Soleve Sunburn Relief Cutaneous Emulsion

Soleve Sunburn Relief Cutaneous Emulsion relieves the pain of mild to moderately sunburnt skin and moisturises the skin to aid healing. Suitable for adults, the elderly and children over the age of 12 years, it contains two active ingredients:
  • Ibuprofen: a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID) to relieve pain.
  • Isopropyl Myristate: An emollient which soothes and moisturises your skin by trapping moisture in the skin.
For best results, start using Soleve Sunburn Relief Cutaneous Emulsion as soon as possible after you notice the first sign of sunburn – usually skin redness.


  • To use the lotion (for adults, the elderly and children over 12 years old):
  • Use as soon as possible after the first sign of sunburn. Lightly apply the lotion to the affected areas and massage gently into the skin.
  • Use the lotion at regular intervals, up to eight times a day, leaving at least two hours between applications.
  • The lotion spreads very easily (a little goes a long way) and you will not need to apply very much. The amount needed depends on the area which is sunburnt, but as a very rough guide, an amount ranging from a 1 penny piece to a 2 penny piece will usually be sufficient.
  • Do not apply more than 12ml at a time, or more than 100ml a day. As a guide, one and a half capfuls is approximately 12ml.
  • Wash hands after use, unless treating them.
  • The lotion is designed to resist being washed off whilst swimming or bathing.
  • Use the lotion for a maximum of two to three days, by which time your symptoms should have subsided.
  • If your symptoms worsen, or continue for more than a few days, you should consult a doctor or pharmacist.
  • Where Soleve is used on children, it should always be applied by an adult.
If you forget to use this product, do not apply a double amount of Soleve to make up for a forgotten application. Apply it when you remember, then allow at least 2 hours before the next
application. If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.


  • Active Ingredients: Ibuprofen (1% w/w) and isopropyl myristate (10% w/w).
  • Other Ingredients: Coconut oil, carbomers, sorbitan laurate, 2-diethylaminoethanol, phenoxyethanol and purified water. 


  • Soleve is not a sunscreen or sunblock and will not protect your skin from the sun.
  • Do not expose the treated areas to the sun until they are completely better.
  • Soleve is for short-term use to relieve sunburn and should not be used as a general aftersun lotion.
  • Use it only on the skin.
  • Keep the lotion away from the eyes, nostrils and mouth.
  • Interaction between Soleve and blood pressure lowering drugs and anticoagulants (medicines that stop blood clotting) is possible, in theory, although very unlikely. If you would like more advice about this, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Do not use Soleve lotion at the same time as any other medicines (including medicines obtained without prescription) containing ibuprofen, aspirin or any other NSAIDs.
  • Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines including other medicines obtained without prescription.
  • The product may cause irritation if it comes into contact with broken skin or gets into the eyes, nostrils or mouth. If this happens, rinse the affected areas with plenty of water. If rinsing one eye, take care to avoid washing product into the other eye. If irritation persists, tell your doctor or pharmacist.
  • If the lotion is swallowed by a baby or young child, contact a doctor or hospital straight away.
  • For adults, if the lotion is swallowed and you experience any symptoms such as headache, vomiting, drowsiness or dizziness, contact a doctor or hospital straight away. 
Do not use Soleve Sunburn Relief Cutaneous Emulsion:
  • If the sunburn is severe. Seek medical advice immediately if you have symptoms of severe sunburn including blistered skin, intense pain, intolerance of any contact with clothing, fever, chills, feeling sick and extreme exhaustion or lack of energy, seek medical advice.
  • If a large proportion of the body surface is involved. As a general guide, seek medical advice immediately if more than one tenth (1/10) of a child's body surface (e.g. more than the equivalent area of the forehead, plus shoulders and tops of both arms), or if more than one fifth (1/5) of an adult's body surface (e.g. more than the equivalent area of both thighs and knees, plus shoulders and tops of both arms) has been burned.
  • If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to ibuprofen, isopropyl myristate or any of the other ingredients.
  • If you are asthmatic, or suffer from rhinitis (allergic runny nose) or urticaria (hives) and have ever had a bad reaction to aspirin, ibuprofen or other NSAIDs in the past.
  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • On infected, diseased, broken or damaged skin (this includes skin with sunburn blisters).
  • On children under 12 years (parents should seek advice from a doctor or pharmacist if anyone under this age is sunburnt).
Before applying this product for the first time, make sure it is suitable for you to use. Because Soleve is applied directly to the skin, there is less risk of the complications that sometimes occur when ibuprofen (or a similar anti-inflammatory painkiller) is taken by mouth. However, in rare cases you may be at more risk of complications. If any of the following apply to you, only use this product on advice from your doctor or pharmacist:
  • You have a stomach ulcer (also called a peptic or gastric ulcer).
  • You have ever had kidney problems.
  • You have ever had asthma.
  • You have ever had a bad reaction to aspirin or ibuprofen taken by mouth.
