In their first few months, babies are much more sensitive to sun exposure than adults and older children. Their skin contains little melanin, the pigment that gives color to skin, hair and eyes and provides some sun protection. You may be tempted to reach for the sunscreen, but The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends waiting until the baby is 6 months old before introducing sunscreen
The main sunscreen ingredient in this sunscreen is zinc clear xp (non nano): ZinClear® is an Ecocert-approved, reef-safe zinc oxide product offering broad spectrum UV protection which is ideal for a wide range of applications. It enables formulation of very safe mineral-based sunscreens providing high SPF, high transparency and low whiteness on the skin. It is used in low irritant or sensitive skin sunscreens, everyday moisturisers that provide SPF, 'all natural' and 'mineral only' sunscreens, for infant/children suncare products, nappy rash creams and balms, colour cosmetics, and lip balms.
This childrens sunscreen also contains red raspberry seed oil, which can absorb UVB and UVC sun rays
Clinically tested and concluded to be SPF 30 with broad spectrum coverage.
How to use:
The Paediatricians recommend using 2 milligrams of sunscreen per square centimeter (2mg/cm2) of skin. This is about 1oz for a full adult body (about a shot glass full) or about 1/3 of a teaspoon to cover your face. It's nearly impossible to actually measure and evenly apply sunscreen according to these guidelines, so we suggest applying a visibly whitening coat of sunscreen to all exposed skin and rubbing it in to reduce the whitening effect. To ensure that you have achieved full and even coverage, let this coat dry/sink in for 15-30 minutes and then reapply. Think of it as a base coat and finish coat.
To maintain maximum effectiveness, sunscreen should be reapplied at least every 2 hours and directly after extended swimming or sweating. For sensitive skin, apply a small amount of the product to test before full use. Keep out of eyes and keep off broken or unhealthy skin.
After care: In our quest to make the sunscreen the best protection , mineral sunscreens can be drying to skin. Wash thoroughly after a day in the sun and apply a moisturiser, facial balm or body butter to keep your skin supple.
Reward system for children: In an effort to encourage children of any age to apply sunscreen and be sun safe there is a reward card inside the packaging. When ever the child applies sunscreen they receive a star and when they finish the reward chart Sintra Naturals will plant a tree in their name and you will receive a certificate for your child.
Please email the picture of the reward chart with child's name to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange the tree certificate to be emailed in 4 weeks.
