Mother Panics, Takes Daughter to Hospital After Using Popular Children’s Sunscreen


Many parents use sunscreen to protect their children from the sun and feel safe using specifically children’s sunscreen products such as Banana Boat Kids, Banana Boat Baby, or Water Babies.

Banana Boat kids products are meant to be ‘for moms searching for that perfect sunscreen that’s gentle on kids’ skin, yet powerful enough to provide powerful protection’, according to the Banana Boat website.

However, one mom had a very bad experience with one of their products: ‘Banana Boat Kids SPF50 Spray’.

After she applied the children’s sun screen on 14-month-old daughter, she had to take her to the hospital where the doctor discovered second-degree burns.


"As the day went on, she got a little redder and redder and the next morning she woke up and was swollen, she was bright red, there were blisters starting to pop up. We immediately took her up to the doctors and found out she has second degree burns. I know for her age, she should be wearing baby sunscreen, but we didn't have any. I figured just putting it mildly on her face, for some protection rather than having none at all, would be OK and yeah, it didn't go over well."

After conducting personal research and discovering many other incidents, the mom stated, "I would have never — in a million years — imagined her to get a burn so severe from sunscreen...I honestly don't understand how it's still on the shelves.”


The company released a statement to CBC News expressing their concerns, announcing that they requested the product from the consumer for testing, and are issuing the mother a full refund.

Have you used this sunscreen on your children before? If so, did you have any problems?
