Have fun under the sun

What’s a better way to enjoy the summer sun than having outdoor fun? From outdoor sports and games to picnics and camping, many exciting activities can make this season even more delightful for the kids and let them create great memories. Just make sure they wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen like the Beach Hut Sunscreen Babies & Kids to protect them from the sun’s harmful UV rays when they explore the great outdoors. 

Packed with SPF50 protection, the Beach Hut Sunscreen Babies & Kids is a gentle and hypoallergenic mineral sunscreen perfect for kids’ sensitive skin. Aside from blocking UVA and UVB rays, this sunscreen can moisturize kids’ skin for up to 72 hours as an excellent bonus.
