Hi, I use this product myself and find it very good. I'm just wondering whether it is ok to use on a 1 year old? He has red hair therefore very fair skin.

as long as you can get a high enough factor , then would have thought that it would be ok. I would use factor 50 on a child. Also test an area of his skin before you apply all over to make sure there is no reaction from any of the ingredients. If he is going to be in the water a lot then you may need to apply it more than once. Also needs to wear a hat. My grandchildren wear the swimsuits that block out the uv rays, personally I would use these on a baby.

Last year the product was on watchdog and this morning after some people had horrific reactions. I would check if the product still has the ingredient that 1 in 10 people are allergic too. I would look for something that does not have these it in. 3 of us on holiday were badly affected by this product not worth the risk and Johnson and Johnson really did not think there was an issue. Last week, the sun cream featured on the BBC's Watchdog show after producers were inundated with health complaints about it. Leading dermatologist Dr Ian White, of St John's Institute of Dermatology in London, said two of the cream's ingredients could be the reason for the severe reactions he had seen. He said his organisation had demanded urgent action into the safety of one of the chemicals used in Piz Buin, C30-38 Olefin/Isopropyl Maleate MA Copolymer, two years ago. He also claimed that one in 10 of the patients he now sees were allergic to another active ingredient in the cream - Methylisothiazolinone.
