What’s the Best Sunscreen for Kids?

February 05, 2021

 Kids and sunscreen… every parent and/or caregiver is familiar with the lifelong battle between the two. 

One of the main issues that kids often have is the fact that they have sensitive skin and can sunburn easily. They haven’t been on the earth for as long as adults have, meaning they haven’t built up as strong of defenses against the sun. Another problem is that kids are messy and extremely prone to getting sunblock in their eyes, whether it’s due to rubbing, sweating, or a simple slip of the hand. Some sunscreens come with a hearty stinging sensation if they get in the eyes (we’ve all been there - whether we’ve endured the pain ourselves or consoled a screaming child), and they can also irritate sensitive skin on the rest of the body. This can result in annoying and painful rashes. 

Issues with sunscreen aren’t just limited to the surface of the body. Did you know that some sunscreen chemicals have been found to enter the bloodstream? This can cause even more damage in smaller people (such as children) who absorb a proportionally higher amount of the substance through the skin. 

Because of all these pain points when it comes to sunscreen, it’s important to use something that’s not only effective for sun protection, but is also gentle on young users. Children should never have to miss out on (or suffer during) the family fun just because there’s not a sunblock for sensitive skin out there - a product that both suits and benefits them. And preferably reduces harm to the Earth as well - we’re talking eco friendly sunscreen.

Thanks to Protekt, there is a product out there. Protekt’s non nano zinc oxide sunscreen. This eco friendly sunscreen is both kind to the earth and kind to the body - it’s great sunscreen for sensitive skin. It’s definitely the best sunscreen for kids on the market. It goes on easily and washes off easily with soap and water, meaning that it can be used as an effective face sunscreen. It offers impressive sun protection and doesn’t irritate the skin. If it gets in the eyes, it won’t sting since it’s made of simple mineral ingredients and free of parabens and other harmful chemicals. 

Protekt offers this physical sunscreen for the face (physical meaning that it acts as a literal, physical shield between skin and the sun’s UV rays), for the whole family. It’s also great for adults who like to challenge themselves in the elements - whether it’s extreme hot or extreme cold. So, if you have kids, it’s nice to have one bottle that works for the whole family.
