Medea's SPF 5000 Sunscreen

Medea's Sunscreen is a brand of sunscreen used by demigods, and is only for magical and/or demigod uses.


In the myths, Medea, the sorceress, gave this to the original Jason, though at the time it was not known as "sunscreen," it was called magical lotion.

Annabeth Chase suggests using the sunscreen to shield against the fire of the Colchis Bulls, saying that if a person does not use this while fighting them, they will get burned to a crisp. She then realizes that she left it at home.

When Leo Valdez tells Medea that he does not need fire protection, the latter wonders how since he does not seem to be wearing her trademark sunscreen.


When SPF 50,000 is used, it makes the user invulnerable to certain types of fire, like the Colchis Bull's fire and other types as well. It is used by demigods when going on quests.


  • One type of Medea's sunscreen is coconut scented.
