A sunscreen for your child which is safe and environmentally friendly. It also helps in supporting a social cause. Protecting young children from harmful UV radiation is important. Not only for avoiding immediate consequences like painful sunburns, but also for minimising skin cancer risk later in life.
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends waiting until the baby is 6 months old before introducing sunscreen. The best ways to keep infants sun safe are with shade as well as clothing. (Even though Sintra Naturals sunscreen is safe from birth). Once your baby is 6 months old, it’s time to introduce sunscreen. This doesn’t mean forgetting all the other sun protection methods you’ve been using with your baby. As your baby gets older and you spend more time outdoors, sunscreen will help protect exposed skin. Especially in places like the hands and face. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen. This means it protects against UVA and UVB rays. Aim for a suncream with an SPF of 30 or higher.
How much sunscreen to use:
Paediatricians recommend sunscreen’s SPF using 2 milligrams of sunscreen per square centimetre (2mg/cm2) of skin. Sintra Naturals suggest applying a visibly whitening coat of sunscreen to all exposed skin. To ensure that you have achieved full and even coverage. Let this coat dry for 15-30 minutes and then also reapply. Think of it as a base coat and finish coat. Keep out of eyes and keep off broken or unhealthy skin.
