Technical Foam Services, the UK’s leading convertor of specialist quality foam materials, are proud to announce that we are now working with Solar Buddies in the production of their child-friendly sunscreen applicator.

Part of the Auriella Ltd family, Solar Buddies was launched in 2015 and is the first invention from Laura Griffin and Kelli Aspland, who were named Wales’ Start-up Entrepreneurs’ of the Year for their work on the product.

The applicator was originally designed to help teachers safely apply sun lotion to students without breaching rules around personal contact. It has since become a popular and innovative device for parents across the country.

Taking a baby or toddler to the beach is a challenge without worrying about sunburn, and applying it can often result in a struggle. With the Solar Buddies applicator, sun cream can be rolled on quickly and easily so that families can focus on enjoying days out.

To help develop awareness among children, Solar Buddies have visited schools across the country to encourage Sun Safety by awarding certificates to Solar Safe Schools.

With our vast knowledge of foam and foam processes, Technical Foam Services have produced the foam element of the applicator and look forward to continuing our work with Laura and Kelli on the Solar Buddies project in the future.

For further enquiries, please contact Duncan Geddes on or telephone 01536 443000.
