Product Review: Zealios Sun Barrier 

Zealios makes incredible products. I love their after pool shampoos, conditioners and body lotions. I especially love their Chamois cream. I find it easy to apply and very comfortable. And, I also love their Sun Barrier Sun Tan Lotion! Plus, even though it’s the fall, it’s important to wear sun block throughout the year!

The thing about Zealios is that they are always thinking about their athletes. They know that we’re in the sun much of the day and need the most protection possible. That’s why they have Zealios Sun Barrier SPF 45.

Although the sun provides us with essential vitamins like Vitamin D, we still need to be protected and the more we’re protected, the less likely we will get any type of skin cancer, which is prominent. According to, “Between 40 and 50 percent of Americans who live to age 65 will have either basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma at least once. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form of skin cancer. More than 1 million cases are diagnosed in the U.S. each year.”

Those numbers are huge and no joke! So, we need to be protected when we go out and train.

I found that the Sun Barrier product went on smooth, yet thick, and provided me with good coverage. The main ingredient is zinc oxide, which dries clear and feels great on your skin. It’s oil-free and doesn’t make you feel like your greasy or have any type of chalky residue.

Zealios Sun Barrer has the FDA’s highest rating for water resistance too. So you can apply before the triathlon and it will keep you protected for the swim, bike, and run.
