen is SPF 70 -- Hawaiian Tropic Ozone Block.

I also find that the stick form is much better than squirting something out of a bottle. Unfortunately, Hawaiian only sells an SPF 50 stick.

The highest I've seen is the SPF 7 from HT. I am very fair skinned and I can not go outside for any length of time without at least SPF 45, and the one I like the best and seems to work the best for me is Hawaiian Tropic brand. I have had great results with this one.... and it doesn't stink too badly either....lol

Do you mean SPF 70 for HT?

If so, I get mine at Wal-Mart. Bottle is pretty small. Do you have a better source/bigger bottle?

LOL yep SPF 70 was what I meant. Darn typos.

I've only seen it in a small bottle myself. Maybe HT has a website with more info? Just a thought.

Do you have any suggestions for an after-sun lotion? Something that would prevent peeling, reddening, and burning?

What I do when I get sunburnt is I start with SeaBreeze to help take the sting out. Then apply a lotion with coco butter in it. The coco butter helps heal the skin and keep the moisture in which helps minimize pealing.

This works really well for me. I get sunburt rather easily, so I've tried just about every cure known to man.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. Do you recommend any particular brand of butter lotion?

What is SeaBreeze? Who makes it? Where can I buy it?

Sea Breeze is a type of astringent skin cleaner. It is it's own brand actually.

Just about any moisturizing lotion will work, the key is to keep moisture in the skin.
