Commonly Asked Questions

KINeSYS is owned by a Canadian company. We are a small team of Canadians and Australians love early mornings, pursue an active lifestyle – wearing KINeSYS of course, and are fuelled by good coffee.

The KINeSYS range of sunscreens, along with most of our packaging components, are proudly made in Vancouver, Canada.

Our sunscreens have a shelf life of 3 years. Each product’s Expiration Date and Lot Number are printed on the bottom of the bottle. Remember to store sunscreen out of direct sunlight and avoid extreme temperatures.

The list of what we don’t put in our sunscreens, makes them the ideal option for active people.
Our hypoallergenic sunscreens are all oil, alcohol, PABA, paraben and preservative-free.

Unlike traditional products, KINeSYS Sunscreens do not require messy rubbing and they dry quickly without oily residue to hinder grip. This makes KINeSYS ideal for tennis, baseball, cycling, golf and ball-sports.

Our products feel like no others on the market, with their advanced formulas, and non-aerosol microspray application.

They withstand vigorous activity and allow skin pores to breathe normally. However you perform, KINeSYS is the choice for active skin.

All KINeSYS sunscreens are Broad Spectrum, meaning they are formulated to provide protection from harmful UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays.
Being outdoors has countless benefits; but spending time in the sun can increase your risk of skin damage. Respect your skin and help decrease the risk by taking sun protection measures. These include wearing a long sleeved shirt, trousers, a broad brimmed hat and sunglasses, regularly apply sunscreen as directed and limit sun exposure in peak UV times.

All KINeSYS Sunscreens reach the highest water-resistant claim permitted by Health Canada and FDA of 80 minutes.
To be effective, remember to apply sunscreen generously and spread evenly by hand at least 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. Regardless of water resistance, sunscreen needs to be reapplied at least every 2 hours or after 80 minutes of swimming, if sweating heavily, and immediately after towel drying.

For children under 6 months consult a health care practitioner prior to using sunscreen on them.
For children over 6 months the list of what we don’t put in our sunscreen, makes them an ideal option for the whole family. Our products are oil, alcohol, PABA, paraben and preservative free and hypoallergenic.
Prior to use we recommend reviewing the product’s active and inactive ingredients and conducting a small patch test to ensure your child isn’t sensitive to one of the ingredients.
SPF30 Kids Spray is also scent-free. The pump application and lack of alcohol means KINeSYS sprays are easy to apply and aren’t cold on the skin!
Remember, it is important to keep infants and children protected from the sun.  Use shade, cover as much exposed skin with UPF50+ clothing, wear a broad brimmed hat, and sunglasses; and encourage the daily use of sunscreen.

Our sunscreen formulas are all non-comedogenic – meaning they allow your skin to breathe and won’t block your pores.

A number of our sunscreens are Fragrance Free; including Sprays SPF 30 and SPF 50 Fragrance Free and SPF30 Kids, and SPF30 Sun Protection Stick.
Other products are lightly scented, with signature fragrances including Mango and Vanilla-Green Tea.
