Why choose Soltan?

All our products have the highest UVA star rating

UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin, causing long term skin damage and premature ageing.

The UVA star rating system shows how much protection a product has, with five stars being the highest level.

We've been protecting skin for over 75 years

Since Soltan began in 1939, we've been at the forefront of sun protection developments, even introducing the first UVA measurement system in 1992, the Boots Star rating system which later became widely used across the industry and is still used today. We're still continuously improving our range using the latest technology because we are committed to bringing you the best sun protection for your needs.

We've developed sun creams specifically for children

Kid's skin is more vunerable than adults', so they need sun protection that's made just for them, which is why we developed our Soltan Once Kids range. We even have a paediatrician-approved sun cream especially formulated for babies.

There's a Soltan product for everyone

No matter what kind of sun protection you and your family need, we've got it sorted. From Soltan Dry Touch, which is sand and water resistant, to Soltan Sensitive, a hypoallergenic range formulated especially for sensitive skin, there's something for everyone.

We don't just offer
sun protection

We've developed a variety of products that offer more than just sun protection. We have sun creams with added insect repellent to keep the bugs away; our Soltan Once Face range has an added anti-ageing complex and we even have Soltan Aftersun to cool, soothe and moisturise skin over exposed to the sun, just to mention a few.
