What to Look for in Sunscreen for Cricket 

When looking for a sunscreen for cricket, there are a few things to keep in mind:

SPF protection: The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect your skin against UVB rays, the rays that cause sunburn. Most dermatologists suggest using a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher as they block 97% of the sun's UVB rays.

Broad-spectrum protection: Cricket players need the right sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection, which means protection against both UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays cause aging and wrinkles, while UVB rays can cause sunburns.

Sweat and water-resistant: As cricket is an outdoor sport, cricketers sweat a lot, and their sunscreen should be waterproof or sweat-resistant for better protection.

Non-greasy formula: Sunscreens come in a range of consistencies (lotions, gels, sprays), but cricketers should always look for a non-greasy, lightweight formula that won't impact their grip on the bat.

A range of vibrant colours to stand out: It's vitally important your cricket sunscreen comes in a range of colours for your face. If you don't stand out, then how will you get the girl or guy you fancy? think about it, it's science.

White is the overwhelming favourite colour for cricket sun cream. At Sun Zapper we offer two variations of white cricket sun cream.
