Prickly Heat

Ladival’s products are free from perfume, colourants, preservative and emulsifiers, meaning Ladival can help to avoid prickly heat.

Prickly Heat and the Sun

Prickly heat is an itchy rash of small, raised red spots that cause a prickling or stinging sensation on the skin. It can develop anywhere on the body, but most commonly appears on your face, neck, back, chest or thighs.

Prickly heat rashes usually appear a few days after exposure to hot temperatures or time spent in the sun, and typically develop when you sweat more than usual.

Babies and children are usually more susceptible to getting prickly heat during hot or humid weather because their sweat glands are not yet fully developed.

Prickly heat usually clears up on its own within a few days. But many people who experience it dread going out in warmer weather or on hot holidays abroad, spending most of their time in the shade.

Prickly Heat and your Sun Protection

The symptoms of prickly heat can be made much worse by most sun creams, the perfumes, preservatives, colorants and PEG emulsifiers they contain can irritate the skin.

Sun creams containing fats or parabens can block sweat glands and can aggravate your prickly heat because they block your pores, preventing your skin from breathing as it should.

None of Ladival’s products contain any preservatives, perfumes, colorants, fats, parabens or PEG emulsifiers. So Ladival is ideal for sensitive or oily skin, helping avoid prickly heat and sun allergy.

The range is safe to use on your face and décolletage for people who experience prickly heat in these areas. Ladival is dermatologically tested to be kind to delicate skin.
