A BRAND behind a “miracle” eczema remedy has now launched a suncream for kids with sensitive skin.
The £12 suncream is SPF50+ and comes in both spray and roll-on formulas and is aimed at kids who suffer from sensitive skin in the warmer months – but is also suitable for adults.

Brand Child Farm have previously been hailed for their moisturisers by eczema sufferers – with the company selling more than one bottle of its baby cream per minute since the product went viral.
Paige Sweeney, a 23-year-old mum from Nottingham, used the product on her three-year-old daughter Evie-Rae.
She said; “I’ve tried everything in an attempt to help Evie-Rae. She has had eczema since she was born.
“Her eczema was so painful that she didn’t sleep through the night until she was two. She was constantly scratching and bleeding.
“I saw the baby moisturiser on the shelf in Boots and decided to give it a go. Within a matter of days I could see her skin starting to clear up. I couldn’t believe it. The NHS could save a fortune if they put it on prescription.”
Since Paige’s story emerged, hundreds of parents have shared similar stories.
The new Childs Farm suncream is suitable for children six months and up and is also dermatologist and paediatrician approved as suitable for sensitive and also eczema-prone skin.
Childs Farm’s consultant dermatologist Dr Jennifer Crawley is urging parents to get out of the mindset that suncream is just for holidays abroad and to understand just how damaging UV rays can be to young people.
She added: “Many parents whose children suffer with eczema or sensitivity are nervous about letting them out in the sunshine, but they shouldn’t have to miss out.
“It’s important for parents to use a sun protection that has a high SPF of 50+, protects the skin against both UVA and UVB rays, and is specifically suitable for children who suffer from those skin conditions.
“Parents also need to ensure they apply an adequate amount of suncream on their children to protect their skin.
“I recommend at least two teaspoons for the head and neck area and two tablespoons for the body. But you can’t apply too much, so use it liberally.
“Lots of parents apply suncream to their children twice during the day as they are aware it does wear off, and while this is a good start, suncream really does need applied more than twice, particularly on really hot days.”
The cream has already had good reviews online – with many praising the sun protection as great for all children.
One said: “A little of this goes a really long way. My little boy is very blond and fair skinned and this totally gave him protection we had no sun burn at all, which is what you want from a sun tan lotion.
“This is definitely the best suntan lotion I have ever used on my little boy and will definitely buy this again.”

Another added that they’d always used the suncream, even without sensitive skin, they said: “We have always used the suncream and this one is unfragranced which is better for sensitive skin.
“It still has the same principals of the previous suncream that a little goes a long way.
“The water coating on the face and body provides satisfaction knowing that children are protected in the sunny weather.”
