Oasis Sun Kids Zinc Sunscreen Stick SPF 30 PA++
Superior healthy family sun protection.
Kids Zinc Sunscreen Stick is a 100% natural zinc-based formulation that provides broad spectrum protection and makes it easy for kids to put on their own sunscreen during the day. It’s super easy for small hands to apply and perfect to pop into kindy bags, school bags, sports bags and beach bags so you know your kids always have sun protection.
Sun health education should begin with our children. So teach them how to apply evenly so that all exposed skin is covered. This sunscreen stick is easy to use, just remove the cap and wipe over skin. To get the best protection, wipe generously over all exposed skin at least 20 minutes before going outside. Reapply every 2 hours or every 40 minutes if swimming.
Be sun smart
Sunscreen is not a suit of armour. New Zealand and Australia have exceptionally harsh UV conditions, so during peak burn time (10am to 5pm) we advise parents to keep their children in the shade and dress them in sun protective clothing as well as applying sunscreen as directed. Research shows that wearing sunscreen does not impact on children’s Vitamin D levels but does cut down the risk of developing skin cancers later in life.

What is UVA/UVB?
- UVA (A for ageing) is a long wavelength that penetrates deeper into the skin than UVB. It is responsible for damaging elastin and collagen fibres, causing photo ageing and cell changes that can lead to skin cancer.
- UVB (B for burning) is a shorter wavelength and is responsible for redness and burning.
What is SPF?
- SPF (Sun Protection Factor) indicates the degree of protection against UVB rays.
What is PA++?
- PA is the measure of protection against UVA.
What is broad spectrum protection?
Broad spectrum means protection against both UVA and UVB rays.
