    I am extremely susceptible to sun burns and while this product sounds like a cool idea I would not purchase it without it being FDA approved, etc. I also would not purchase it "from TV", only a reputible store like an Eckerd, Wal Mart, etc. And I probably wouldn't purchase it unless is was manufactured by a reputable company like CopperTone, Johnson & Johnson, etc. Not so much because it might affect my hair or swim suite BUT because I would not trust it to protect me from the sun and I CANNOT afford to NOT be protected by a good sun block.

    How long do you have to soak in the pool for it to be effective?
    What about your face, if it is not in the water?
    What's the SPF?
    Can you use other sunscreens once outside the pool without interaction?
    Is the only use a kiddie pool?
    If it is OK to add to larger home pools how long is it effective?
    Does normal filtration remove or damage the protection?
    What is the cost per application for a large pool?
    Does it leave an oily film on the top of the water(or any odor)?
    Will it remove or streak makeup or hair coloring products(or swim suits) if used over time?
    How can I clean out the pool thoroughly if I find I am sensitive to this product?

    On the whole seems like a very narrow share of the market will be interested, and some of those will opt to go with tried and true lotions. Others will prefer to go with individual preferences and needs for each person, as opposed to the same product and protection for everyone. Lotions offer more flexibility for use, cater to differing tastes, can be easily washed off, and are available for in water use.

    Interesting idea, but I wouldn't buy it without having all these questions answered.

    To Canoehead:

    There should be no need to soak for more than a minute or even less in order for it to be effective.

    If the face is to be protected, then the face must be soaked too of course.

    What you mean by SPF?

    Other sunscreens can be used without interaction.

    It is mainly for kiddie pools.

    I dont know the costs, but they are not more than what other suncare products on the market costs in average today.

    I think it there will be a BIG market for it, since there are many kiddie pools and kids/parents around that would prefer it this way. Its much easier.

    If the kids open their eyes underwater will it sting?

    If they just wade, they will need other protection on the rest of their bodies, any interactions?

    Is the product water or oil based?

    If you are selling a sunscreen without knowing what an SPF is you need to do some reading before presenting your product to the powers that be.

    If you read what I have wrote then you will understand that I dont sell any product .. Unfortunately it is not my invention and I will not get rich on it ....

    exactly

    Why should I use this product if I need to use a lotion (and reapply which is the main positive of your product) also?
    I don't want to discourage you- these are the questions you will have to answer when you present the product to a major company.

    You dont have to use another lotion .. if the face is soaked then that is also protected like the rest of the body.
