bumping this thread...we don't use sunscreen very often....i think it's good to get the D. But for a day when we will be out all day I like to get some...what is the best brand that the whole family can use...from baby up to grandma and that I can find in a regular store like Target or Kmart? Thanks so much!
Anyone NOT use sunscreen? Do you really think it's dangerous to our health? - Page 5
I still want to try coconut oil but wasn't gutsy enough to try it for a day at the beach -- need to try it on a day when we won't get SUPER burned if it doesn't work for us!!
I ended up getting Badger (they sell it at Whole Foods & other places or you can order it on Amazon)... it was the only one I could find around here that didn't have a million chemicals -- just zinc oxide and various oils etc., I understood everything on the label!!
This is what we have used for years and I am very comfortable putting on my LOs.
My son is 14 months and I have never used sunscreen on him. I am just careful that he is not exposed for too long and put a sun hat and long sleeves on to protect him when necessary. Apparently shea butter has a mild SPF of about 6 - havn't tried it yet though - planning on trying it out this summer. I myself haven't used sunscreen in over 5 years. I find that if a gradually spend more and more time in the sun that I get a good tan (which is actually our bodies way of protecting ourselves from the sun) and don't burn. I've had a few mild burns but that's it.
