The child-friendly sunscreen applicator

Solar Buddie applicators are unique because they have been designed specifically for use by children to learn how to apply their sun cream independently. The shape of the bottle is chunky so it is easier for children to grip; the roller ball controls the flow of the sun lotion that is stored in the head of the applicator, while the sponge helps children to rub the sunscreen into their skin without having to clean sand from their hands first. Solar Buddies are refillable so parents can choose a product most suitable for their child's skin. They are perfect for back packs, school bags, beach bags and even glove boxes.

Sponge and rollerball application

The beauty of Solar Buddies is the way the child-friendly rollerball and sponge work together to allow even, all-over application in a way that kids can enjoy. This fun, less mess way of easily applying lotion lets kids learn, under adult supervision, to apply essential sunscreen to themselves. The Rollerball allows just the right amount of sunscreen to be applied, and the sponge makes rubbing it onto even the most sensitive skin, easy, comfortable and quick.

Less mess, no waste and easy to use.

Once you fill up your Solar Buddie, you can forget messy, sticky bottles with pump-top dispensers or spray nozzles that clog up with sand and grit and dribble onto your hands. Children find these types of containers hard to use and hold, they often miss where they are aiming and the applicators spill and drip and get more sunscreen on the bottle and their hands than on their bodies! Solar Buddies can be used one-handed, even by smaller children once they have been supervised and taught how to apply sunscreen correctly, to get even coverage in every nook and cranny from knee backs, necks, elbows and faces to make sure that your child is fully protected from the sun.

A Solar Buddie for everyone!

Solar Buddies let you use a sunscreen of your choice for personalised protection. If you have different requirements, different 'factor' levels and even different ingredients to suit the skin types and sun tolerance of the various members of your family or school group, each can have their own Solar Buddie to match their needs.
