Are you going on holidays with your family? Read our tips and enjoy your summer holidays!


Enjoy the summer with the whole family

The summer has begun ! Whether you enjoy your holidays in your own country or abroad, protect yourself properly to enjoy the sun and summer to the fullest . Especially children are vulnerable to summer ailments such as a sunburn, sunstroke, mosquito or tick bite. Our Care Plus collection of summer products guarantee carefree travels for the whole family .

Sun Protection

Sunlight is healthy, but UV rays are also risky. Protect your skin by wearing covering (UV-protective) clothing and a sun hat or cap. We recommend to stay in the shadow between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and to apply sun protection SPF 30 or 50 generously and regularly.  For good UV protection, it is very important to use the right quantity of sunscreen. A good standard is to use one teaspoon of cream for your entire face, two teaspoons for one arm or leg, and four teaspoons for the front and back of the average torso. Anti-sunburn products should always be applied to the skin 30 minutes before exposure to the sun. If a sunscreen is used in combination with an insect repellent, the sunscreen should first be allowed to absorb into skin for 20 minutes. The insect repellent can then be applied and allowed to dry for 10 minutes before sun exposure.

Do not forget your lips while tanning. The Sun Protection Lipstick SPF 30 is a nourishing lipstick with a high protection that keeps your lips healthy and beautiful. Vitamin E and Shea Butter in the lip balm protect from external influences and soothe dry, chapped lips. This lipstick will not melt or freeze. Our lipstick has been tested at temperatures of -20°C to + 50°C. Sun dries out the skin. That is why it is a good idea to hydrate skin properly after exposure to the sun. Care Plus After Sun nourishes and soothes the skin after sun exposure and is also suitable for sensitive and children’s skin.

Protection against jellyfish

Due to the mild winter we have more jellyfish along the coast. Luckily, the Care Plus ® Sun Protection Outdoor & Sea SPF 50, protects not only from the harmful rays of the sun, but also most jellyfish stings, coral and sea anemones. The Outdoor & Sea lotion is waterproof.

Ticks and mosquitoes

What else is needed for a carefree holiday, is  good protection against insects and ticks. Besides the fact that a bite or sting is very annoying, the animal may occasionally transmit serious diseases, like malaria, dengue fever (dengue), yellow fever and Lyme disease. Protect your skin with Care Plus ® Anti-Insect Natural, based on lemon-eucalyptus extracts. This insect repellent is suitable for adults and children aged three months and older. For children from 3 years DEET products are available. Care Plus Natural offers up to 6 hours of protection against mosquitoes and three hours against ticks. Are you bitten by a tick? Remove a tick within 8 hours safely and quickly with the Tick-Remover to minimize the risk of contamination. 

Ouch! First Aid!

Make sure you are well-prepared for small accidents. With a well-stocked first aid kit you can act quickly in case of a burn, cut or scrape. Wounds need to be treated and bandaged, especially in hot and humid climates, where infection can develop rapidly. Our waterproof rubber bandage protect the wound from water and dirt. You can take a shower and swim without any problems Perfect for children who feel for a dive into the pool!

Travel pharmacy

Mountain biking, hiking, canoeing: strenuous activity can result in a loss of fluids. Drink plenty of water. A combination of the right quantities of salts and sugars enhances the absorption of water during physical exertion. A glucose-salt preparation like O.R.S. promotes the absorption of water during physical activity.

Long hikes, new shoes, hot weather: feet are exposed to a multitude of challenges. Care for your feet with our foot care products and prevent and treat callouses, blisters, and irritation.

Our earplugs are made of moldable silicone and suitable for adults and children from 3 years and older. Care Plus ® Flexible Earplugs protect ears from water, noise, dust, pressure and wind. The pliable and colorless silicone are washable and reusable.

Personal hygiene when traveling

Are you going camping? Clean Bio soap is a concentrated biodegradable soap which is made of organic ingredients. This antibacterial soap is multifunctional and can be used for washing hands, skin, hair, lightly soiled clothing, and dishes. The soap is suitable for use with fresh, brackish, and even salt water. And for all the times that even no water is at hand, we recommend our hand gel solution. The cleansing Care Plus ® Pro Hygiene hand gel makes hands feel clean and refreshed without the use of soap and water.  Special ingredients like aloe vera prevent hands from drying out. You can take the 100 ml and 30 ml bottles in your hand luggage onboard an airplane.

Hand luggage only 

Every year more people choose to travel by plane only taking hand luggage. The advantages? It’s faster and cheaper. But there's a downside to traveling with hand luggage only, namely the limitation of liquid stuff that you can take. How do you deal with that as almost all of your personal care products are liquid? The answer is simple: with the 100 ml products of Care Plus, recognized by the airplane logo on the packaging.

Let the summer begin! We wish you happy holidays!
