Do Solar Buddies come with sunscreen?
No. The Solar Buddies are an empty vessel that allows you to fill with a sunscreen of your choice.
What sunscreen is best to use with Solar Buddies?
We always recommend using sunscreens with a medium to thick consistency as thinner sunscreens can leak. It is also advised to use a sunscreen low in alcohol as alcohol can affect adhesive.
How can I tell if suncreen is high in alcohol?
When checking the ingredients of your sunscreen you will be able to roughly tell how much alcohol is in it by how far up the list it is shown. The higher up the list it is the higher the alcohol content.
I am using a thicker sunscreen, but it doesn't seem to be reaching the roller ball. Any advice?
Sometimes thicker creams need a little help to get to the rollerball. You can do this by tapping your Solar Buddie.
Can Solar Buddies be washed?
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.
How long do the Solar Buddies heads last?
The lifespan of the heads depends on how it is used and cared for. We recommend the Solar Buddies are cleaned after the vessel becomes empty. The heads need to be washed on a more regular basis to stop the head becoming clogged with sunscreen. Do not leave the Solar Buddie in direct sunlight or temperatures that exceed 30C. If in extreme heat keep your Solar Buddies in a shaded place. Do not use sunscreens high in alcohol as this can affect the adhesive. If all directions are followed the Solar Buddies can last in excess of 6-8 weeks.
I left my Solar Buddie out in the sun, and now the sponge has fallen off. Is this because I left it out in the sun?
Almost definitely. The Solar Buddies cannot withstand direct heat above 30C as it will interfere with the adhesive. It is best to leave your Solar Buddies in a bag or in the shade to avoid any issues. Do not leave your Solar Buddie in your car on a hot day.
