Little Sleepy Head Sunscreen Helps Parents Protect Kids from Melanoma Later in Life

Little Sleepy Head’s safe and gentle sunscreen helps parents avoid products with dubious ingredients and formats while suiting an effective strategy to protect kids against the impact of UV.

Little Sleepy Head took great care in designing its sunscreen to ensure the best possible use in protecting kids against UV rays while avoiding the mistakes of many other brands in this market.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) released a list of the worst characteristics of sunscreen for kids on one of its websites, Healthy Child Healthy World. This helpful post can guide parents away from some of the more problematic issues in sunscreen products for babies and kids.

At the same time, it helps to illustrate the extent to which Little Sleepy Head went in order to help parents protect their kids from the sun and, as a result, from the development of melanoma (skin cancer) later in life.

The EWG advised parents to avoid spray sunscreens as those products frequently lead to uneven coverage and protection. It cautioned parents not to use products with SPF values higher than 50 as they increase the risk of problems without providing any additional meaningful benefit – that claim has been supported by the FDA. It advised parents to skip products that contain oxybenzone, which has been linked with hormone disruptions, and retinyl palmitate, which is connected to further damage to skin following sun exposure.

The Little Sleepy Head Daily Rehydrating Sunscreen is sold in a tube of lotion that is easy to apply in an even layer on even the squirmiest child. It provides an SPF protection of 30+ which both the EWG and the FDA have identified as being perfectly adequate even for individuals with pale skin that burns easily. Its active ingredients include Octinoxate, Homosalate, Octisalate and Avobenzone, none of which were identified on the EWG avoidance list. Furthermore, this product includes a number of soothing and moisturizing botanical ingredients to support the skin’s healthy look and feeling.

While Little Sleepy Head always encourages additional sun protection such as covering up with the right clothing, sunglasses, wide brimmed hats and simply sitting in the shade, this sunscreen is meant for kids – and adults for that matter – even when they have sensitive skin. It is well tolerated by individuals with rosacea, lupus, acne and other skin conditions.
