Introducing Sunscreen Creams for Children Available at Drugstores in Japan!

Writer : Chigusa

Japan continues to face fierce heat every day! Sunscreen cream is a necessity when going outside, so today I'd like to introduce those that are suitable for children.
Since these types are gentle enough for children, I also highly recommend them for adults who have delicate skin!

All of the sunscreens introduced in this article can be removed by lathering up well with soap, so you can wash them off gently!

Biore Silky Smooth UV Growing Kid's Milk SPF 50+

This is a freely-flowing, milky type of sunblock. It blends easily into the skin, and it won't turn white.
Because this waterproof type is resistant to sweat, water and rubbing, it's recommended for water play. It also contains Vaseline, a moisturizing ingredient.
