Mustela develops new sun care products for babies

NEW YORK — Mustela, a European skin care and stretch marks brand, recently introduced three products in a sun care range for babies.

The new Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen Lotion and Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen Stick are tested under the most recent FDA requirements for sunscreen and have both been awarded the Melanoma International Foundation’s Seal of Approval, the company stated.

Mustela’s formulations are 100% mineral, with naturally derived sunscreen filters titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.

Given that sunscreen application can be messy and even harder with a baby, the Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen Stick comes in an easy-to-use stick form. Ideal for travel, the stick can be taken anywhere for touch ups on those places where children tend to sweat or gain more sun exposure, such as the nose and cheeks, or for unexpected time spent outdoors.

For those times when a baby’s skin needs extra hydration and soothing, Mustela has developed the After Sun Hydrating Spray with jojoba oil and cupuacu butter.

The products launch in limited retail outlets in February and will be widely available in May.
