Discount to be offered to USA Water Polo members

Huntington Beach, Calif. – January 20, 2015 — BANXblock, an all-natural performance sunscreen, has been named the official sunscreen of USA Water Polo through 2015. As part of the agreement BANXblock will supply sunscreen to the USA Water Polo Men’s and Women’s National Teams along with sun safe editorial content for USA Water Polo’s communication efforts including SkipShot magazine and monthly e-newsletters. USA Water Polo members will also benefit in the partnership receiving discounts on BANXblock sunscreen.

“This partnership is ideal for USA Water Polo. With the amount of time that our members spend in the sun it is important that they keep their skin protected. BANXblock will provide them with the necessary protection to keep them in the pool. We look forward to the support BANXblock will provide to our National Teams but also to all USA Water Polo members,” said Jeff Dyrek, USA Water Polo Director of Marketing.

“BANXblock is proud to support USA Water Polo through its National Teams as well as its entire membership. We created BANXblock for people just like USA Water Polo members, those who love being active and need absolute confidence of protection when out in the sun, “said Anne Pokorny, President of BANXblock. “We look forward to working with USA Water Polo to keep its members safe in the sun through education around sun and sunscreen safety as well as use of an all-natural sunscreen.”

Created by Dr. Jeff Pokorny on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, BANXblock is an all-natural, zinc based, paraben free sunscreen that is also environmentally friendly. There is no doubt that Zinc provides the most protection against both UVA and UVB radiation. Zinc is a physical barrier to the sun’s radiation and, like a layer of clothing, actually blocks sunlight from coming in contact with the skin. Zinc is the primary ingredient in BANXblock, making it a high quality, best natural sunscreen. BANXblock uses Beeswax as its primary emulsifier, making the product both water resistant and non-comedogenic. This makes the sunscreen ideal for individuals with sensitive skin and with a history of outbreaks associated with sunscreen use. BANXblock is the best natural sunscreen choice because it is all natural, water-resistant, non-comedogenic and a physical barrier to the sun’s radiation, blocking the radiation associated with sunburns and skin cancer.
