What Happened to No-ad Sunscreen?

The 21st century has proved to be a skin cancer-dominated era which explains the many questions regarding what happened to no-ad sunscreen. This lotion has slowly been disappearing from our stores after it was discontinued by the manufacturer about a year ago.

Today it will take you a lot of time and effort to get this product as it’s only available in major online stores such as Amazon and Walmart. Moreover, we can’t tell how long these stores will have the No-ad sunscreen.

What Happened to No-ad Sunscreen?

No-ad sunscreen is a lightweight, non-greasy, and fast-drying lotion that helps protect against excessive sunshine. With a great history of no advertisements, manufacturers of this product were able to concentrate on offering the best lotion at a cheaper cost. Unfortunately, they are not in a position to manufacture the lotion at the moment.  

So, what will you do when your no-ad sunscreen bottle is finished? Below we provide some alternatives that you can comfortably opt for when the time comes.

Avoid Midday Sun
