Frequently asked Questions.

Do the Solar Buddies come with sunscreen?

No. The Solar Buddies are an empty vessel that allows you to fill with a sunscreen of your choice.

What sunscreens are best to use in my Solar Buddie?

We always recommend using sunscreens with a medium to thick consistency as thinner sunscreens can leak.

I am trying to use a thick sunscreen but it doesn't seem to be reaching the roller ball. Do you have any advice?

Sometimes thicker creams need a little help to get to the rollerball. You can do this by giving your Solar Buddie a good old tap. We call it ‘the ketchup tap!’

Can the Solar Buddies be washed, if so how?

Yes the Solar Buddies can be washed. We recommend you do this every time the vessel becomes empty in luke warm soapy water. The heads need to be washed on a more regular basis to stop the head becoming clogged with sunscreen they then need to be left to air dry. The Solar Buddies are NOT dishwasher safe.

How long do the Solar Buddies heads last?

The lifespan of the heads depends on how it is used and cared for. We recommend the Solar Buddies are cleaned after the vessel becomes empty. The heads need to be washed on a more regular basis to stop the head becoming clogged with sunscreen. Do not leave the Solar Buddie in direct sunlight or temperatures that exceed 30C. If in extreme heat keep your Solar Buddies in a shaded place. Do not use sunscreens high in alcohol as this can affect the adhesive. If all directions are followed the Solar Buddies can last in excess of 6-8 weeks.

I left my Solar Buddie in the sun, the next time I went to use it the sponge had fallen off. Could the heat have caused this?

Almost definitely. The Solar Buddies cannot withstand direct heat above 30C as it will interfere with the adhesive. It is best to leave your Solar Buddies in a bag or in the shade to avoid any issues. Do not leave your Solar Buddie in your car on a hot day.
