With the 4th of July approaching fast, summer has officially been kicked into high gear. While you're enjoying the three summertime s&s (surf, sun, and sand), don't forget the sunscreen! During your prep for holiday barbeques and family beach trips, it's important to remember that sun care is the ultimate summertime essential. The Coppertone closet is brimming with sunscreen classics to protect your family from the sun's harmful rays this summer. See below for a few offerings:
- Coppertone Kids Tear-Free Lotion: Specially formulated to protect and keep children's skin soft and smooth. The ultra-gentle, tear-free formula won't sting or irritate eyes, perfect for summertime activities.
- Coppertone WaterBABIES Pure & Simple Lotion: The #1 pediatrician-recommended product, specially formulated to provide broad-spectrum protection for a baby's delicate skin. The gentle, moisturizing formula is essential for your water baby.
Additionally, Coppertone recently launched its second year of its Making the Sunscreen Grade
program to provide parents with the tools and resources needed to protect children from the sun.
Depending on where your child goes to school, the options for sun protection during recess and other outdoor activities may differ. Parents may not be aware of all the information available to them on this topic. That's why, the makers of CoppertoneÂ® provide parents with information, tools and tips on how to be a sun-savvy role model and navigate sun protection during the school day, at summer camp and year-round. Although you may be applying sunscreen to your child before school, summer camp or family fun, ideally it should be reapplied every two hours or after swimming, sweating or towel drying, especially during outdoor activities to avoid potentially risking unsafe sun exposure and sunburns. When it comes to protecting children from the sun's rays, knowledge is power. As role models for children, parents, school nurses, camp counselors, administrators, teachers and doctors can play a key role in instilling sun-smart habits in children by becoming sun savvy themselves.
I was sent some Coppertone for both kids and babies; which is perfect because Jace is 6 months and Sophia is 6 years old. I love that these are both tear free and have an SPF of 50. The higher the SPF, the higher the protection. With how dangerous sun rays are having a good protection for my children is important to me. As far as the scent goes it smells like your typical sunscreen, but not quite as strong. So it`s pretty close to fragrance free, but not 100% free of fragrance I guess is the best way to put it. The sunscreen lotion comes out of the bottle easily, and appears similar in texture and viscosity to your average chemical sunscreen lotion. Water Babies Pure & Simple sunscreen does take a little extra rubbing to apply, and is a tad "chalky" to spread onto your skin. Depending upon how much you rub, there may still be a tinge of a white, ghostly appearance, but this did not bother me. Water Babies Pure & Simple sunscreen dries on your skin after application, and does not leave a "sticky" or "greasy" feeling, as is the case with some physical block sunscreens. As far as having any dry skin, I did not notice this. Also, It was not obvious that Water Babies Pure & Simple sunscreen is water resistant, as is visually apparent with some of the other physical sun blocks I have tested. With other water resistant physical block sunscreens, water has beaded on our skin, which did not occur with Water Babies Pure & Simple sunscreen. I am not suggesting the sunscreen is not water resistant like it claims, but merely that I was unable to confirm their claims in any visual manner. This sunscreen has been tested by the EWG and they rate it well because it protects the skin like it is suppose to, many sunscreens do not. It does absorb, but it takes about 20 minutes. Overall I think both lotions are great. We followed the directions and while we did still tan, no burns occurred; and I`m the type to burn easily.
