Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industrial Strength Sunblock One of the best sunblocks available. I've taken this on 4 day trips through The Lost Coast (no shade) and through Arizona canyons (barely any shade) and made it out with zero burns. After days on the trail I come home with a light golden tan while less fortunate companions get turned into tomatoes. I've taken it out to the river where I've spent long days getting in and out of the water. This stuff never seems to lose it's strength throughout the day. The only downside is that it is quite thick and greasy. When wearing it backpacking I find that dirt tends to stick to me very easily as a result. But I would rather deal with that than a sunburn any day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works perfectly I've used Aloe Gator 40+ for many years. The secret is to apply it everywhere that the sun will get to with a thin rubbed on layer. It takes a little patience to thin it out on your body but it works even on your scalp, even if you have just thinning hair. If it is sticky and will rub off, you have put on too much. Daily use on face, head, neck and hands will allow a 4 oz tube to last for months. Full body coverage for swimsuit and beach use will last for at least two weeks. If don't want to get sunburned this is the answer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best sunscreen ever! We are a family with very fair skin. This sunscreen is amazing! I cannot imagine another beach trip, boat outing, a summer camp without Aloe Gator. It is an oil based sunscreen but it dries very quickly, adding moisture to dry skin. I put this on my daughter at 7 AM, send her to a camp in which she is constantly in the sun and water - until 6 PM. With no reapplication, she comes home completely sunburn free. I tell everyone about Aloe Gator. It is guaranteed for eight hours, but it lasts longer. While it may be a tad pricier than what you get in the grocery store, with only one or two applications each day versus four to six with other brands,it is a cost saver! I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Water Resistant Sunscreen This is the best water resistant sunscreen I've found. All the others I've tried are only good for an hour or so in the water. Aloe Gator lasts much longer. I started using it in the 80's on surf trips to Hawaii. That was when I discovered that it also softens rough skin. I was living in Fairbanks, Alaska at that time. During the winter my hands would get dry and cracked from the extreme cold. However on each trip to Hawaii they would heal quickly. Eventually I realized that it was the sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protects from sun and dryness I have been using Aloe Gator for many years. it not only protects from sunburn but moisturizes the skin and treats some minor skin problems. (Aloe juice has many topical health benefits including promoting healing from burns.) I prefer the jell product because it slightly less messy than the cream.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Greasy and gross I used this on a dirt road cycling trip. I bought this because I didn't want to have to buy sunscreen and aloe, thought it would be nice in one. It feels more like bacon grease than aloe or sun screen. It collected more dirt and grime than normal sunscreen and when I went to put on a second coat 4 hours after the first, I had to try and get the grime off first. I didn't have good access to soap or hot water, so I had to use my shirt. TL/DR: Essentially bacon grease that's hard to get off and feels nasty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REally greasy but the best EVER! I have been using aloe gator for well into 15 years and it is theeee best sunblock for me. No tears and stays on for up to eight hours in the surf. Best if reapplied after 4. Glob that stuff on it's great! AND if you do get burned because you didn't use it, glob it on the burn for the next 3 days and it heals and soothes like magic! It's mega greasy tho, so keep that in mind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works but..... its THICK, GREASY, STICKY I guess the things I don't enjoy about it are what make it so good. I have used it under some heavy sweating and it holds up for sure. I have not found the happy medium between having enough for coverage and being greased like a bowling lane. I wish I could give it more stars because it performs its function well. I just need to get over the form VS function of it. Its not my sole sunscreen but if I am going to be sweating or in and out of water it is the lotion I choose.

My daughter is allergic to most sun screens because they have titanium dioxide.  I read the ingredients but am wondering if there lesser ingredients that you didn't list.  please let me know.  Thankyou!
