We’ve all been there, and we’ve all witnessed it. Parents on vacation trying to get their children to stop playing for a moment so they can apply sunscreen to protect them from the sun. It can be a challenge, so when spray sunscreens first hit the market, parents saw convenience. Children hold their breath, and the adults spray away.
While spray sunscreens may be popular, especially among parents with squirmy kids, according to the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) they come with major health risks. Have you read the warnings on the back of most spray sunscreen bottles? They’re frightening. Due to the likelihood of inhaling chemicals, the FDA is currently investigating spray sunscreens to determine if the ingredients kids are accidentally inhaling or swallowing are harmful.
Another downside to spray sunscreens is you can’t measure how much is being applied, which often leads to inadequate and uneven coverage.
In addition to the FDA investigation, the Environmental Working Group’s recent assessment of sunscreens found that only 21% of those tested evaluated effectively. That is terrifying and is yet another reason why DermalYouth is passionate about educating the public on the importance of sun safety.
To help families protect their loved ones from the sun, we’ve developed the world’s first Children’s Daily Skincare System created specifically for young people — and it is approved for daily use by The Skin Cancer Foundation. All of DermalYouth’s products are FDA tested, Dermatologist & Pediatrician approved. Due to the health risks associated with spray sunscreens, all of our products have always come only in lotion form.
Help us spread the word to protect all types of skin from the sun’s damaging rays every single day. Check out our website for valuable suncare information. www.dermalyouth.com
