Stay In The Sun With Caldesun

Caldesun, from the maker’s of Caldesene, is a balanced UV-A, UV-B and unique Infrared (IR-A) cell protection range for the skin.

Caldesun is a “broad spectrum” sunscreen. This means that it protects the children against the UV-A and the UV-B rays and it is unique because it has protection against Infrared (IR-A) radiation. IR-A radiation is considerably lower in energy than ultraviolet light, but penetrates deeper into the skin compared to UV light, irrespective of skin type. Caldesun therefore prevents the deeper penetration of the sun’s rays into the child’s skin. This means that skin is protected during childhood against skin ageing and wrinkling.


Caldesun is clinically tested and is even suitable for children with neurodermatitis,  it has no artificial emulsifiers, perfume, artificial colours or preservatives. It is particularly kind to the skin as its combination of micro-pigments and organic filters protects children’s delicate skin from sunburn and delayed side-effects immediately after application.
