November 25, 2008 – – Newport, RI – – Z Blok Sunscreen has been named the official sunscreen of the Puma Ocean Racing Team currently participating in the 2008/09 Volvo Ocean Race. Formulated by sailors with sailors in mind, Z Blok’s non-greasy formula will not burn or irritate eyes because it does not contain the inexpensive petroleum derivatives that cause eye irritation when water or sweat inevitatebly causes sunscreen to migrate into the eyes. This allows sailors to concentrate on winning the race or just enjoying a great day on the water. In addition, Z Blok sunscreen is totally fragrance free, which marketing research has proven to be a highly desirable attribute among both male and female sailors. These two attributes make Z Blok totally unique and perfect for sailors.
Z Blok Sunscreen is being used by the Puma Ocean Racing Team on the grueling 37,000 mile Volvo Ocean Race in extremely challenging weather and ocean conditions.
After testing Z Blok Sunscreen last winter on the Buenos Aires to Rio De Janeiro Race, PUMA Ocean Racing Team skipper Kenny Read said, “The UV protection is excellent. The entire team are true believers. We have certainly put the sunscreen to a tough test that few others can. Importantly we have experienced no eye stinging or irritation and we use it every day.”
