A superior sunscreen lotion for babies and children with ‘Anti-Stain After Wash’* technology. Soothes and protects sensitive skin reducing the risk of long-term skin damage.
Eucerin’s Advanced Spectral Technology offers very high UVA/UVB protection and HEVIS light defense. The sunscreen also supports skin’s own DNA repair mechanism.
UV light is the main cause of sunburn, but high-energy visible (HEVIS) light can also trigger free radicals that cause further stress to skin.
Eucerin Sensitive Protect Kids Sun Spray SPF50+ is sunscreen for children specially formulated to soothe sensitive skin and protect it from sunburn and long-term sun-induced damage. It is also suitable for atopic skin. The Advanced Spectral Technology combines broadband and photostable UVA/UVB filters1 for very high UV protection with Licochalcone A to neutralize free radicals caused by UV and HEVIS light.
The sunscreen spray for kids also includes Glycyrrhetinic Acid which supports skin’s own DNA repair mechanism. Unperfumed, and extra water-resistant, the formula also contains Eucerin’s `Anti-Stain After Wash’* technology.
Eucerin Sensitive Protect Kids Sun Spray SPF50+ is clinically and dermatologically proven to be suitable for children’s sensitive skin including skin with Atopic Dermatitis. It can be used on children of three years and older.
*Helps to reduce the intensity of sunscreen stains after washing.
(1) Meeting the high standards for UVA and UVB protection defined by Cosmetics Europe. The levels of UVA protection are higher than the EU recommendation.
Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good skin tolerability on children’s sensitive skin including skin with Atopic Dermatitis.
Your child’s skin will benefit from a high or very high protection sunscreen that has been specially formulated for their delicate young skin. Sunscreens are available in four different levels of protection: low (factor 6 to 10), medium (15 to 25), high (30 to 50) and very high (50+). The higher the protection factor the better skin is protected, and we recommend that you always apply high or very high protection sunscreens to young and delicate skin.
It is strongly advisable to keep young children out of direct sunlight, especially during its peak hours of intensity, and to use protective clothing. Apply sun protection thoroughly to any parts of the body that are exposed and reapply it generously every two hours. And remember that skin damage can occur even before sunburn is visible.
Children’s skin, like many of their organs, is still developing and so they are more sensitive to sunlight. Young skin is thinner than adult skin and its barrier function and self-protection mechanisms (especially melanin synthesis) are not fully developed. The surface area to volume ratio is also much higher in children’s skin.
Sun-induced skin damage incurred during childhood puts someone at a much higher risk of further skin damage in later life. You can read more in the effects of sun on children’s skin.
UVA rays penetrate the deeper layers of skin. They stimulate the production of free radicals in the skin which cause oxidative stress and can lead to indirect DNA damage (where the free radicals modify cellular DNA over time). UVA rays are most commonly associated with photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun). They can also trigger sun allergies such as Polymorphous Light Eruption (PLE). UVB rays can also provoke allergies, but to a lesser degree.
UVB rays provide the energy your skin needs to make Vitamin D and stimulate the production of melanin which is responsible for tanning. They don’t travel as deeply as UVA rays, penetrating only the outermost layers of skin, but they cause more immediate damage such as sunburn. UVB rays are directly absorbed by cellular DNA and can lead to skin diseases such as actinic keratosis and skin cancer.
The sunlight spectrum consists of UV, visible and infrared light. Visible sunlight can be detected by the human eye, while the others remain invisible. Part of this visible spectrum has a high energy level and is known as high-energy visible light. It is also referred to as HEVIS light, HEV Light, HEVL and sometimes ‘blue light’ or ‘blue violet light’.
Like UVA rays, HEVIS light penetrates the deeper layers of skin (the dermis) and can generate free radicals. These free radicals are one of the main causes of photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun).
Many modern sunscreens offer effective protection against UVA and UVB rays, but we recommend that you look out for products that also defend against the negative effects of HEVIS light. These products will give your child’s skin reliable protection from photoaging and, in the long run, reduce the risk of skin damage. You can read more in the effects of sun on children’s skin.
Eucerin Sensitive Protect Kids Sun Spray SPF50+ is suitable for use on children of three and older.
The Eucerin ‘Anti-Stain After Wash’ technology helps to reduce the intensity of sunscreen stains after washing.
The yellow stains that appear on clothes, especially cottons, after using sunscreen products are caused by UV filters. The washing process can make these stains worse rather than remove them: the iron and copper ions in water, when combined with very hot water and bleaching agents, can actually bind-in and intensify the stains.
Eucerin’s ‘Anti-Stain After Wash’ technology works in two ways. Firstly, it contains a an anti-redeposition agent that prevents so much of the filter from binding with the fabric in the first place. Secondly, it contains a complexing agent that binds with the ions in water so they are less able to intensify stains when fabrics are washed.
The terms are defined by Cosmetics Europe and our products follow their guidelines. To be defined as water-resistant a product needs to retain half of its SPF after 2 x 20-minute sessions in the water. To qualify as extra water-resistant a product must retain half of its SPF after 4 x 20-minute sessions in the water.
Choose a product that offers the right level of sun protection for your child’s skin. It should be specially formulated for sensitive young skin and appropriate for their age.
Use clothing wherever possible to protect young skin from the sun. For uncovered areas of skin it’s important to use sufficient product. For each of the numbered areas on the body diagram below we recommend you vary the number of sprays according to age:
The areas are:
1. Face and neck
2 & 3. Both arms
6 & 7. The top of your legs (front and back)
8 & 9. The bottom of your legs (front and back) plus your feet
10. Shoulders and upper back
11. Lower back
The pump can be held quite close to the body.
Ensure that all exposed areas get the protection they need. Some parts are easy to miss. Don’t forget behind the ears, the back of the neck, the back and shoulders as well as hands and feet, the backs of the arms and the areas at the edges of your child’s swimwear.
