We all know what to do to prevent sun burn? But what do you do when it is too late? Everyone and their grandma has some kind of home remedy for sun burn, but Banana Boat has the sun burn cure, Banana Boat Soothing Aloe After Sun Gel. Is it safe though? Before slathering your entire family with a new skin care product is important to do your research! Lucky for you, we took that first step for you. Here is a product over view for this After Sun Gel.
Water, SD Alcohol 40, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Leaf Juice, Fragrance, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Benzophenone 4, Yellow 5 Lake, Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090)
Are the ingredients safe?
If you are sensitive to fragrance or allergic to coloring, this is not the product for you. Everything else about the gel is pretty standard to similar products. Aloe is nature’s natural burn soother. While I wouldn’t eat it, it is safe to put on the skin. If you are sensitive to different gels and lotions be sure to do a test patch before applying liberally.
“My husband and I have been using this product for at least 20 years. We made the mistake of trying what was supposed to be a comparable product. It wasn’t even close! We threw the rest away and went and got a new bottle of After Sun Gel. Because we can’t always find it, we also make sure we always have one bottle in reserve so we never run out.”
“go when I was badly sunburned in the Caribbean. It smells clean and is absorbed quickly. I lived in the Caribbean at that time and I knew that the aloe plant “goo” is a great healing agent but it has a very pungent smell. I don’t know how they make it smell so good but i don’t /won’t use any other aloe product because of it. After 4 days, my burn turned to tan and i had zero peeling. GREAT STUFF! I bought 5 bottles before leaving to move back to the states and I just fin7shed up the last bottle. I am very happy to know its still around.”
“This has been a life saver It cools and soothes sunburns instantly and it’s the perfect companion with sunscreen I carry it when I carry my sunscreen with me to the lake.”
Users pretty unanimously agree that this stuff works really well and they have depended on it for years, sometimes decades. It has been proven by users to help heal even the worst equatorial sun burns. It soothes instantly, which is the key to an after burn gel. When you are in that kind of pain or your child is, you want fast relief, now.
How to Apply:
Simply put on the affected areas, as much as you need to feel soothed and moisturized and reapply as needed. You may not feel like rubbing it in, but this can help the moisture penetrate the first layer of skin for quicker aloe healing.
