What is the best sunscreen for sensitive skin?

Many people struggle to find a sunscreen that is right for them, but it’s even harder for parents of those and those who are suffering from sensitive skin conditions, such as eczema.

We spoke to Rhiannon, mum to 18 month old Ozzy who struggled with finding a sunscreen that didn’t aggravate his delicate skin and cause his eczema to flare up, until she found SunSense.

Rhiannon said: “In just the past year we’ve tried 10 - 15 different sun care products, which became quite expensive and all of which caused a painful skin reaction. SunSense is the only product that doesn’t react with his skin - when we found it, it was as if all our prayers had been answered.

“When Ozzy has a reaction his skin doesn't react straight away, it usually takes a few hours before we start to see anything, but when it does, his face gets very red, and his ears and eyes swell. It almost looks as if he’s been sunburnt and can take a week for the reaction to settle down.

I feel awful when he has a reaction because he clearly feels uncomfortable and it’s very sore for him. I also feel really guilty, because I’m the one putting a product on him that his skin reacts to, but I also know I need to keep his skin protected from the sun.

“After speaking to pharmacists and looking online I was advised to give Ozzy Piriton for his skin reaction. I then started looking into what products other mums recommended in online forums and a lot of them had praised SunSense.

“I tried some of the SunSense Kids on Ozzy’s face and by the end of the day I knew that it was the perfect product for us because his skin didn't react at all, not even when he got in the bath.

“My advice to other mums would be to do your research and see if you can get some samples before buying products. SunSense was the only company to get back to me about receiving products - but it turns out they are the only sunscreen brand we need and I feel happy knowing he’s got such a high level of protection on his skin”
