A single product with a combination of both sunscreen and insect repellant sure sounds like a great idea, certainly in terms of ease application of two very important ingredients, time, cost and even one less layer to apply. Well, it may sound like a great idea, but it’s really not and we don’t recommend them. Let me explain why. As you know, for sunscreen to work effectively, you need to reapply it frequently, but with insect repellants, if you use too much or apply it too frequently, it can cause an irritation or even can be dangerous. So if you’re using a combination product that has both sunscreen and insect repellant and you’re applying it frequently enough to get adequate sun protection, you’ll be getting too much insect repellant ingredients and if you’re using that same single product and applying it infrequently enough so you don’t get too much insect repellant, you won’t be getting enough sun protection. So this is the bottom line: use two separate products for sunscreen and insect repellants, use them as directed by the manufacturer so you can optimize the protection from each of them respectively, and remember, always apply your sunscreen first.
