[Baby: Sun Protection]


Most parents are aware of the need to protect their children from over exposure to the sun, but many are not sure of the best ways to go about it. Ocean Paradise has always taken a proactive approach to sun protection - especially when it comes to young children.

Research shows that most of the damage done to skin by the sun (and that can lead to skin cancer) occurs in early childhood – it's frightening to think that 80% of all skin damage takes place before the age of 21. So it's vitally important to protect young skin. Very young skin is extremely delicate and susceptible to damage, and babies under six months should be kept out of the sun whenever possible. When youngsters go outdoors, they should always wear a wide-brimmed or 'legionnaire' hat that protects the delicate head and neck area, and don't forget the high SPF sunscreen and UV protection sun glasses!

UPF50+ protective clothing gives great protection, and is extremely practical - particularly rash guards and ray suits. The brands stocked by Ocean Paradise are some of the best available worldwide. Our experienced and knowledgeable sales coordinators will be pleased to advise on the best clothing and products for your child.

O'Neill UPF50+ rash guards and boardshorts hail from San Francisco, where Jack O'Neill began making the world's first neoprene wetsuits in 1952. O'Neill has gone on to developed a UPF50+ range to reflect its surfer origins, and provide maximum sun protection. The rugged quality is great for infants and kids who love having fun in the water.
