I'd love to be able to use it, but they lost me with the shea butter and the lavender. Shea may well be an allergen, and I can't stand the smell of lavendar.

I recommend testing it on a small patch of skin before slathering it all over a small child.

Natural and safe are not synonyms.

I love the Badger sunscreen. I'll be getting a tube of it within the next couple days for our beach trip in a week. The price seems to have gone up considerably...I first bought it in August of 2006, for $6. Today in Whole Foods, it was $13.99.

I love all the Badger products we've tried! I'm very happy with them. The illustrations on the packaging are adorable, too.

I've read that stuff causes free radical damage.

We try not to use sun screen by wearing hats, etc. but there are times we use it. So we're looking for the safest sunscreen.

Do a search on it. There are reports out there that it's not safe and there are reports that it IS safe.

I'm finding that this is the norm. If you want something to be safe/healthy you can find evidence to support it. If you want something to be unsafe/unhealthy you can find evidence to support it. I go more on the evidence (looking at both sides) and then my gut feeling on it. If it makes me uneasy to use/eat, I don't use/eat it. If I don't feel uneasy to use/eat it, then I use/eat it.

I have a tube of the Badger 30. It works really well, but I find it to be quite whitening on the skin. Luckily my daughter doesn't care (she's not quite 5 years old). The Badger 15 didn't make my skin too white, but I prefer the 30.

I mainly use UV Naturals because it doesn't have a whitening effect at all.
