UV rays are also present in shady places. So the same thing applies here: Use a sunscreen! Avoid the midday sun and never expose babies and children to direct sunlight.

Besides a high SPF sunscreen product, babies and children should also wear suitable protective clothing to guard against dangerous sunlight, especially on the head and upper body.

  • Shake the sunscreen well before use!
  • Apply sunscreen generously before sunbathing and repeatedly during the day, especially when sweating or after being in the water.
  • Smaller application quantities reduce the level of protection.
  • Even sunscreens with a high sun protection factor do not offer 100% protection against UV radiation.
  • UV protection cannot be increased by multiple applications.
  • Avoid direct contact with textiles (staining possible).
  • Excessive sunbathing is a serious health hazard!
  • Avoid contact with eyes. 

The mineral sun protection filter is developed by lavera itself. The formulations are routinely improved and adapted according to the latest research. The lavera sunscreen products use titanium dioxide and zinc oxide for protection.The principle is simple and has been taken from nature. Just like an elephant throws sand - i.e. minerals - over its skin to protect it from UV rays, the sun protection factors lie on the skin and reflect the sun's rays.

Synthetic sun protection & sun filter: They contain synthetic factors like oxybenzone, octinoxate, phenylbezimidazoles. These bond with the oils in the skin and dissipate the heat energy through the skin.
