DOES THE BOTTLE ACTUALLY CHANGE COLORS?
You bet! All of our products come in our patented Smart Bottles™ that change color when exposed to UV light. Regular, Sport, Sensitive and Face turn blue and Baby turns pink.
WHY DOES THE BLUE LIZARD BOTTLE (3 OZ. CAP) CHANGE COLOR?
We incorporated a dye in the plastic that is sensitive to UV. This is to serve as an indicator of the presence of UV rays and a reminder to wear sunscreen.
WAIT, SO DOES THE SUNSCREEN CHANGE COLOR?
No, only the packaging.

IS BLUE LIZARD SAFE TO USE ON INFANTS? HOW OLD SHOULD A CHILD BE?
Parents should consult with their pediatrician before using any sunscreen on a child younger than 6 months. For children older than 6 months, we recommend our Blue Lizard Baby or Sensitive products to minimize risk of skin sensitivity.
CAN BLUE LIZARD BE USED UNDER MAKE-UP/MOISTURIZER?
