Ingredients

Instructions

  • Avoid contact with the eyes.
  • Do not use for small children.
  • Apply generously before sun exposure & reapply frequently, especially after swimming, toweling and sweating to maintain the original protection. Insufficient quantity of sunscreen applied reduces the protection effect.
  • Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product.
  • Avoid intensive midday sun and extensive sun exposure as even sunscreens with high SPFs do not offer a 100% protection.
  • Avoid contact with textiles and hard surfaces to prevent staining.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need a SPF sunscreen?

Sun Protection Factor (SPF) enhances your own natural level of protection, extending the time it takes for the skin to burn. However, it is best to limit sun exposure and remember that skin damage can occur even before sunburn is visible. Also it is important to remember that no sun protection lotion can give 100% protection.

Is Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF 50 suitable for young children?

Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF 50 was specifically developed for adults. Alternatively, for children over 1 year old try Eucerin Kids Sun Spray SPF 50+.

What is the difference between mineral and chemical UVA/UVB filters?

Chemical filters are absorbed by the skin and transform UV rays into harmless warmth, whereas mineral filters remain on the surface of the skin and reflect and scatter UV rays that reach the surface of the skin. Most modern sun protection formulas use a combination of both for effective protection.

What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays?

Long wave UVA (Ultraviolet A) rays emitted by the sun penetrate deeply into the skin and are the originating factor of oxidative stress in the skin. They play a greater role in long-term sun damage and are a major cause of skin ageing and skin cancer. In addition, UVA rays may trigger sensitive reactions such as polymorphic light eruption (PLE). Short wave UVB (Ultraviolet B) rays, on the contrary, cause more visible damage to the skin, leading to what we usually refer to as sunburn. It penetrates the skin less deeply than UVA but is the main responsibility for cellular DNA damage.

What product can I use for soothing skin that shows signs of sunburn?

Although sun burn should be avoided, if it does occur we recommend Eucerin After Sun Lotion. If you have any signs of sunburn you should avoid any further sun exposure until any reddening disappears. In severe cases of sun burn or if you also have any other symptoms, you should consult a doctor or pharmacist.

Eucerin Sun Superior sun protection tailored to skin conditions

Eucerin Sun products offer comprehensive protection against sun-induced skin damage.

The innovative Advanced Spectral Technology combines broadband and photostable UVA/UVB filters¹ for reliable UV protection with antioxidant Licochalcone A for high-energy visible (HEVIS) light defense. Glycyrrhetinic Acid provides additional DNA protection.²

The superior sun protection range includes products that are tailored to individual skin needs and contain active ingredients for specific skin conditions:

 - If your skin is oily and/or blemish-prone, the formula containing sebum-regulating Oil Control Technology with lipid-absorbing pigments leaves an immediate dry touch finish and has a long-lasting anti-shine effect.

 - If your primary skin concern is premature ageing, the Photoageing products with short- and long-chain Hyaluronic Acid will visible reduce the signs of skin ageing.

- If your skin is prone to sun allergies, the Sun Protection and After Sun formulas with Alpha-Glucosylrutin will help to prevent sun-induced allergies such as PLE.

The range also includes Eucerin Kids Sun products (which have been specially formulated to soothe and protect your child’s sensitive and delicate skin) as well as both adult and children’s products that are suitable for atopic skin. 

Eucerin Sun products are available in a range of medium, high and very high SPFs. All are clinically and dermatologically proven to be both highly effective and well tolerated by sensitive skin.

1  Meeting the highest standards for UVA and UVB protection as defined by Cosmetics Europe.  The levels of UVA protection are higher than the EU requirement. 
2  Eucerin Kids Mineral Sun Lotion does not include Advanced Spectral Technology but uses clinically proven non-chemical filters.
