Sometimes it is a problem with a specific product. I went to Panama in 2013 for 2 1/2 months. I didn't take enough sunscreen so I had to go shopping. First, they had whole isles like here, but it was expensive. Second, it did not contain zinc oxide which is what I've been led to believe will have the most protection. Third, I didn't want the kind that runs in your eyes when you sweat; I wanted it to be water proof when I was in the water, which was often.

I guess Panamanians just don't need the sun protection I do.
