Great for Sensitive Skin

Posted

Pros: Fair Trade, Organic

Cons: allergy risk, oily residue

I use Dr. Bronner's coconut oil during the winter instead of typical baby lotions. There is only one ingredient and its organic/fair trade. The only problem with using it is if you have an allergy to coconut. Since my son and I have sensitive skin its really nice to have a moisturizer that doesn't clog our pores especially during the winter.

Best Baby Sunscreen

Posted

Pros: Lots of botanicals and vit E, non-nano uncoated zinc oxide, certified organic, BPA and pthalate free recycled packaging, Biodegradable

Cons: Smells like zinc oxide if you're not getting in the water

I love everything about this product. I bought it for my son last summer and still have quite a bit left. my son and I have very sensitive skin and most moisturizers break us out but even as thick as the badger sunscreen is it has never caused a problem for us. The sunscreen goes on VERY thick (you are supposed to apply liberally) and smells ok at first but if you are not getting in the water or sweating the zinc oxide begins to react with our skin oils and gets a really metallic smell. That aside, I have NEVER had a sunburn using this product and I am fair skinned and burn within 5 minutes of exposure. It has even helped keep me from getting a severe burn the next day.
