As we {hopefully} are winding down with the cold winter snow and temps, we can start to set our sights on sunny and warmer weather. With that said, during the hotter months, we like to play in the water, etc.  Hopefully we apply sun protection not only to ourselves but to our children as well to reduce or even prevent Melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, later in life, according to the National Skin Care Foundation.

One of the best ways to protect children from the sun is by covering them up with protective clothing. Eclipse® Sun Products has just introduced their new line of sun protective clothing made especially for babies and kids. The new Kids/Baby Comfy Sun Ponchos are an excellent alternative to slathering on layers of sunscreen, and deliver comfort and optimal  coverage from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

“Children especially need to be protected from the sun’s UV rays as well as  chemicals found in various sunscreens,” says Elise Champe, owner of  Eclipse® Sun Products. “Most parents dread having to continuously layer  on sunscreen every time their kids go outdoors. Our Kids/Baby Comfy Sun  Ponchos are lightweight, comfortable, easy to get on and off, and  protect against UV exposure even when wet. There is no other product out there like this,” she says.

The ponchos are available in two sizes, for 1-3 year olds and 4-7 year  olds. The 4-7 year old size can fit a small adult. Here are 3 benefits  of wearing the Eclipse® Kids/Baby Comfy Sun Poncho:
  • Optimal Coverage. The children’s poncho effectively covers the head, neck, shoulders,  trunk, and arms. On an adult, it covers the chest, shoulder and upper  arms for the most protection from harmful rays.
  • Comfortable. No more struggling to remember to apply sunscreen. The poncho is light  and loose-fitting to keep the hot sun off your child’s skin while not  constraining them from playing.
  • Protection. The ponchos provide UPF 50+ sun protection, minimizing the need for chemical sunscreens that may be harmful for some people.
Parents will love the new ponchos for their convenience and protection,” says  Champe. “They aren’t tight-fitting and the loose design makes them  comfortable, even in the heat,” she says.
Eclipse Sun Products, which include sun sleeves and sun gloves, are being used  by many people who spend a lot of time outdoors, including golfers,  drivers, hikers, and bikers. They are UPF 50+, fashionable, finger-free, and made from patented sun guard fabric. They are made of Spandex to  provide a non-slip fit. They also provide moisture wicking and cooling.  For more information, visit the site at www.eclipseglove.com.
