Kidsskin spf 50+ Sunscreen

May 24, 2018 / Murray Steward

Kidsskin Spf50+ Suncream – a major new advance in sunscreen technology from Extreme New Zealand. Kidsskin is Ultra Protection in a new SPF 50+ formulation demanded by the highest sun protection standards in the World. Kidsskin is an organic formulation, made to exceptional standards. Demanding new sunscreen standards by the authorities in New Zealand and Australia, especially in the UVA range of the spectrum, has produced what is probably the finest protection for children, ever.

New Zealand and Australia requires children to carry sunscreen always. It must be accessible, useable and both kid proof and action proof. It’s why Kidsskin is the standard (compulsory) choice of over 250 pre-schools in New Zealand and is the most popular sunscreen cream there amongst children of all ages.

For kids this sunscreen cream had to be highly sweat resistant, and naturally very highly water resistant. (We cannot claim waterproof – neither can watch makers.)  It had to be broad spectrum, with both UVA and UVB protection (highly protective Kidsskin has an extremely high sun protection factor (SPF) of over 65), and it had to exceed all current world standards including the severe American FDA. It had to be kid friendly – no stinging eyes, no white patches, no visible signs – it had to smell good, rub in easily, and be safe to use. Kidsskin is all of these. After independent laboratory testing in Australia, Kidsskin can claim to have Very High UVA protection, Very High UVB protection, and very high water resistance.

Kidsskin is paraben free, non-allergenic, PABA free, gluten free, nano-particle free, non-sticky, non-greasy instantly absorbed and made from the latest and safest organic materials in the world. It contains no micro or nano-particles, is safe for all skin types and completely non-reactive. Kidsskin contains pro-active Manuka Honey UMF 18+, renowned for its antiseptic and healing properties, and Aloe Vera; both known anti-inflammatories and effective moisturisers. It’s great for their skin, and your total peace of mind.

Extreme sunshine and UVA/UVB penetrating rays, and the high rates of skin cancer in the Southern Hemisphere requires sun creams that meet the demanding protection needed. From the company that produced the best-selling Surfersskin (now used on all UK beaches by the RNLI), and the world-renowned #1 selling Golfersskin, Kidsskin was the result of years of research into a sunscreen that kids could safely use, that would meet their personal standards while at the same time offering secure and trustworthy protection.

  • Kidsskin exceeds the world’s highest Sunscreen standard – the AS/NZS 2604:2012. (Available on request).
  • Kidsskin has the approval of the International Melanoma Foundation.
  • Kidsskin tested in vito (on person) at an spf of 66. This is as high as sunscreen carefully gets, and is legally allowed in Australia and New Zealand. Claims of spf 100 are spurious at best, fraudulent at worse.  We do not use animals for testing.


Apart from world-class broad spectrum sun protection with a safe, spf50+ waterproof, sweat proof formulation, The Unique Ingredient Combination within our formula provides many skin care benefits to water users in addition to serious sun protection.
