- Can I use SunBurnt® on any sunburn?
- SunBurnt® After-Sun Gel and Daily After-Sun Lotion are only formulated for mild and moderate sunburns, as well as for those times when we get just a little too much sun. We do not recommend using SunBurnt® products on serious/severe sunburns. Any sunburn, no matter how mild or severe, is skin damage – so always take appropriate precautions before going out in the sun! If sunburn symptoms worsen while using SunBurnt® or last more than 7 days, stop using SunBurnt® and contact your doctor.
- Is SunBurnt® safe to use?
- SunBurnt® is manufactured in the USA under strict safety and clinical manufacturing standards as required by the US Food & Drug Administration. It has been dermatologist- and pediatrician-tested to be non-sensitizing, non-irritating and hypoallergenic. It is paraben-free and does not contain any antibiotics, steroids, or analgesics. We always encourage you to read the list of ingredients to make sure you are not allergic to any ingredient, or discuss with your doctor if you are not sure. An allergic reaction to any topical product can happen, so you should stop using the product if you have an allergic reaction. Please check the label for all information and warnings and use as directed.
- Can I use SunBurnt® on my baby?
- Always consult with your physician before giving any medicines to children under two (2) years of age.
- Can I use SunBurnt® when I am pregnant?
- As we state in the “Warnings” section of the packaging: If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please seek the advice of your physician before using SunBurnt®. Take a tube and package with you, so your physician can read the ingredients before making a recommendation.
- Does using SunBurnt® mean I don’t need to protect my skin?
- No, you should always protect your skin before going out in the sun! SunBurnt® is not a sunscreen lotion, it does not have UVA/UVB protection
- Over time, prolonged exposure to solar UV radiation (rays emitted from the sun) can lead to adverse and chronic health effects on the skin, eye and immune system, including sunburn, premature skin aging, cataracts and skin cancer. Here are a few sun protection tips from CITE: Always take precautions when you are exposed to sunlight. You should wear adequate clothing, eye protection and use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 daily. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resistant, broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. This should be reapplied every two hours, or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating. Newborns should be kept out of the sun. Sunscreens should be used on babies over the age of six months.
- Do I have to remove sunscreen before applying SunBurnt®?
- We recommend washing off your sunscreen and gently cleaning your skin before applying any SunBurnt® product
