What's great about Solar Buddies?

The Solar Buddies applicators are unique because they have been designed specifically for use by children.

The shape of the bottle is chunky so it is easier for children to grip; the roller ball controls the flow of the lotion that is stored in the head of the applicator, whilst the sponge helps children to rub the lotion in.

The bottle is refillable so parents can choose a product most suitable for their child.

  • Having lost my own brother to skin cancer, I know only too well how important the sun safe message is. Anything we as a society can do to help protect and educate our children on the dangers of exposure to the sun is vital, and that’s why I support Solar Buddies. Kelli and Laura’s passion and drive to invent this product which allows children to apply sunscreen independently is wonderful and I wish them every success with the Solar Buddies.

  • "It’s a smart solution for a problem that all parents face - trying to get your kids to wear sun lotion."

    Second to a healthy diet, protecting your children’s skin against skin cancer is up there as one of the important parenting responsibilities today. Laura and kelli have created a great product in solar buddies that answers parents’ concerns for protecting their kids skin in the playground and on the way/way home from school.
