If you’re looking for the ultimate in sun protection check out Aloe Gator super waterproof SPF 40+ Gel. Aloe Gator is a paba-free, broad spectrum sun ray protector which lasts up to eight hours. Aloe Gator Suncare also touts their sun-block as non-greasy and invisible. It is a little greasy going on, but once applied the greasy feeling dissipates. It really does last all day, even in the water or while sweating heavily. If you’ve ever spent a cloudless summer day on a Cascade volcano you know just how fried every exposed piece of skin can get. Even with only one application in the morning of a long climb and ride on a sunny snowfield, my girlfriend came away with barely a blush of sun.

Aloe Gator is in the midst of changing their packaging so you may find it in either the old white tube with the gator on the front or the new gray and blue tube. Regardless, pick one up before you head off to camp on Hood this summer.
