What is Sun Awareness Week?

Are you wondering what Sun Awareness Week is all about? Well, from May 1st to May 7th 2023, The British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) hosts this annual campaign to promote sun safety and raise awareness about the dangers of UV exposure for you and your little ones.

Even on those cloudy days, UV rays can still be damaging, which is why we're passionate about sun safety all year round. Our little explorers are especially vulnerable to UV rays and need proper protection - did you know that kids receive more sun exposure per year than adults?

That's why it's important to take extra precautions, including protecting the eyelids and skin around the eyes, which can be delicate and easily damaged.

It's not just skin damage that should be on your mind when we're out in the  - kids' eyes are still developing and can't filter out harmful UV rays as effectively as adults. That's why it's crucial to take care when outside in the sun. So let's work together towards safer sun exposure for you, your loved ones and your little adventurers.

Why celebrate Sun Awareness Week?

Did you know that up to 80% of our lifetime exposure to damaging UV radiation occurs before age 18, according to the World Health Organization? That's why Sun Awareness Week is a crucial reminder for both you and your children's health.

Despite being a treat for us Brits, the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can pose a danger. Without adequate UV protection, excessive sun exposure, especially on the eyes, may cause various problems like cataracts, macular degeneration. Even if you do not have immediate issues that cause temporary vision loss, the consequences of sun-damaged eyes can last for a long time, so lets protect yourselves and your kids today!

Protecting kids eyes from sun damage

OK, so scary stats over… what we’re saying is, we can all have a great time soaking up the much-needed vitamin D, while making sure our eyes aren’t suffering from the negative effects of sun exposure. The answer? Our stylish sunglasses offer 100% UVB/UVA shatterproof lenses for maximum protection. Plus, our silicone strap ensures they stay on even during the most active playtime.

What sets Babiators apart is their durability and comfort, specifically designed for kids. Our frames are flexible, tough and comfortable so that they can be quickly picked up and popped back onto little faces after a tumble.

In the (rare) event of damage, we offer one free replacement within a year of purchase (just pay shipping). Simply register on our website within 30 days of purchase using the LF code (12-digit number above the box's bar code). Let's give our kids the freedom to explore and have fun in the sun without worrying about harmful sun exposure to their eyes!

Choosing the right sunglasses

We’ve shed some light – pardon the pun - on why Babiators are the answer to your safe, summer fun, but now comes the opportunity to pick your style. 

For your walking, talking bundles of joy, we always recommend that they have a say in what styles to choose. By letting them pick their own pair of sunnies, there’s a much greater chance that they’ll be “cool” enough to wear with pride!

Summer with Babiators

If you’re planning on some wetter adventures this summer, we’re totally on board! Our Babiators Submariners are designed for all our little aquatic-fanatics, to safely explore every pool, shoreline and more! 

Offering 100% UV protection too, our Submariners help to combat UV exposure in water. This is because, in the sea and sun-exposed pools, water is highly reflective meaning UV rays can be reflected by as much as 30%! 

To top it off, these goggles feature an anti-fog coating and shatter-resistant lenses, so are perfect to take away on hols and designed to be leak-proof with its strap adjustment button for a hassle-free fit.
