We recommend you apply Ladival 15-20 minutes before going out in the sun and apply liberally and evenly. Even though Ladival is water resistant, you should still re-apply after swimming or bathing.
Ladival should be applied frequently to ensure that protection is maintained.  The exact frequency depends upon the sun’s UV index on a particular day, skin type and the activities carried out.  For example, more frequent application is advised for fair skin which burns easily, if the sun’s UV index is high and if activities such as swimming are undertaken (particularly if towel-drying).
Ladival offers sun protection for both adults and kids. The Ladival kids range is available in SPF50 in a spray or lotion to suit your family’s needs. Ladival is clinically proven to be suitable for sensitive skin including children with eczema.

All sun creams are labelled with a sun protection factor (SPF) number. This relates to the amount of time it takes for your skin to burn without any protection and how long it would take if you used the appropriate amount of sun cream. For example, if your skin burns without sun cream in 10 minutes and you are using SPF30, you will have 300 minutes of protection from the sun before you will need to re-apply.
Ladival is water resistant and keeps working even when you go in the water. However to maintain maximum protection, always re-apply after swimming or bathing.

Like the majority of sun creams, Ladival can cause permanent stains, so try to avoid contact with all types of fabric.
When pregnant you can become extra sensitive to the sun’s harsh rays and to heat. It’s important to take extra care in the sun and keep yourself hydrated. Opt for a broad spectrum sun cream with a high SPF, be sure to cover up, sit in the shade and avoid intense midday sun. All ingredients in the Ladival product range have been approved for sensitive skin and are safe to wear when pregnant.
Most sun creams that contain UV-A protection will have a star rating on the packaging. This relates to the level of protection afforded by the UV-A and UV-B protection. The stars indicate the percentage of UV radiation absorbed by the sun cream.

UV-A and UV-B, make up 7% of the sun’s damaging rays and 30% are harmful Infrared-A rays. Therefore, although the UV-A star rating is important in terms of UV-A protection, it is not a reflection of how protected you will be when considering all of the sun’s damaging rays.

IR-D Infrared Defence™ is a trademarked term which represents Ladival’s advanced Infrared-A protection system, which has been clinically proven to protect skin from harmful Infrared-A rays. Click here to learn more about IR-D Infrared Defence™.
