I spent the last month at our
marina in Belize and received great feedback on
Z Blok. So we're pulling all other sunscreens
and will only be selling the Z Blok. We're coming
up with a plan to expand the distribution within
the area. They're so conscious of protecting the
environment and I feel your product would be exactly
what the tourists want.

am sending a photo of what chemotherapy looks
like. I had to do a round of topical chemo (flourcil,
also can be delivered via IV) for skin cancer
caused from sun damage.
As I said in my previous email
to you I never wore sunscreen because I never
found one that didn't burn my eyes or make me
feel like I was wrapped in a plastic coating;
that was until I was lucky enough to find your
I wear it daily with no burning
eyes and it leaves my skin feeling natural.
Feel free to use the photo as a
warning to others on your website the chemo made
me so sick it was just awful.
Z Blok is the best sunblock on the
market. We use it on the 49er exclusively. It
lasts all day in whatever conditions we are in,
which can often be very wet. We spent 6 weeks
in Australia last fall, and came home without
as much as a tan. It is key for us to be able
to apply at the beginning of the day and know
that application will last. The no-sting formula
allows us to keep focused on what really matters.

On PUMA'S il mostro,
we have been running a brand new sunblock called
Z Blok. The company had been doing research for
10 years. They came to me with an idea: If they
could eliminate eye stinging from sunblock and
upgrade the UV protection as well as do it odor
free, would we be interested in trying it out?
I thought, can the stuff also drive fast in a
So we tried it on Rambler last year
in the Buenos Aires to Rio race and low and behold
the stuff did what they said it would. It is key
for boats like this to have the non stinging part
because we are almost always wet on deck. The
UV protection is nothing short of fantastic. And
we don't smell like perfume. All good. So thank
you Z Blok. You have certainly made our lives
a lot more bearable as we cross the equator 4
times in this race. Pretty psyched we made this
choice for such a key item.

I'¹ve been smearing Z Blok
on my mug for over two years now in a variety
conditions and I have to say it's the best sunblock
I've ever used. Whether
I was surfing the North Island of New Zealand,
climbing Aconcagua in
Argentina, kayaking around the four northern Channel
Islands or exploring
the Colorado Desert, I swear by the stuff.
Last winter I didn't get sunburned once at Rincon
with sessions sometimes
lasting five hours. On long trail runs sweat didn¹t
wash it off, nor did it
sting my eyes.

My name is Skyler Palmer. I just
completed the 2010 Vic-Maui sailboat race from
Victoria BC to Hawaii. I was aboard the boat Terremoto.
Myself and the other three crew were very impressed
by the performance of your product offshore. We
were out for eleven days and when we got to shore
there were multiple comments that we didn't even
get tan. This is the first summertime offshore
trip where I haven't seen a single sun burn.

When I am fishing I am usually in
an area near the equator where the sun is toughest
on your skin and the weather is very warm. I like
the fact that there is no sting when I perspire
and no paba burn on my skin... it is good stuff.
I didn't originally connect the Z in the name
with Zinc, but I have always heard that Zinc and
Zinc Oxide are among the very best sun protection
ingredients. I have had a lot of basil cell issues
in the last 20 years and I am always looking for
the best products...glad I found Z Block.

I really like Z Blok. All the other
products I have tried have led to
burning eyes for hours after playing tennis on
hot, high sweat days. Z Blok is much better in
that regard. Thank you for the customer service.

I recently tested Z Blok on an all
day fishing trip. It was quite warm that day and
even though I broke a sweat it did not burn my
eyes as advertised. My arms had to reach into
the water several times to release fish and the
Z Blok did not wash off as many lesser sunscreens
would tend to do. Overall a great product for
the outdoorsman who will work up a sweat and still
wants a good sunscreen that blocks UVA and UVB.

On August 22nd, my team completed
the Eco Primal Quest, a 600-mile adventure race
that took place in the very sunny South Dakota.
Known as the ‘World’s Toughest Human
Endurance Race”, our team were delighted
to finish the race in 9th position among the world’s
elite. After near race ending sun burn in our
last ‘heat’ race, this year we made
every effort to prevent another occurrence, which
is how we came across ZBlok. Thankfully, our efforts
paid off and ZBlok lived up to its promise and
protected our team along every mile of the race.
Along with the obvious importance of being protected
from both UVA and UVB rays, one of the huge benefits
we found was that despite the amount of sweat,
never once did we experience that eye closing,
stinging sensation when sunscreen gets in your
eyes. I can’t tell you how important this
is when you are racing down the side of a technical
downhill on your bike, or whipping down a white-water
river!!! ZBlok proved itself mile after mile and
has made its way on to our ‘must have’
Thanks so much for your superb product,
Team Endurox R4 Captain
I love the fact that Z Blok does
not sting my eyes. It is nice to
know that I'll never miss another wind shift due
to a burning sensation in
North Sails, San Diego, CA
Great product. I used it on a 4
day boat delivery from St. Pete to New Orleans.
Then it made the 2009 Jazz Fest for two weekends.
It does exactly what you advertise.
Because it does not irritate my eyes, I put it
on any time I am out in the sun.
After paying the price for years
in the sun as a kid, when no one knew What the
sun could do to you, this product will be with
me at all times.

I am a sailor who enjoys the sun
year round if possible. Due to years of sun exposure,
I am prone to Sun poisoning. This year, on my
vacation to St. John, I used Z-Blok for the first
time. I was skeptical at first, but to my delight
I did not have one issue with sunburn or sun poisoning!
I am now a convert - the only sunblock I will
use is Z-Blok!
