WE have your whole Family Protected!

Baby Bum

We created Baby Bum using earth’s most treasured ingredients for our own precious little ones and friends with super sensitive skin. They love ’em, we love ’em, and we hope you love ’em too.

Original Sun Care

This is the stuff we use everyday. It’s the formula that started it all. People say it smells like summer. We like that. Whether we’re spending a lazy day at the beach or hangin’ out on the back porch, our Original formula is definitely our fav. Sunscreen Information facts Answers SPF UVB Sun Bum

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. Below is the approximate percentage of UVB rays blocked depending on SPF rating. The difference is suprisingly small. A higher SPF helps if you are fair skinned or have a history of skin cancer. Remember, no sunscreen blocks 100% of UV rays.

The main thing that affects protection level is applying it correctly. Dermatologists recommend using 3 tablespoons of sunscreen to protect your whole body. SPF ratings are significantly decreased if you don’t apply enough. Most people only apply 1/3 of the sunscreen they need. Make sure you use enough and don’t neglect hard to reach and easily forgotten places like your ears, feet and upper back.

Broad-spectrum sunscreen protects against the harmful effects of both UVA (aging rays) and UVB (burning rays). To be classified as offering broad-spectrum protection, a product needs to absorb or reflect at least 90% of the UV rays. All Sun Bum Sunscreens offer broad-spectrum coverage. UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply than UVB rays and are primarily responsible for premature skin aging and wrinkling. UVA rays have also been shown to cause skin damage at the cellular level. UVB rays damage the outer layers of the skin. They are the main cause of sun burn and play a key role in the development of skin cancer.
