We want our children to have fun in the sun.
Our children have thin and delicate skin that is sensitive to UV rays, so we must guard them with UV protection.
Our original UV protection ingredient Oxidized Titanium, “Y Titanium” blocks over 99% of UV rays to protect your child’s skin.
Our UV-blocking cream is made of Pineapple Juice Extract, which contains plant-based ceramide components, and the moisturizer Geranium Robertianum Extract. These extracts enrich the skin and protect against dryness and sunburn.

There are 60 trillion cells in the adult human body but only 3 trillion in a newborn baby. By the time children move from infancy to adolescence, their cells have already multiplied twenty times over. The number of damaged and immobile DNA cells increase when growing cells are exposed to UV rays. UV rays are the cause of skin cancer and poorly-aged skin. Since the sun’s UV rays have recently become stronger, young children must wear UV block for at least one year. UV rays are powerful and invisible to the human eye, so their harmful effects may go unnoticed. All parents must take caution and make a habit of preventing UV damage.
UV, especially UV-B, not only causes blotchy and wrinkled skin; it also has a high correlation to allergies as well as skin and eye diseases.
When humans absorb UV rays, our skin becomes red or dark brown, which is known as getting “tan.” Tanning is a type of low-temperature burn, so symptoms may vary from person to person.
In recent years, almost all harmful UV-B is absorbed by the ozone layer. However, with the destruction of the ozone layer, more UV-B has reached earth’s ground.

Many think sunlight (UV rays) only has negative effects, but it also has many beneficial properties. It feels nice to play sports and spend time in the sun. Using a fluffy blanket that’s been dried out on the veranda can lull anyone to sleep. One can say the same for sun-soaked clothes.
It’s fun to play outside, especially for children. But as parents, we must protect our children with the appropriate UV care before they go out to play.
By the time they are 18-years old, humans are said to have absorbed half of the UV rays they’ll absorb in their lifetime. Babies have fragile skin that is too young to produce UV-blocking melanin. Therefore, it is important to protect children from UV rays from a young age.
From the time children are born to when they’re 8-9 years old, they are especially at risk of contracting skin disease when they absorb strong UV rays. Their bodies do not produce enough sebum, which exists on the skin’s surface and is said to block UV rays out.
Let’s safeguard our children with UV protection when they frolic outside or play sports, as early as we can.
MIKI HOUSE provides long-sleeved outerwear and shirts that protects children’s skin. Our spring and summer clothing is made with high-quality, UV-blocking materials, especially most colors of our short-sleeved and polo shirts, which protect against about 90% of UV rays.
For babies, we recommend hooded ponchos, to protect the face and head well, and leg warmers to shield feet with shortalls.
*Excludes some products.
Hats with wide brims effectively block UV rays, with some of our hats blocking more than 80-90%. We recommend also using sunscreen to protect against UV rays that reflect off the ground.
* Excludes products with cooling function, natural materials, and mesh
Swimsuits do not cover a lot of skin, so parents must be wary of the harmful UV rays that bounce off an ocean or pool under strong sunlight. All of our swimwear blocks more than 80-90% of UV rays. However, your child should also wear sunblock and a rash guard to prevent exposure from all angles.
Our cream blocks over 99% of UV rays and protect children’s skin. It contains moisturizing components that wards off dry skin. Click here for more details.
