Solar Buddies was invented by friends Laura Griffin and Kelli Aspland, Cwmbran mothers who were concerned about how their children were protecting themselves from the sun whilst at school.
The two mums were aware that there was nothing on the market which helped children independently apply sunscreen and that many of the traditional sun cream bottles and applicators were very difficult for children to use on their own, so they designed the Buddies to make things easier for parents and teachers.
Since then, the Solar Buddy has been a huge success...it is sold in multiple retailers throughout the UK and even sold out in June 2017 due to huge demand!
