Protect your children from sunburn

Island Tribe has launched the Kids Light Lotion SPF 50, and Kids Light Lotion Trigger Spray SPF 50, two great new additions to the popular kids’ range of sunscreen protection products. Ideal for everyday outdoor and beach use, both products offer a light feeling and a high UVA/UVB protection ratio.

The fact that just one blistering sunburn in childhood or adolescence more than doubles a person’s chances of developing melanoma later in life is enough reason to acquire quality, high-protection sunscreen for your children.

Take care to plan daily activities to ensure that children are well protected. Special care should be taken from 10am to 3pm when ultraviolet (UV) radiation of the sun is at its most intense. Other sun protection measures include cool, loose-fitting clothes, and broad-brimmed hats.

Sun exposure among children is largely dependent on the discretion of adult care providers. Protecting children from excessive sun exposure and sunburn today, is future proofing them against skin cancers in years to come.

Be sure to apply a sunscreen bearing the CANSA (Cancer Association of South Africa) Seal of Recognition (CSOR), like the new Island Tribe Kids Light Lotion SPF 50, and NEW Kids Light Lotion Trigger Spray SPF 50, which are non-irritating and dermatologist-tested. Both products are fragrance-free, and offer four-hour water resistance.

Island Tribe products are available at pharmacies nationwide.
