New Island Tribe kids’ products come to light
Island Tribe launches 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 10h00 until 15h00 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. With the summer holidays fast approaching, it’s important to consider additional cover for clear car windows if you’re going away on holiday. While clear auto glass blocks almost all UVB radiation, it only blocks 21% of UVA radiation (which contributes to skin ageing).
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 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 4-hour water resistance.
Island Tribe products are available at pharmacies nationwide. Visit www.islandtribe.co.za for more information and join the conversations on Facebook and Instagram.
About Island Tribe Sub protection
The Island Tribe brand was launched in 1992 with the aim of providing waterproof sun protection to surfers and other water sport enthusiasts. The range consisted of one product only, the Island Tribe Clear Gel, which to this day has proved successful. The brand is now distributed in 25 countries worldwide.
Island Tribe sunscreens are researched and developed by leading sunscreen laboratories in both South Africa and Australia, alongside professionals in the industry, to ensure that the formulas that are developed are world-class. Contact us for sunscreen certification and results and our lab will gladly assist you with technical details and information.
Island Tribe is a clinical and heavily researched sun-protection brand that specialises in sport and lifestyle sunscreens. We are not talking about any regular sunscreen. Island Tribe formulas are designed with a variety of users in mind, such as outdoor enthusiasts, young and old alike. Tame The Sun™ with Island Tribe’s wide variety, from Daily Use sun protection to After Sun.
Island Tribe sunscreens are designed to give the user effective protection against both UVA and UVB rays. We’ve learnt that a water-based sunscreen for water use is not the best way to have a long-lasting water-resistant sunscreen – that’s why we have formulated a non-water-based sunscreen solution that should be applied before and after water sport.
Island Tribe is recognised by the CANSA Organisation as a prevention against skin cancer.
