July 23, 2010 - Biodegradable Sunscreens
Just returned from our vacation and were very pleased with your products. Unfortunately, I forgot to apply before going to the beach the first day - applied when we got there and got a tiny bit burned.( I did apply about 45 minutes prior to going out thereafter and have a great tan!). Used the Icy Relief Gel which was very helpful and love the opal oil and Kukui body silk! My skin looks very hydrated and even where I burned there is very little peeling.
Great products and awesome customer service; we'll be sure to spread the word! Thanks again for getting the products to us in time for our vacation!!

April 8, 2010 - Beach Colours Self Tanner
I don't know about you guys but I'm truly over baking in the sun trying to maintained a tan. I finally found the best sunless tanning lotion. The name of the product is Natural Beach Colours made by Caribbean Sol.....I promise you this is some goooood stuff and it is chemical free with a natural coco smell and leaves no streaks or that awful orangie look that most other products do.

April 05, 2010 - Shampoos
We just got back from your neck of the woods having vacationed at St. Pete's Beach. I will say that it could have been warmer. It was in the 50's while we were there. I want to thank you for providing my wife and I with a sample bottle of the shampoo. We both are very pleased with it and my wife says it makes her hair soft and silky. We will be adding the shampoo and conditioner to our order. Thank you again.

You sent me a sample which i think is absolutely terrific.I feel clean but does not dry out my skin. I would be interested in a volumizing shampoo as my hair is on the thin side. Hope this helps.

March 30, 2010 - Sport Grip Sunscreen
Your website states that this item is out of stock. When will this item be available? Thank you! PS We just got back from Mexico where we used your SPF 25 and we are hooked!!!! Love it. Can't imagine using any other. So pleased at the protection and the fact that it is good for the environment.
February 26, 2010 - Faces Only Moisturizer with SPF
I am in the lamp working trade and use a torch all day and was struggling to find a sunscreen that was gentle enough to use on my face everyday. My previous sunscreens would make my face itch and burn like crazy, and even more so once I really turned on the heat at work. I started using your Faces Only moisturizer with SPF and so far it's been amazing! My skin looks better and feels better, and it holds up nicely behind the torch. I love that your products are biodegradable and are not tested on animals. I also received some of your tropical mist shampoo, and I LOVE IT. My hair is already noticeably softer. I will surely be back for more. Thanks again for making such conscious products.
September 14, 2009 - SPF 8 Biodegradable Sunscreens
I saw your product on the Environmental Working Group website and then went to your website and read the testimonials. Well...everyone was right. My son, age 14, normally runs and screams when the tanning lotion comes out. Not with this one--he actually applied the lotion himself. We spend a lot of time in the water when we're at the beach and the only place I was burned was an area where I must have missed. My fair skinned daughter only used the SPF8 all week and never burned at all. And the smell wasn't an annoying, cloying smell. Just right.

August 18, 2009 - Kukui Body Silk Moisturizer & Natural Suntan Lotions
I must tell you that your product is terrific - I have recently developed an allergy to almost every skin product that I use - I tried your body silk and suntan lotion - I am now itch free -even my dermatologist hasn't been able to help me - I can't wait to tell him next month that I have solved my own problem - it is clearly the sun - even on cloudy days I cannot go out without sunscreen - most of the sunscreens also make me itch - I discovered your produce over 10 years ago when it was Virgin Sol - there had been a demo at the Marriott Hotel in Marco Island Florida - I normally use it only when I plan to be out gardening or sun bathing - I decided to try it for all day everyday use - it has solved my problem!!!!

I love these products! Bought them around the pool at the Marriott in Orlando - thought I was just buying the normal hoopla - but THEY ARE GREAT - I LOVE THEM!!

I am allergic to shampoo, all facial lotions and body lotions. The girl that runs the kiosk at the Marriott on Marco Island, FL gave me some of your products to try. Hallelujah! I can use them with no problems! I love the Faces Only. I no longer go around looking like I've been on a month long crying binge and I don't get sunburned. I use it all over. The Kukui Body Silk has been a lifesaver as well. I can use it on my face and I get compliments on how good my skin looks. (I'm 65) So thank you, thank you. Please don't ever change the formula for these products.
Thanks so much, Candles (From the website)

Hey Guys, First of all, I just want to tell you that I love your sunscreens. I bought a few of them a couple of months ago and I couldn't be hapier. I can't use chemical sunscreens (they irritate my skin) and most mineral sunscreens give you that "clown face" look. Your products smell great, blend well, and keep me protected. Thanks! I am curious about the facial moisturizer - that sounds like something I could use everyday. Can you notify me when it is back in stock?
Thanks again, Mark

Having spent 20 plus years in the pool and beach business and even had the self proclaimed title of tanning consultant, I guess you could say I'm obsessed with Suncare Products. Collecting and sampling different products has become a hobby for me. I found the products in an upscale resort in Puerto Rico about 5 years ago and although I still collect and sample various products it's the only one that I continually purchase and use for my family. Another longtime customer for life.

My children are allergic to most sun care products. We have tried numerous "natural" products and they break out. We came accross Caribbean Solutions and the search ended. I was so glad that I didn't have to glob it on for it to work. Being "thrifty", it is the best buy and doesn't cost me more than the vacation itself. My son tried doing a flip and failed and used the Icy Relief Gel to promote the healing process and no scars.
Thank you, Mooseman

Well, I have to say I wouldn't expect anything less.. I've used your products for years. (Natural Jade Oil, Onyx, Cocoa Shea, etc), but it wasn't until recently that I finally decided to start using sunscreen on certain areas of my body, on a more regular basis..Hey at least I'm making an effort now - Rome wasn't built in a day either. But either way, this is another job well done for Caribbean Solutions.
March 01, 2008
We have used all the Caribbean Solutions products for years. The SPF 8 is my favorite to use in the sun. Of course we use the SPF 25 for a full block at the start of the summer. The kids always use the Kid Kare SPF 25. Great coverage, great feel and smell and most importantly, IT WORKS! We first discovered when we were told we could not use sunscreen in a natural water park due to it killing the coral reefs. Logic says if it kills coral, what is it doing to our body? So we went green and never looked back. In addition to the sunscreens, we suggest the Kukui Body Silk and Icy Relief Gel.
Thanks again for safe sunning for our family.

My family has used Caribbean Solutions for many years. I have found that all of the products they produce are superior to the mass produced skin care lotions & sunscreens made by the major manufactures. I look forward to trying the new products they are continually developing. Icy is a miracle in a bottle. It not only works with all types of burns it works on insect bites & stings.Every summer I have countless people comment about the great tan that I have, using the Jade or the Onyx Oil daily with the Kukui Body Silk keeps my skin very healthy with an added glow. Living in Florida, with a pool we always have a supply of sunscreen for visitors. Our pool maintenance company has also made several comments as to how well the products don't clog the filters or gum up on the sides of the pool, as many other pools they maintain have to be chemically cleaned to remove the residue from tanning products. Many times if a guest tries the sunscreen they will comment even at a later date how sensational the products are. A great value for healthy wonderful skin. I cringe at the thought of all the chemical additives my family has used in the past. Being all natural is a big bonus. As long as I can order your products I will not purchase another label...Sold for Life.........

Hi Bruce, I wanted to thank you for delivering the sunscreen and lotion in time for our holiday vacation. My daughter who is 8 years old was able to wear sunscreen for the first time w/o a chemical allergic reaction. Thank you for the extra effort you made in researching the ingredients for me.
Sincerely, Michelle in NC.

Hi, I purchased your products at the Marriott on a trip to Orlando. The gentleman we purchased them from convinced me that I did not need the SPF 50 that I had next to my chair. I am fair skinned and freckled, so SPF 50 was my normal susscreen, but of course, it is hard to get that good golden brown tan with that amount of sunscreen. The SPF 25 has produced the most incredible natural tan that I have had in my life. I use it with the Onyx Oil on top for extra moisture and I am so happy with results. Your product is the greatest and I have tried them ALL! Keep up the great work.

Bruce, I just wanted to let you know that I had no problem with the sunscreen not being labeled eco-friendly or biodegradeable in Mexico. I also want to tell you what a WONDERFUL product you have. I used the SPF 25, then switched to the SPF 15. I DID NOT BURN nor PEEL and my skin feels great. I really like the fragrance too. A few people commented o the fragrance at the pool, so I showed them the bottle, told them it was biodegradable and that I was more than pleased with the lotion. A few people wrote your website address down.
I snorkled for about an hour each day and it really didn't come off in the water. Back home at the marina, I'm still using it and have introduced it to some of my friends. It took a little getting used to the product not working into the skin like the regular sunscreens, I had a slight sheen, but that's not a big deal. I tried a competitor's product, Mexitan SPF 8, didn't like the smell and I had little flecks of white on my skin after I applied it. Your Caribbean Solutions beats them hands down in my book. I'm so glad I found such a wonderful lotion. I'm going to tell Yareck's Natural Foods that it's a great product and to keep it in their supply.
Thanks, Lynn PA
PS: I also mentioned your lotion and web address in the trip report I wrote for the Unofficial Palladium Resort Site blog. People always have questions about eco-friendly sunscreen, where they can buy it and does it really work. YES!!!!!!!!

I just wanted to say that your sunblock for kids is great. My son is seven years old and every sunblock I've tried gave him a rash, I must have tried 10 different kinds and then my girlfriend was at a resort and purchased some there because she had forgot to bring some. My son was at her house one day and she asked me if she could put your sunblock on him because he was there for the day. I said to try it since it was the only kind she had that she had not tried on him. Well sure enough he didn't break out in a rash. I love it and and now I don't have to worry about him getting burned or breaking out in a rash. One of his friends from his baseball team is the same way and I gave his mother one of your bottles and her son also has not broken out. It's great stuff for my son who has very sensative skin.
I've been "borderline-tanorexic" for my entire life. Skin texture and softness and health though were always equal concerns.
An alligator, no matter how bronzed, is not that attractive!
So for 25 years I've sought out and used only tanning oils that are completely devoid of the dreaded "mineral oil / parrafin".
It's been "hit or miss". Olive oil works but you smell like a pizza… mink oil is nice but squeezing those minks is no fun for anyone....and sometimes in Mexico or Hawaii I'd get lucky and find pure palm or coconut oil.
When I discovered your products I knew I was "set for good"! Especially Brassia. Sure , it's somewhat expensive… but just reading the ingredients justifies WHY it carries a premium price.
We use it in the sun on our bodies, faces and hair - and given the fantastic and all natural blend of oils - everything just glows with moisture and radiance.
Keep up the good work and email me when you want me to test your next "beta" formula!

To Whom it May Concern,
Last week, I ordered your Kid Kare sun block on line. This is a very important product to me because my son is allergic to all other sun blocks. Faithfully, each year, our family goes to Disney World in Orlando, Fl. and this is where we will usually pick up our summer supply of your products. Unfortunately, this year we will not be going until August which forced us to order the product on line so we could get my son through the summer months. When we received the order, we had received the wrong item. I really panicked, knowing that my son had 3 baseball games that weekend, and we were to get 3 solid days of sun, heat and humidity. I called your 800# and spoke to a women, sadly I forget her name, and explained the situation. Needless to say, the correction was made and the right sun block was delivered to my house at 11am the next morning!
I am writing to you now to thank you, and to commend your employee on her understanding and hard work. Because of her efforts, my son was able to attend all 3 games, enjoy the sun, the pool, and all the other things he would not be able to enjoy without your sun block. Your line is truly amazing, and I am so happy we discovered it on one of our Florida trips. Before finding your products, my son struggled through the summer months. Thank you for your help, your products, and please commend your workers and tell them they are very special people.

I just completed my initial order and I want you to know how much I loved your products. I bought them in Mexico at the Westin. Normally, I would not spend that kind of money on tanning or skin products, but I must say I absolutely loved the results and truly got what I paid for. I will continue to indulge myself with your products!!!!! Thanks for your commitment and hard work.

I stumbled upon a ¾ used bottle of Jade Oil late in the summer of 2005 on the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan. I popped the cap and smelled it - mmm yum - I thought. The scent was luscious. I went to the water’s edge, rinsed the bottle off, and then applied some to my body. I have used a lot of suntan products in my life while visiting the beaches of Hawaii to Florida, and the Jade Oil has the best fragrance and the natural feel it gives is the best I have found.
I used up the entire “found” bottle and thank the heavens there was a toll free number to call on the back of the bottle! I called and re-ordered and have since been using the Faces Only product on my face and tender areas, as well as on my 6 year old, who no longer has problems scorching under and around his eyes, as he is in and under the water so much. Again, I have tried various other “sun” products on him and the results have never been as good as I now have using your products.
Thank you for being a wonderful part of my summer experience! I will tell all my girlfriends about you - but they will have to order their own!!
Suzanne F., Michigan - July 26, 2006
Well, I must say, I have been using your products for many years....
But, only recently did I discover the fact that Jade Oil is a miracle in a bottle for more than just your body; It is a miracle for your hair as well!!! It is quite interesting how I discovered this fact... I purchased a pricey hair product by a well-known manufacturer not too long ago. This product was made up of mostly olive oil according to the bottle... Well, to make a long story short, it did more for taming my frizz and restoring shine, than any previous product that I had used. But, I had run out and my schedule was not going to permit me to get by the salon to purchase more anytime soon...
Then, all of the sudden it dawned on me! My beloved Jade Oil just might do the trick, since its ingredients are ALL natural and it has always kept my skin looking fresh and healthy throughout the years. So, I tried it and I must say, I've never known what it was like to have truly healthy shiny hair, until now! The previous product only gave me a fraction of the results and for only a fraction of the time, in comparison to the results of Jade Oil!!!
So, I'm writing to you because after seeing the dramatic change in my hair, my boyfriend said that it would be a crime if I didn't write you and stress the importance of marketing Jade Oil also as a hair product... Because everybody out there like me deserves to discover that there is a hair god after all!!!!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!
