La Roche Posay Anthelios Kids Lotion SPF 50+
Available from Dis-Chem for R270 for 100ml
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Kids Lotion has been specially formulated to protect children’s skin which is thinner and more vulnerable to damaging UV rays. It offers high tolerance sun protection for babies and children and it leaves a light film on the skin to help mothers identify unprotected uncovered areas.
Oh-Lief Natural Sunscreen SPF 30
Available online from www.faithful-to-nature.co.za for R249 for 100ml
This CANSA-approved SPF 30 mineral sunscreen is made using non-nano zinc oxide, a natural soft mineral that sits on the skin without sinking in. That means the Oh-Lief sunscreen creates a physical “sun-blocking” barrier, protecting your skin without absorbing into your bloodstream. This fragrance-free, water resistant sunblock is ideal for use all over your body.
