Golfersskin Makes The Grade On Tours

Ben Steward decided to get into the sunscreen business not long after a good friend died of skin cancer, at the tragically young age of 33. And in fairly short order, the New Zealand native created Golfersskin, which is now being used by more than 200 players on the top professional tours. Golfersskin is made in New Zealand, which Steward says has much stricter regulations in regard to sunscreen than most other countries due to the very quick burn rate there. And he asserts that his product offers total UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection with an SPF of 30. “That in and of itself is very important,” he says. “But what makes Golfersskin really good is the way we have removed all non-essential oils from the formula. It’s free of all the nasties, which means it is not greasy and won’t run into your eyes, no matter how much you sweat. Nor will it interfere with your grip.” In addition, Steward says that Golfersskin nourishes skin with aloe vera and UMF 18 Manuka honey, which is unique to New Zealand and is touted for its anti-bacterial and antioxidant benefits. The honey is also known for assisting the body’s ability to hydrate and has been used to treat skin conditions and even to provide burn relief.
