I was looking up an Ergodyne accessory when I came across their line of Krew’d sunscreen products.
Ergodyne Krew’d is apparently a line of sunscreen products specially marketed towards outdoor workers. It’s sunscreen for pros.
It seems that the line came out in 2021, but this was the first I’ve heard of it. There also don’t seem to be many user reviews yet.
Ergodyne says that:
Outdoor workers are 3.5 times more likely to develop skin cancer, a statistic alarming enough for OSHA to classify UV as a carcinogen.
Their Krew’d products are all broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) water-resistant “sport” sunscreen with an SPF 50 rating. It’s said to be dermatologist-tested and FDA-approved.
Ergodyne also says that their Krew’d formulas are lightweight, non-greasy, quick to absorb, and free of paraben, phthalates, and octinoxate/oxybenzone.
They also say that it’s water and sweat resistant for 80 minutes.
Ergodyne offers their Krew’d sunscreen in stick, spray, and lotion formats.
The lotion is available in standard, pump dispenser, and mini travel pack sizes.
Questions for Readers
It’s likely that Ergodyne contracted with a sunscreen OEM to produce Krew’d for them, but it’s unclear if Krew’d is somehow customized for outdoor pros. Or, it could just be a repackaged sports-type sunscreen.
I don’t want to get into the pros and cons of wearing sunscreen. If you choose to wear sunscreen, what’s your take on this?
Going by Amazon’s pricing, some of the Ergodyne Krew’d products are competitively priced (such as the stick), and others are higher priced than consumer brands (such as the lotion).
Might Ergodyne Krew’d be worth the premium over everyday consumer brands?
Would you buy this over say Banana Boat’s SPF 50 “Sport Ultra” sunscreen?
