A mother has issued a warning to fellow parents after claiming Asda sun cream left her daughter ‘screaming in agony’ with horrific sunburn.
Karen Trett, 41, from Milton Keynes, was on holiday in Mallorca with her family last month and covered her children in the Asda Protect Kids Factor 50 sun cream.
The sun-conscious stay-at-home mum claims that she continued to lather her kids in the lotion every hour and a half.
However, Karen says her daughters Destiny and Lexi were ‘screaming in pain’ with severe sunburn, despite having been covered in lotion all day.

‘I used the cream on the first day of the holiday and kept on topping it up every hour and a half and every time they came out of the water.
‘As there has been skin cancer in the family, I am very conscious about sun damage so make sure that the kids are covered at all times.

‘However, this cream didn’t work, as by the end of the day my daughters were screaming in pain whenever I tried to even put after sun on them – they were so burned.
‘As it was only the first day of our ten day stay it definitely put a dampener on our holiday – so I’m sharing my story so that other children don’t go through this.’
Karen claims it took several days for her daughters’ sun burn to fade and she fears that they may be left scarred.
She said: ‘The burn itself lasted for roughly three days before it started to die down a little bit.

‘However they were still in visible pain and would scream whenever I tried to put clothes on them and would continually tell me how much it hurt.
‘But since we have been home their sun burn appears to have scabbed over, and now I’m nervous that they’re going to have some scarring.
‘It’s just not something that you expect when you’re putting your trust in a sun care product, it’s very upsetting.’
A spokesperson for Asda said: ‘All Asda sun cream is independently tested to the highest industry standards and is labelled with clear usage guidelines, which are especially important to follow in this hot weather.
‘We are confident in the quality of our sun cream and have run the necessary checks to confirm that it has passed all of the required SPF tests and all the ingredients have been made to their precise specification.
‘After seeing Ms Trett’s post on Facebook we have tried to get in touch with her directly.’
