Florida Factoid Friday

Miami Beach pharmacist Benjamin Green invented the first suntan cream
in 1944. He accomplished this development by cooking cocoa butter
in a granite coffee pot on his wife's stove.

Cool! I never thought about who invented it, but I never would've thought it was someone from here. Do you now the name he called it?

Why doesn't it surprise me that this was invented in Florida. I like the new header picture.

SwampAngel, it was Coppertone. I looked all over for a pic of the original label, but I reckon it was too un-PC.

Cedrorum, thanks!
Makes sense, doesn't it?
