Of course, it is always best to keep babies out of the sun as much as possible. However for times when that isn’t possible, we feel our sunscreen is the best alternative for your baby. Because we have no chemical UV-absorbers, synthetic preservatives, petroleum by-products or essential oils in our sunscreen it is ideal for sensitive young skin.
We just recommend for the first time you use it to try a test patch on your baby – this is good to do with any new product that you use on your baby, just to be cautious.
Soleo Organics was designed for sensitive skin as all potential irritants, such as chemical uv-absorbers, synthetic preservatives, artificial fragrances, petroleum by-products and essential oils have been excluded.
However, we always recommend people who tend to be allergy-prone to do a test patch first (as with any new products they are using).
Yes it is
The Soleo Organics formula has been tested for SPF, water resistance and broadspectrum protection. Tests showed that it was SPF30+ for up to 3 hours in the water and offered very good broad-spectrum protection. Each batch of sunscreen is then tested to confirm that it passes specification.
Standard microbiological and stability testing has also been conducted on the sunscreen.The shelf life of the sunscreen is 2 years.
It costs a lot more to manufacture Soleo Organics than regular sunscreens.
Organic and naturally sourced ingredients are very expensive, as is the specialised nanofine zinc oxide used. The Soleo Organics sunscreen formula can cost 4-6 times more than a common synthetic sunscreen.
The shelf life is 2 years
The main differences include
- The formula is now organic
- 3-hour water resistance
- Higher level of broadspectrum protection
- New nanofine zinc oxide used
- Neutral fragrance
- White colour
- Squeezable tube
The sunscreen does not contain any fragrances, so the overall scent is simply the combination of natural scents from the ingredients used.
Soleo’s Sunscreen is the first of its kind to be accredited by the National Health and Safety Council of Australia (NHSC), illustrating the high quality of our products. The NHSC is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that helps health and safety conscious consumers choose products that are right for them.
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. SPF numbers are an approximate indication of how much protection from the sun the product will provide for your skin.
For any exposure time an SPF30 sunscreen has approximately double the protection time of an SPF15 sunscreen.
ie. For an average person (skin burns after 10 minutes in the sun)
SPF30 = 300 minutes before burning
SPF15 = 150 minutes before burning
A sunscreen offers broadspectrum protection when it protects against UV-A and UV-B rays.
- UV-A rays cause premature ageing of the skin
- UV-B rays cause sunburn
In the past, UV-B rays were regarded as the main cause of skin cancer. However, the University of Sydney has shown that UV-A radiation plays a large role in causing gene mutations that can lead to skin cancer. Therefore it is vital that when using a sunscreen you check that it offers broad-spectrum protection.
