We at Cocoon Child love the sunshine but are cautious about young skin’s exposure to harmful rays so we were so excited to come across this awesome sun-safe swimwear brand that we are introducing to the UK for the very first time.

Beach and Bandits are a seaside based brand, born out of a love for long summer days on the beach, which they translate into cool, comfortable & sun-safe (UPF50+) pieces for your little bandits. Through their hand drawn illustrations they want to capture your little bandits’ imagination and encourage their wanderlust. But above all, they want to keep your little bandits safe in the sun. Skin cancer is increasingly becoming the most common type of cancer worldwide. And with childhood sunburns being the leader in causing skin cancer later in life, we need to ensure our kids are protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

‘We keep them safe, they keep us wild!’
