Dermatologists and paediatricians are clear: children under the age of 3 years should never be directly exposed to the sun. The skin of babies is much more sensitive to the sun and UVA and UVB rays than that of adults. In particular, babies need very high protection that is gentle on their delicate skin.
Protect your children from the sun.
Direct sun exposure is broadly discouraged by paediatricians and dermatologists; that said, it is just as important to protect your children in the event of indirect sun exposure.
50 to 80% of UV-related damage occurs during childhood and adolescence*.
It is therefore essential to teach children, including young children, good practices in terms of sun protection.

Anthelios Kids Spray Sunscreen SPF50+ - Very high protection specifically designed for babies, in the event of indirect sun exposure.
The new formula of Anthelios Kids Spray Sunscreen SPF 50 is meant to be highly minimalist in order to respect the fragile skin of babies while offering very high UVB and UVA protection, without compromising on tolerance, with just the right amount of ingredients, which have been rigorously selected for their safety.
With its SPF 50+ and its very high UVA protection, twice as strict as the European standards that define very high protection suncare, Anthelios Dermo-Pediatrics has been specifically formulated to meet the skin needs of babies aged 6 months and older in the event of indirect sun exposure. Enriched with shea butter of natural origin, its moisturising "cocoon" texture soothes and strengthens the skin barrier of babies. It can be applied at any time of day on "uncovered" areas of the skin, during outdoor activities.
Anthelios Kids Spray Sunscreen leaves a light white film on baby skin in order to help mums quickly spot unprotected uncovered areas.
Tested under paediatric and dermatological control.
