Hawaiian Tropic - summer in a bottle! In 1969, the first bottle of Hawaiian Tropic was made with its unmistakable coconut scent and tropical ingredients. All Hawaiian Tropics products are dermatologically tested, have UVA and UVB protection and are water resistant for up to 80 minutes. Hawaiian Tropics products with SPF 15 or higher are recommended by the International Skin Cancer Foundation. Their seal is an established symbol of safe and effective sun protection.
