SPECIFICALLY FORMULATED FOR:
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Kids Body Spray SPF50+ has been specifically formulated for children's precious, sensitive skin. Suitable for the face and body, a practical spray format to apply sun protection. Very water, sweat, and sand resistant. Non-perfumed.
The formula provides broad-spectrum protection against the harmful effects of both UVA and UVB rays. The product also contains La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water which soothes sensitive skin.
Anthelios efficacy has been demonstrated in clinical studies carried out on subjects suffering from sun intolerances, particularly those caused by UVA rays. The formula also features our Intellimer technology meaning when the product is spread on the skin, it forms a very even layer of sun-protection, meaning fuller, more complete protection and a less greasy finish compared to classical emulsions.
La Roche-Posay ANTHELIOS is a pioneering player in the suncare market. Its broad-spectrum, very high protection is the result of more than 25 years of advanced clinical research into suncare and sun sensitive skin.

TOP SUN SAFETY TIPS FOR PROTECTING YOUR SKIN
Long days by the pool or on the beach are part and parcel of a summer holiday but too much sun exposure can be harmful to your skin. Here’s what you need to know about sun safety and how to ensure your body is adequately protected – whether you’re on the beach, by the pool or sightseeing with the family.
Be aware when the sun is at its strongest
The sun is at its strongest between 11am and 3pm so it’s advisable to not sit or lie directly in the sun around this time. Make sure you’re wearing a hat and apply a high-factor broad-spectrum sunscreen to your face and body at regular intervals – especially if you’re getting in and out of the water or feel sweaty from the heat.
Children and those with very fair skin are particularly at risk of sunburn so try to cover up with light layers and stay in the shade.
Lying directly in the sun with an aim to tan is dangerous and can cause serious skin damage.
UVB rays (ultraviolet B) are more powerful in the summer months when the sun is at its strongest and also responsible for tanning and burning the skin. They also play the greatest role in the formation of skin cancer.
UVA rays also play a major role in skin damage and penetrate much deeper into the skin than UVB which is why it’s so important to protect the skin adequately from both with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. If you want to still enjoy a holiday glow, invest in a spray tan or apply a good quality fake tan every few days throughout your holiday.
How to apply sunscreen
For sunscreen to work properly, you should apply it at least 15 minutes before you expose yourself to the sun. While it’s tempting to rush outside and enjoy the sunshine, your skin can be damaged in just 15 minutes so layer up before doing anything else.
Cloudy day? You still need sunscreen. UVA rays are present all year around and can penetrate through clouds, glass and water and will still cause skin damage even when the sun isn’t shining.
Top tip: Don’t forget to make sure you apply sunscreen to your hands, feet and ears.
Finding the best sunscreen for you
Finding a sunscreen suited to your skin type will help you to make sure your body stays comfortable all day long. Solar Protective Creams/Lotions/Mists/Waters come in a range of formulas that provide the skin with extra hydration and antioxidants, in addition to broad-spectrum protection.
Choose from SPF 30 or SPF 50 and don’t forget to reapply at regular intervals throughout the day.
- Do not use it, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
For sensitive skin, it is recommended to avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight.
This is a cosmetic product. For medical conditions seek advice from your GP.
Paediatricians and dermatologists recommend that babies under the age 3 years have no direct sun exposure whatsoever. Even in the shade optimal protection is recommended, use full-coverage sunglasses with a high anti-UV index, a wide-brimmed hat and loose-fitting clothing that is long if possible (long-sleeved t-shirt and Bermuda shorts or trousers). Remember that clothing, especially dark-coloured clothing, is the best way to protect yourself and to protect children's delicate and fragile skin from indirect UV rays.
- Avoid exposure when the sun’s rays are the most intense. The higher the sun is in the sky, the stronger its ultraviolet rays are. In the summer, this period runs from 11 am to 4 pm in western Europe.
- Do not stay in the sun for a long time on the pretext you have applied sun protection with a high protection factor. The aim of these products is not to increase the number of hours you are exposed but to reduce risks during exposure.
- More generally, it is best not to stay at the beach all day long.
If it is hot outside, protect your child from both heat stroke and sunburn. Make sure she or he drinks water frequently.
- Use full-coverage sunglasses with a high anti-UV index, a wide-brimmed hat and loose-fitting clothing that is long if possible (long-sleeved t-shirt and Bermuda shorts or trousers). Remember that clothing, especially dark-coloured clothing, is the best way to protect yourself.
Do not trust your impressions. Given that infrared rays cause sensations of heat and not UV rays, you can absolutely get a sunburn without feeling you have been overexposed (for example, when you are on a boat or outside on a cloudy summer day).
In the mountains, there are risks even when temperatures are very low. In fact, the shield offered by the atmosphere decreases due to altitude and so the sun is more aggressive (the amount of UVB rays that reach the skin increases by 4% every 300 metres). In addition, the glare on the snow considerably increases the amount of ultraviolet radiation that reaches the skin (snow can reflect 80% of UV rays).
Don’t be tricked by wind and water: they suppress warning signals triggered by infrared rays by reducing heating sensations, but the UV rays are still there!
A grey sky does not mean you should be less careful in relation to the sun. Indeed, many more UV rays pass through clouds than infrared rays and visible light. This may make the day cooler and less bright but it does not mean the risks related to ultraviolet radiation are reduced.
Prefer the shade to the sun, but be aware that this is not guaranteed protection. The shade does indeed provide protection from direct solar radiation but not from solar radiation reflected by the ground (grass reflects 3% of the UV rays that reach it, sand 5 to 25%, snow 30 to 80% and water 5 to 90%) or from solar radiation diffused by particles suspended in the atmosphere (at noon, 30 to 50% of the UV rays received are due to radiation diffused by atmospheric molecules).
