How to Choose the Right Sun Protection for Sensitive Skin

Finding the perfect sun protection for children with sensitive skin can be a daunting task for parents. Navigating the countless products on the shelves can be overwhelming, but knowing what to look for is vital to keeping your little one's skin protected and happy. At Childs Farm, we understand the importance of gentle yet effective sun protection, and we're here to help make that choice easier for you.

It’s important to note that no SPF can provide 100% protection from UV radiation, please always follow guidance on instructions for use. For more information, read our guide to UVA and UVB.

Understanding Sensitive Skin and Sun Protection

Delicate skin is prone to irritation from environmental elements, so it's important to select sunscreens designed specifically for sensitive skin. Childs Farm sun products undergo testing to ensure that are suitable for sensitive skin and also safe for people that may be prone to eczema - they are also dermatologist and paediatrician approved.

The Importance of SPF and Broad-Spectrum Protection

Picking the right sun protection isn't merely about finding the highest possible SPF; it's also just as important to choose a sunscreen that provides all-encompassing (ninja level) defence against both UVA and UVB rays. UVA beams can induce untimely skin maturing, while UVB beams are the chief culprits of sunburn. Childs Farm sun products offer broad spectrum SPF 50+ protection and are highly effective at protecting delicate skin from both types of harmful rays.

How to Test Sun Protection Products on Sensitive Skin

Before applying any sun protection product on your child's entire body, it's essential to perform a patch test. We would recommend applying a small amount of the product either behind the ear or on the inside of the upper arm and leaving this for 24 hours before first use to make sure there are no issues. Do not patch test on skin that is already irritated. If after 24 hours there is no irritation to the skin, you can begin using the products.
