BANXblock

best natural sunscreen

doctor created | surfer approved

BANXblock is the best all natural sunscreen designed for active lifestyles in the water and sun by Kitty Hawk, NC  plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeff Pokorny. For years Dr. Pokorny has been treating the surfers, fishermen, golfers, and sun bathers who live, work and play along the beaches of North Carolina and suffer the consequences of prolonged exposure to the sun. After treatment or surgery, many of his patients would ask for his recommendation on the type of sunscreen they should use while maintaining their lifestyle. After researching all the medical grade sunscreens, Dr. Pokorny found that he could not recommend any of them as the best natural sunscreen. It seemed that every product available to the general public either used chemicals that were harmful to the skin, or provided inadequate protection from the sun.

In the summer of 2013, Dr. Pokorny came up with his own design and BANXblock was born. Initially BANXblock was sold only in his own medical offices and in a few local pharmacies. He didn’t expect the word of mouth demand that came from his patients bragging to their friends. It fell to his wife, Anne and a few of her good friends, to relaunch the product in an attractive and convenient squeeze bottle that an active, happy person would use.  They then introduced it into the surf shops and retail stores where the active, happy people go. And so it began.
