"My daughter suffers with skin irritations and has been allergic to every sun
cream that we have tried until using Green People Organic Children’s Sun Lotion.
It's been a real life saver, no reactions and we have been using it daily on her
for the last 4 summers. We wouldn't use anything else, it's non greasy, easy to
apply and you can stay out in the sun with the confidence that you won't burn.
We can't recommend this product enough."
"I first used this product on my son who has very bad eczema 3 years ago and
have not found a better sun lotion (even special prescription lotions). Would
thoroughly recommend this as a product to use on anyone with sensitive skin."
"Hi, We have just returned from turkey for a two week holiday. My 9yr old
daughter is a redhead and very fair, even with factor 50 kids sun cream she
would still burn and hated me applying it because it took ages and left a
disgusting sticky residue . On trying your factor 25 sun lotions including the
lavender one she never went red, never complained and it did not leave her
feeling sticky and sweaty. I also used the childrens aloe vera aftersun which
she said didn't sting like other aftersuns I have purchased, including well
known makes. Thank you! I also used factor 15 with tan accelerator as I suffer
with prickly heat and I am so impressed with your products I am converted. I
have even bought my mum some of your suncream as she also suffers with prickly
heat . I hope other people give your products a try, I was a little sceptical at
first as the products are more expensive but so glad I used them and will never
go back to non organic skin products ! "
"I use this on my 5 year old son, who has suffered from eczema since he was 4
months old. It is the only sun cream that doesn't sting or irritate his skin.
Great protection- never burned."
"On our previous holidays in the sun, our daughter (aged 8) has always come
out in a 'prickly heat' type rash on her chest and stomach within a day or two
of being in the sun/pool, despite using good quality suntan creams. This rash
then turned very sore making it almost impossible to apply further suntan cream
or moisturisers, which in turn made the holiday unpleasant for all. This year we
decided to give the 'organic children' products a go, after reading some of the
reviews, and we are VERY glad that we did, as the products worked brilliantly.
For the first time ever, no prickly heat, no sore skin, just a lovely tan and
very soft skin. In fact the aftersun is so good and smells great, we will
continue using it on a regular basis, now we are home. We would recommend this
product to any parent looking for a suntan cream."
"We have just got back from our two week holiday in Spain and I just had to
post a review of this fantastic sun tan lotion for children. My kids were out in
the sun and in and out of the sea all day and there was not once instance of sun
burn! It is easy to apply and rubs in well, as it is non scented all the kids
would wear it without any fussing and as it was organic so I felt happy applying
it to my children's delicate skin."
"My 9 month old has very sensitive skin and this sun block has been great for
him. Very easy to apply, NOT greasy (it actually feels really good to put it on
his skin!), no strong chemical-y smells, and has kept my baby from sun burn. I
would highly recommend this sun block to everyone."
"Having three children two of whom suffer with really bad eczema, I always
find Summer a nightmare when applying sun cream, I have tried all sorts of
sensitive skin sun creams but as soon as I applied them my kids were crying with
the stinging it caused and I would just have to wash it off. Then finally after
a lot of reading on the internet this cream was recommend by lots of different
websites for eczema so I decided to buy it and wow I am so pleased this cream is
so light non sticky, even when my children’s eczema is really badly inflamed
(which is usually in summer when it is hot) I have had no problems at all, so
for the first time this Summer I can finally go abroad without the kids
screaming every morning when I apply this lotion. If you check out the Green
people website you can buy sample sachets first. The after cream is just as
amazing as well."
"Having two children that both come out with eczema or a rash after using
anything perfumed and even the non perfumed "sensitive/non-allergy for kids"
products I have finally found something that they can wear all over, even on
their face, backs of knees etc without any reaction. Add to that it is a very
effective SPF - 4 weeks in 35+ degree heat in Oz and they didn't burn once.
"After a lot of research into Sun radiation, risk of skin cancers and vitamin
D production (all inter-related) I became a strong advocate of non-using sun
creams. But as we were going to ski with two kids, we decided to take sun cream
just in case sun is too strong, which can be up in the Alps. I definitely was
not going to buy commercial creams, full of stuff that, to put it mildly, does
not do you any good, so Green People came to the rescue again (kids are using
their toothpaste and I am very happy that they are not eating fluoride that they
would if we used "other" brands that you see ads on TV etc.). Composition of
this cream makes me much more comfortable using it on kids (as rare as I can
anyway); most components are natural and organic. Overall a very good product,
if you absolutely have to use a sun cream, make it Green People."
"Does as it says. My 2 girls also suffer with heat rash & whilst away
recently they used this product & didn’t suffer once."
"I have not yet tried it out in the sun. However I have been searching high
and low for a sun scream that hasn't brought my son out in a rash or made his
eczema flare up.
I had tried all the ones you can buy normally from the
shops including those that say 'hypoallergenic' 'for sensitive skin' to no
avail. I put some of this on my sons arm and it caused no reactions and where it
had gone onto patches of eczema the cream actually made the skin there a little
softer and smoother! My son (3 yrs old) also walked round the house the rest of
the day saying the cream felt nice and his arm felt nice :) This cream is pretty
pricey but worth it."
"I'd already read reviews on mumsnet etc and decided to buy this rather than
risk another rash from a well known high street chemist's own brand. Yes it's a
lot more expensive, and is only Factor 25 but my son was well protected in the
24 degree heat of Menorca. It is non greasy and easy to apply."
"We purchased this as we don't like to use any products with harmful
chemicals on our bodies. We chose a children's sun lotion as we thought it would
be the least harmful of all. We just got back from a beach holiday in Spain and
this was the perfect choice! I have very sensitive skin and was able to use this
on my face without having any outbreaks. This is our new lotion of choice. I
love what the Green People stand for and will be looking to purchase more of
their products in the future. A definite must on holidays."
"My son, who is five years old, has eczema and a peanut allergy, and in the
last two years he has become really allergic to sun creams. It has been a
nightmare I can’t even tell you how many high street brands I’ve tried! Even
prescription sun creams have flared his eczema up. I took him to the GP and his
answer was to keep him out of the sun, because if you don’t all his allergies
will heighten.... his asthma had also started to flare up again. It was actually
on netmums.com that I found out about Green People Sun Lotion... and seriously I
cannot thank you enough!! It’s an amazing product and NO ECZEMA and no flare ups
either! It’s perfect, I LOVE IT!!!!!! Thank you so much and I will spread the
word to everyone."
"My daughter is 10 years old and has eczema and a nut allergy. Recently she
has become allergic to sun creams to a point where her neck actually swelled up.
We have tried most of the popular sun creams and some prescription ones as well.
All I can say is thank you Green People, because without your children’s
suncream my daughter would have been unable to go in the sun. We have had a
great 2 week holiday in Ibiza with 30 degree heat and no sunburn or rashes. In
my opinion it should be available everywhere and it’s amazing. THANKYOU."
"My son is nearly 6 years old and ever since he was born has been highly
allergic to sun cream. We have tried loads of high street brands from the
cheaper end of the price spectrum to the most expensive. They all say that they
are hypoallergenic and are designed for children with sensitive skin. However,
all of them give him an itchy prickly heat rash within an hour of application.
This rash is so itchy that he finds it hard to sleep without taking a dose of
anti histamine. The rash can last up to 5 days.
Before he started school we could manage the sun without creams, always
ensuring he had a hat and where possible a UV suit or just limiting his exposure
to the sun. Now he is at school all day it is out of our control. The first
sunny day his face burnt. In despair I went to my GP for help, he could not
recommend anything but spoke to a dermatologist friend of his who suggested
scent free products.
I tried this product and it is wonderful. My son has no reaction what so
ever. I can send him to school on sunny days without worry. He gets to go off in
the morning without a lecture on playing out of the sun so he loves it too."
"Organic Children No scent is the only suncream I have been able to find that
does not irritate my little girl's skin! Couldn't be without it! :)"
"We were on holiday in Jamaica when my daughter's face swelled and we had to
take her to a doctor. She was diagnosed with solar dermatitis and given strong
anti histamines etc. Later in the UK the same thing happened yet without the
same sun intensity. We discovered it was the sun lotion that she was reacting
with but still needed to protect her. We tried Organic Children's one and it was
brilliant. It protected her and she had no reactions what so ever!"
"Although my children have never suffered from sun burn, after a week on
holiday the skin on my son's back would crack and end up looking like snake skin
and my daughter's legs would get extremely sensitive to even the gentlest
After using your no scent sun lotion and after sun lotion I was delighted to
find that after 3 weeks in the sun and swimming pool my children's skin showed
no sign of dryness or tenderness - and it smelled beautiful too. I have
now been using your sun cream for 2 years and will not change."
My son seems to be allergic to most sun lotions on the market and develops a
nasty itchy rash which last for days afterwards. I was beginning to get desprate
as to what sun cream to try next. I googled for help and came across tons of
extremely positive testimonials for the Green People Sun Lotion for children. I
read almost all the reviews and bought the sun cream on the strength of them. I
have to say, I am completey thrilled, we have used the sun lotion on my son for
2 days in a row and his skin has not reacted at all. I shall definitely be
buying this again. Thank you so much.
I want to say a huge thank you for this Suncream. My son always developed
really itchy skin and prickly heat from all the other suncreams I've tried. On
our recent holiday he had no problems at all whilst using this cream and was
really well protected form the sun. It was such a relief to go on holiday and
not worry about how is skin would be. Thank you!
I just have to say how amazed I am with your products. I am
a doting, first time grandmother of gorgeous little Harry, now aged 11months.
From a couple of months old, he suffered from skin problems on his face, hands,
feet etc. My daughter was visiting the G.P. regularly, but the various creams
and lotions seemed to make it worse. Also, in this sunny weather we've been
having - sun creams really made his skin flare up. So I did a little on-line
research and found your site. I ordered some products - my daughter has been
using them for about a month now - and we particularly like the sun cream and
baby salve. Within days Harry's skin was so much better - it has now been clear
for 3 weeks - previously unheard of - especially in this heatwave. We are so
relieved that our gorgeous little boy is no longer uncomfortable and scratching,
but now healthy, happy and glowing - if I could give you a medal I would!!!!!
"I just wanted to thank you for your great children's SPF25 no scent sun
lotion. After many years of trying various sun lotions which inflamed my
daughter's eczema we have just returned from a wonderful itchy free holiday. Her
skin did not react once during our holiday and she looks sun kissed and healthy
without a scratch in sight!"

"My 3 year old is very sensitive to shampoo, soaps, creams - in fact most of
the time from birth we have simply used water with no products at all if we
could help it! I found your website after much research into sun creams,
involving borrowing samples from playgroup friends and noting down anyone who
had had any success with sun cream on sensitive skin! Finally on a site dealing
with this issue I noticed your products came up again and again with obviously
positive results. I tried it on my daughter hardly daring to believe it might
work and - it did! Thank you!! It is a great relief to be able to let her play
in the sun without worrying!"
"We have been using your Organic Suncreams for our family for a few years
now. They are more expensive than the non-organic suncreams, but well worth it
not having to worry about what's in the suncream. We went on holiday with family
and friends in May (2006).
One family there had a Special Needs (Red head) toddler, who had very
sensitive skin. They had tried many various suncreams but they all made his skin
suffer terribly. However, despite our Organic Suncream being ridiculed (very
prejudicially) by another adult of the group, they thought they'd try the
Organic one. W
We posted them some of our (your) Organic Children's Suncream straight after
the holiday and - they said it had worked wonderfully, and that it had stopped
the sunburn and the skin was fine. They were very pleased to have found a
Children's Suncream that, at long last, had worked for their child who had such

"I am amazed by this product! I have tried numerous sun tan lotions on my
daughter who has a sensitive skin condition. This is the only one that has not
reacted to her skin, it actually seemed to make it better!! Highly recommend!"

"Oh my, I have a tan! I am 32 and have only tanned once in my life before. I
usually go bright red, peel and go white again after a few (painful) weeks. I
bought the child's suncream and decided to use it too, rather than buying two
types. I have not burnt and have been sensible with shade and clothing."
