What is Nivea Sun Kids Moisturising Sun Lotion?
Nivea Kids Sun Moisturising Lotion is a highly effective form of protection for children that will protect the skin from potentially harmful UVA and UVB rays. This formula will absorb into the skin and protect from potential skin allergies and sunburn and long-term damage to the skin. This lotion is water resistant.
How does this sun lotion work?
Many types of sun lotion contain both organic and inorganic ingredients that work to protect the skin. The inorganic ingredients, namely a number of chemicals, are able to reflect the harmful UV rays away from the skin. The organic ingredients will absorb the rays before they can do any damage to the skin. Different lotions will offer different levels of protection. The SPF rating refers to the UVB rays which are responsible for sunburn. The number refers to the level of protection and the time it takes to get sunburn. The UVA rating is out of stars in most cases and more stars equal better protection. It is important that both are considered and not just one of them.
Who is this Nivea Kids Lotion suitable for?
This lotion is suitable for children who will be out in the sun and need protection from UV rays. This high level of protection can also be used by adults as well should they want to use it. It should not be used by anyone who is allergic to any of the ingredients that are contained in the lotion. If you are using any skin treatment, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using.
How should Nivea Sun Kids Moisturising Sun Lotion be used?
This lotion should be applied before going out into the sun. Apply on the skin and then let it dry, before reapplying to ensure that the skin has been covered properly. The lotion should be reapplied often, such as after getting out of the swimming pool and sweating. Keep babies and young children out of direct sunlight, and avoid intense sunlight from 11am-3pm. Wear protective clothing and ensure exposed skin is sufficiently protected.
Are there any side effects?
Any side effect of using this lotion is most likely to be caused by an allergic reaction. If you notice any side effect, stop using and speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist as soon as possible.
