Sunscreen in Bulk

We all have our favorite sunscreens... those handy small bottles that fit in a dry bag for day trips. What do y'all use for sunscreen on board that can be bought in large quantity... larger than a 20 oz bottle? Obviously investing in sun protective clothing is a must. But when on the water everyday a good/great sunscreen is equally important. Thanks!

Re: Sunscreen in Bulk

20 oz? Enough for 20 Aussies?

Re: Sunscreen in Bulk

16oz bottles of NoAd Sunblock are the best value at ~US$0.53 per fluid ounce. Effective and stays on while swimming. The only bulk (gallon containers) products I've seen are >US$1.00 per fluid ounce.

Re: Sunscreen in Bulk

I buy 1 litre pump containers of SPF 50+ from a Priceline pharmacy when I'm in Australia.

AUD 15 - which for you imperialists, works out at about US$0.30 per fluid ounce.

Re: Sunscreen in Bulk

Maybe it's just me... but I can't help imagining walking down a beach with one of those gallon jugs and lubeing up all the babes. Of course, I'd have a badge or something, so it would be legit.



And a tip jar.



Say, where's that "making money while sailing" thread?

Wow, I didn't know The Todd had retired from being a surgeon and become a cruiser.
