How have we made children's sunscreen safer and more environmentally friendly?

What do parents need to know about a healthy child's complexion?

Sunlight is like medicine for a child's body. But like any medicine, it should be taken in moderation, because too much ultraviolet light is dangerous for immature baby skin. The protection of children is not just necessary, it is mandatory.

What do parents need to know about a healthy child's complexion?

In infancy and childhood, sunlight is the only reliable source of vitamin D. Ultraviolet rays are involved in the synthesis of the vitamin, which is responsible for the strength of bones and teeth. Sun exposure also has an excellent psychological effect. Under the influence of light, the child's body produces endorphins - the "hormone of happiness", and antibodies in the blood increase significantly, which increases the body's resistance to infectious and viral diseases.

However, a number of negative effects caused by the sun are known, which can lead to serious skin damage. Sunburn is the outward sign of increased melanin secretion in the body. Melanin absorbs most of the sun's radiation, thus preventing damage to the deeper layers of the skin. The high dose of the sun and the long stay outdoors during the summer days deactivate this protective mechanism.

Children's skin is especially delicate and thin, and the processes of melanin production in it are imperfect, so sun exposure is extremely dangerous! The smaller the child, the shorter it should stay under the rays:

  • Children under 1 year of age should not be exposed to direct sunlight.
  • Children under 3 years of age should not be exposed to direct sunlight without a light T-shirt and hat.
  • It is important to know that the skin of teenagers during puberty, when hormones are raging, is also extremely sensitive to light.

Excessive sun exposure during childhood increases the risk of skin cancer in the future and can cause serious damage to the eyes, according to the findings of the World Health Organization and recommends

The game of the sun for children is walking on a rope for the parent - he must be able to balance perfectly, and can only trust a proven sunscreen product.

To support parents in their desire to provide the safest and healthiest protection for their children, we have improved the formula of the children's sunscreen lotion "Sun Like", with a very high factor SPF 50+. The cosmetic product is also the face of the new mission of the Sun Like brand for a responsible attitude towards human health and the purity of nature. The lotion has an improved formula and is in a new climate-neutral packaging.

We used the best scientific achievements in the field of children's cosmetics and invested them in a completely NEW FORMULA with gentle, broad-spectrum UVA + UVB filters, which act immediately after application and are specially designed for the needs of immature children's skin. They reflect light like a mirror and act on the surface of the skin without penetrating deep. The new filters provide an immediate, safe, secure and very high degree of protection.

The texture of the children's sunscreen lotion is enriched with Beta Carotene and Vitamin E, it not only protects but also nourishes the skin. Beta Carotene is a provitamin and a source of natural vitamin A, it is also a powerful antioxidant that helps for a good, even complexion. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that provides extremely important hydration for children's skin. It helps retain moisture, retains collagen and elastin, and keeps skin nourished and supple.

The new formula does not contain parabens, it is free of octocrylene and homosalate - filters that, according to recent studies by the European Commission, are not safe for the body.

We believe that small actions lead to big changes. Now our goal is to look for solutions for products and packaging produced with less carbon emissions. The children's sunscreen lotion is in a new, climate-neutralized package. The Green Leaf lotion tube is made of 100% recyclable materials that reduce the negative impact on the environment. And the innovative eco slim cap is made with 50% less plastic than standard caps. The materials with which the children's lotion is created are completely recyclable, ready to be reused.

Climate-neutral packaging is our commitment to the carbon footprint left by Sun Like products. We created children's sunscreen cosmetics with responsibility for the climate and with a view to the future of our children. The sunscreen from the series is marked with pictograms, which urge you to collect the Sun Like packages separately - put them for recycling in the yellow container.

The mission of our brand is "Think Green - Think Safe" - to be healthy and responsible to leave a cleaner, greener and safer planet for our children.

Recommendations for healthy titled children's tan:

  • Apply the exposed parts of the body - face, nose, forehead, chin, elbows, legs - with the children's sunscreen lotion "Sun Like". Do this every two hours or after getting out of the water.
  • "Stay in the shade." Thus burns are excluded and melanin is still produced, bronzing the skin in a pleasant golden color.
  • Go out with the children in the sun only in the morning and evening - before 11 and after 17 hours, when the rays do not fall vertically.
  • Sweat is a natural protection against sunburn. It contains urocanoic acid, which intensively absorbs UV radiation.
  • It is not recommended for a wet child to run on the beach. Water droplets and salt crystals act as small lenses that enhance the effects of the sun and this can lead to severe burns.
  • Children (and adults) should eat more foods containing beta-carotene: carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, apricots and spinach. Beta-carotene strengthens the body and protects it from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays.
  • Sun exposure dehydrates the body, offer the child constant water or juice.
