KINeSYS Awards and Accolades
Whether you’re hitting the pavement or a tricky trail, all athletes love the way KINeSYS sunscreens feel on their skin! Our oil-free, non-greasy formula is 80-minutes sweat resistant so you stay protected on any short or long-distance treks. Simply spray, swipe, and go!
Our one-of-a-kind sunscreens have been recognized by some of the best in the business including Runner’s World Magazine, Bicycling Magazine, Another Mother Runner, and Jonathan Levitt from For the Long Run Podcast. Here’s what they had to say.
Runner’s World Magazine Editors’ Choice - Best Sweat Resistant Sunscreen
KINeSYS SPF 50 Fragrance Free Spray Sunscreen has been recognized as an Editors’ Choice by Runner's World Magazine 5 years in a row. It’s an accolade that aligns with the incredible support and response we have received from the wider running community.
“With its fine-mist pump (no aerosols here), KINeSYS sprays on as a thin layer you can rub in, and a bottle seems to last forever. It’s been a favorite of ours for many years because it dries quickly and is completely unnoticeable when you’re on a run.”
- Runner’s World Editors
Bicycling Magazine -Best Sunscreen
Bicycling is the world’s leading cycling media brand, providing over 4 million magazine and online readers with unfiltered and authentic stories, advice, and reviews for riders. Various essential products are obsessively tested by Bicycling Magazine’s gear and fitness experts. That’s why we are ecstatic that Bicycling Magazine chose KINeSYS Natural Clear Zinc as their Best Sunscreen in the 2021 Fitness Awards.
“This 100 percent, mineral- based formula offers broad- spectrum protection, rubs in clear and isn’t full of stuff that’s bad for you or for nature. We also like that it smells great, thanks to natural peppermint and rosemary preservatives. The price is high, but the 2-ounce tub lasts a while.”

Another Mother Runner - Best Skincare Products
Worldwide community group, Another Runner Mother, named KINeSYS SPF 30 Clear Zinc as one of their favourite skincare and beauty products. ‘AMR Gears Up’ features products that are used and loved by AMR ambassadors, tried and tested as go-to options by women within the community.
“This natural zinc sunscreen, with 25% zinc oxide, goes on white so you can see where you put it, but then rubs in clear so it doesn’t make you look like you leaned against a freshly painted white wall by getting white marks all over your running gear! It even smells good.”

Jonathan Levitt - For the Long Run Podcast
During the month of May, Skin Cancer Awareness Month, KINeSYS Performance Sunscreen sponsored the ‘For the Long Run’ podcast, hosted by ultrarunner Jonathan Levitt. This was the perfect opportunity to reach out and encourage those in the running community to think ‘Sun Protection’.
“I love KINeSYS for their mission of not just providing a high-quality product but also providing education on why using it is so important, and I love working with the team!”
