The Solar Buddies Sun Cream Applicator will make putting on sun cream a fun task before outdoor adventures. No more sand getting mixed in with your sunscreen, no more children complaining about you 'cold hands'!

It is simple for children to apply on their own, making it ideal for holidays, day trips, nursery or school. And because it's compact and lightweight, kids can easily carry it around in their little day packs and school bags. It's reusable, so just top up with your own sunscreen and you're ready to go. The best part is, no messy hands as the sponge distributes the sunscreen evenly over your skin.

One Sunscreen Applicator.

To use, simply unscrew the head, fill it with your favourite sunscreen, pop the lid back on and you’re good to go! It really is that simple!

Solar Buddies work with most sunscreens. We advise not to use oily or watery type sunscreens (e.g Sprays and Nivea brand) as they can leak. Conventional sunscreens from ‘squeezy’ bottles work best. Thicker creams can work but may need a little help getting to a roller ball. Try the 'ketchup shake' to help it out. Don't forget to wash the sponge frequently with warm soapy water and if you are not planning on using for a while clean it all out!

Important information:

The lifespan of the heads depends on how it is used and cared for. We recommend the Solar Buddies are cleaned after the vessel becomes empty. The heads need to be washed on a more regular basis to stop the head from becoming clogged with sunscreen. Do not leave the Solar Buddie in direct sunlight or temperatures that exceed 30C. If in extreme heat keep your Solar Buddies in a shaded place. Do not use sunscreens high in alcohol as this can affect the adhesive. If all directions are followed the Solar Buddies can last in excess of 6-8 weeks. We have always managed to get 3-4 months out of each sponge caring for the Solar Buddie as directed. Sponges can be purchased separately.
