Our products, like any other item that comes in contact with sunscreen, can be negatively impacted by it. Sunscreen lotion is harmful to paints and enamels of all kinds. To ensure the longevity of our products, we highly recommend refraining from applying sunscreen onto the headband's paint. As time passes, the sunscreen can cause the paint on the headband to fade or erode. Sunscreen has the potential to damage a variety of items, including car paint and clear finishes.
