Children are more susceptible to UV-related skin damage than adults. We obtain most of our lifetimes sun exposure as children and teenagers. It is known that sunburn during childhood can lead to severe skin damage in later years. You should use a specially formulated high factor product for children, such as our Once a Day SPF40 or our Sensitive Sun Lotion Spray SPF50+ and ensure it is re-applied, especially after swimming and towelling. Ideally, children should be covered up with loose clothes and wide-brimmed hats. Most importantly, children under 6 months should be kept out of direct sunlight.
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and represents the sunscreens ability to protect your skin from the suns rays in addition to your skins natural protection. Depending on your skin type, hair colour, eye colour and location, you may be able to stay in the sun for 10 minutes without burning.
If you apply a sunscreen with SPF30 this means that you can stay in the sun 30 times longer than you could without sunscreen. However, you must use sunscreen as directed and ensure enough sunscreen is initially applied (35ml) for maximum coverage. Higher factors should not be used to increase your time in the sun, but to increase your level of protection.
Yes! They keep their effectiveness by binding more strongly to the skin, so they last longer. Our Calypso Once A Day range is rigorously tested to ensure that even after 8 hours of wear, it still offers the SPF on the label. You should be extra careful to apply enough of the product and make sure all exposed skin is covered. However, please remember that even water-resistant Once A Day sunscreens can still be washed off if you spend a long time in the water or if you dry yourself with a towel, so you might need to reapply.
Sunscreens leave a protective layer on your skin, which can be washed off by water. A sunscreen that is water-resistant stays on your skin for longer than normal. However, it will still be washed away eventually. To be safe, reapply if you spend more than forty minutes in the water. If you dry yourself with a towel or take a shower anything that involves rubbing your skin you should also reapply immediately. You will need to dry your skin before reapplying sunscreen, unless youre using our Calypso Dry Oil Wet Skin Spray. This can be applied on both wet and dry skin.
Calypso SPF products meet all UVA and UVB standards and are rigorously tested to ensure their effectiveness. The star rating system was designed by Boots (retailer) and is not recognised as industry standard, nor is it regulated.
The letters "UVA" inside a circle is a European industry standard marking, which is contained on all Calypso products.
I had difficulty getting hold of my usual day-long sun cream so took a chance on this. . As others have said, its a gel and not a cream, but it absorbs super fast and its easy to apply. 2 weeks in day-long sunshine over 30 degrees and I have a good tan and no sunburn. I also usually suffer from heat rash but not with this product.
