Whilst it might still feel a long way off, the summer months will be upon us before we know it. The return to normality, the continuation of the vaccine rollout and the promise of a removal of social distancing rules and measures all seem like the light at the end of the tunnel we’re all desperately clinging on to. Amidst that excitement, though, it would be only too easy to forget about some summer staples that keep your mood good and your skin protected. The team here at Guardpack offer both their own brand suncream sachets and insect repellent wipes (under the mywipe brand) as well as private label manufacturing services. We wanted to look at the various benefits and wide range of situations in which our sachets and wipes could prove useful in the coming months.
(Don’t) Feel The Burn…
Whether you’re going on a staycation or going all-out on a trip to the Costa del Sol, suncream sachets are a must. Your banking on the idea that “well, we don’t really get much sun in Britain, do we?” won’t come as much of a consolation if you end up nursing a nasty bit of sunburn from the shade whilst your friends and family are out and about making the most of the good weather! These single sachets are a perfect travel essential for days out, bike rides or that long awaited round of golf with friends.
Our mywipe suncream sachets have an SPF of 25 which means they offer a good amount of protection for your skin whilst also still giving you a bit of tanning potential! They’re great for sensitive skin and seriously low on mess. Bottled suncream, on the other hand – even when it comes in travel-size bottles – can be awkward to carry around, gets messy quickly and is often oily. The final feather in our sachets’ cap? It has a slight (but not overpowering) scent of coconut oil so you’ll smell great, as well!
Staycations Are Great – But Don’t Get Bitten…
If you’re sat here reading this thinking that insect repellent wipes only prove useful in tropical and exotic climates, then we’re afraid you’re going to have to think again. Even with international travel restrictions likely to be lifted by the peak summer months, there are many people understandably still hesitant about taking the plunge and jetting off to sunnier climes. So, what’s the alternative? The staycation. A couple of weeks on sandy Cornish beaches, perhaps? Or a holiday exploring one of Britain’s countless national parks?
That sounds all well and good, of course, but the mixture of warm summer temperatures and the seemingly unavoidable periods of rain that Britain provides mean that midges and their biting mouths are practically an inevitability. While some are lucky that midges and mosquitos just don’t seem to bother them, many find that they act as the proverbial flame to the moth, then know just how annoying these bites can be! It may seem innocuous enough, but the constant temptation to scratch at a midge’s bites can really dampen your holiday experience. Our insect repellent wipes help prevent this problem. More so than ever – as we look forward to seeing friends in pub gardens or indeed our own – we don’t want those evenings ruined by insect bites on our return!
“More Effective Than DEET”
Suitable for anyone over the age of six months, our insect repellent wipes are impregnated with the highly effective Citrepel 75® and offer protection from all sorts of biting insects (including midges, sand flies, gnats and ticks) for up to 6 hours. This natural formula contains eucalyptus oils outperforms traditional active ingredients within insect repellents like DEET (diethyltoluamide).
Who Can Benefit From Our Suncream Sachets & Insect Repellent Wipes?
Our own-brand suncream sachets (which come in both packs of 20 as well as cases of 500) are perfect for school trips, sports days and even break times for pupils who don’t have access to their own suncream or, indeed, have just forgotten to bring it in – no matter how many times you utter the phrase as a parent “remember your suncream”, there’ll always be those times they don’t… Parents – toss a few sachets in their school bag, then there’ll always have a handy supply. Likewise, it’s cost-effective and sensible to have their own supply of these suncream sachets for those reasons listed above.
For Those In A Rush
Faffing about with suncream application is well and good when you’ve got the time, but if you’re in a rush, you’ll more likely just try your luck and stick to the shade. With our handy sachets, however, you can stick one quickly in your pocket (without fear of getting messy) and apply it whenever suits you.
Children & Toddlers
Knowing what products to use on your little ones can be a bit of a minefield. Look online and you’ll see articles and forums every which way telling you to do this and not that, and vice versa. It’s confusing and it’s frustrating because all you want to know is what’s going to be safe for your child’s skin. Both our suncream and insect repellent formulas are completely safe and suitable for young children, as well as being great for those with sensitive skin. So, if you’re looking for a simple answer as to what suncream is good for your kids, we’ve got that answer.
Whether you’re looking to buy in bulk or for your own purposes, being prepared for the summer months will make sure that this summer really is all you’ve been looking forward to and waiting for.
