Ingredients

Instructions

  • Over-exposure to the sun is dangerous.
  • Avoid intensive midday sun and extensive sun exposure as even sunscreens with high SPFs do not offer a 100% protection.
  • Keep babies & small children out of direct sunlight.
  • Keep children well covered, including sun hat, t-shirt and sun glasses and use sunscreens with high SPF.
  • 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.
  • Avoid contact with textiles and hard surfaces to prevent staining.

Frequently asked questions

What SPF sunscreen does my child need?

The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) extends the time it takes for the skin to burn by a certain factor. For example, a person who gets sunburnt after 30 minutes of sun exposure without sunscreen would not get sunburnt for 300 minutes using a sunscreen in high enough amounts with a sun protection factor of 30. However, it is best to only stay in the sun for up to 60% of this time, and remember that skin damage can occur even before sunburn is visible.

If you want a very high UVA/UVB protection sunscreen for children over 1 year old, try Eucerin Kids Sun Lotion SPF 50+. Do not expose babies or small children to direct sun light.

Is Eucerin Kids Sun Lotion Sensitive Protect SPF50+ suitable for young children?

Yes Eucerin Kids Sun Lotion Sensitive Protect SPF50+ is suitable for children over 1 year old.

Why are children more sensitive to sun light?

Children’s skin, like many of their organs, is still developing. The thickness of their epidermis is a fifth of that of an adult’s skin, while their overall surface area to volume ratio is much higher than that of an adult. Also, their skin barrier function and self-protection mechanisms (especially melanin synthesis) are not fully developed. Sun-induced skin damage in childhood puts them at a much higher risk of further skin damage in later life.

What is the difference between mineral and chemical UVA/UVB filters, and which one should I use?

Chemical filters are absorbed by the skin and transform UV rays into harmless innocuous warmth, whereas mineral filters remain on the surface of the skin and reflect and scatter UV rays that reach the surface of the skin. While chemical filters are generally considered to be safe, the use of mineral filters is advisable in case of intolerance towards chemical filters or for sun protection for babies and toddlers, whose skin is highly sensitive.

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 polymorphic light eruption (PLE), the so-called sun allergy. Short wave UVB (Ultraviolet B) rays, on the contrary, cause immediate 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.

Eucerin Sun Protection Superior sun protection for your skin´s individual needs

   

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

The innovative Advanced Spectral Technology combines broadband and photostable UVA and UVB filters
1 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 acne-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 aging, the Photoaging products with short- and long-chain Hyaluronic Acid will visible reduce the signs of skin aging.
  • If you are prone to hyperpigmentation, Eucerin Sun Fluid Pigment Control SPF 50+ protects skin from sun-induced hyperpigmentation and helps to reduce dark spots and prevent their re-appearance.
  • 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. Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light Sensitive Protect, Eucerin Sun Spray Sensitive Protect, Eucerin Sun Spray Transparent Sensitive Protect and Eucerin Sun Spray Transparent Dry Touch do not contain Glycyrrhetinic Acid.
