Title: Oatmeal in Suncare for Infants
  • Article

As the summer months rapidly approach, sun protection becomes an immediate matter. Although there are those that forget the SPF when heading out in the sun, its application to youth should not be overlooked.  As sensitive as infant's skin tends to be; however, choosing the correct SPF can prove challenging.

As a result of a recent in vivo study, colloidal oatmeal when formulated with sunscreen products was announced to provide SPF 45 protection and additional skin benefits for infants. According to the study, oatmeal helps trap moisture in infant skin and can be as gentle as regular baby products.
