Product title
Suncream for children
Nivea Sun Kids
Product description
Two blue plastic stand-alone tubes with yellow lids (models 1 and 2) and an upright blue bottle with a yellow lid (model 3). A new adhesive label is affixed to the products with instructions and warnings in different languages.
Risk
Due to an incorrect translation of the label, the French version of the label gives misleading information to consumers stating that babies and small children should be exposed to direct sunlight instead of the correct statement 'Babies and small children should not be exposed to direct sunlight'. This can potentially result in children and babies being excessively exposed to sunlight. The product does not comply with the Cosmetic Products Regulation.
