How Can We Enhance
We are the only sunscreen that takes leisure as seriously as we do protection. From our CleanClassic™ formulation process to our “World-Famous” sunscreen fragrance, every element of our sunscreen is meticulously designed to enhance leisure and protection for long days by the pool.
Yes. We’re Leaping Bunny-certified and all of our products are Vegan.
All of our products are formulated without Oxybenzone, Octinoxate, Parabens and a slew of ingredients that we can't get behind. This is in-line with the reef-friendly guidance set by Hawaii & the Florida Keys, and we've taken extra care to avoid other ingredients with known issues.
Our sunscreens are manufactured in and formulated for the United States of America (USA).
Our Classic Lotion is designed specifically for long days by the pool, it uses a quality blend of reef-friendly chemical sunscreens that provide broad spectrum UV protection. It’s fast/easy to apply, super hydrating and obviously it smells of paradise! While our Mineral Lotion is a fragrance-free, luxury-grade, non-nano, zinc-based sunscreen formula that minimizes white-cast and the heavy, stiff, greasy experience common to other mineral sunscreens. Our Mineral Lotion is smooth and rubs-on quickly/easily with a remarkably clear finish. We believe it’s the only mineral sunscreen you'll look forward to reapplying!
Our Classic Lotion, Classic Spray, Mineral Lotion, & Lip Balms are all water resistant up to 80 minutes. All water resistant sunscreens are designed to stay-on for 80 minutes in the water, but you should reapply immediately after towel drying. It is our sincere hope that you’ll enjoy the experience of wearing our products so much that after a dip in the water and a satisfying head-to-toe towel-drying, the first thing you’ll look forward to doing next, is reapplying our sunscreen. Then perhaps a refreshing beverage.
Yes. At Vacation®, we take safety very seriously. We design all of our sunscreens in conformance with the guidance issued by both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Skin Cancer Foundation. Additionally, our sunscreens are tested by board certified dermatologists and reviewed by toxicologists. We acknowledge the concerns around sunscreen ingredients, but as a company we take science and the law very seriously. We constantly monitor scientific research and governmental policies from around the world to ensure that our products are employing the best in modern skincare science, including the use of ingredients that have well-established safety records to the extent that is legally possible.

The Classic Spray utilizes an advanced spray technology system that requires our cans to be pressurized. We are thus required to ship by land and cannot ship by air to distinguished locations such as Honolulu, Hawaii, Inverness, Scotland, or Antarctica. We apologize for the inconvenience, but it is the law.
“VACATION” by Vacation® contains a proprietary blend of fragrance, water, and alcohol. Alcohol is a regulated material that we are required to ship by land, and we cannot ship by air to distinguished locations such as Homer, Alaska, or Castletown, The Isle of Man, or Lotofoga, Samoa.

The simple answer is many wonderful years of consistent use of Vacation® brand sunscreen; the technical answer is… science. Ray Smith, the legend, is the result of a fictitious longitudinal study conducted by the Institute of Leisure Sciences (ILS). The goal of the study was to understand the effects of Vacation® brand sunscreen on human physical attractiveness. 57 years and roughly 630 gallons of Classic Lotion SPF 30 later Ray Smith, the most important person at Vacation Inc., and the most aesthetically-enhanced version of our favorite Jimmy Buffet impersonator, was born as we know him today. He's a treasure to us all. We're lucky to have him, and he deserves more credit for the company's ongoing success.

Such a profoundly philosophical question is due a thorough lecture on metaphysics. But we like to keep things simple here. So yes, Vacation® is a real brand developed by real people who are passionate about making sunscreen fun. This, of course, entails champagne-popping marketing campaigns, sun-soaked stories about our fabled headquarters in Miami, and a deep fascination with ‘80s summer culture. So we answer this question, with a question of our own: what even is real? To which we can firmly answer: Vacation® brand sunscreen. Yes.
Vacation Inc. owns the Vacation® brand, but both enterprises were co-created by the founder of Poolsuite/Poolside FM.
