I use the badger spf 15 and its FAB!! I ususally get ugly brown marks on my cheeks from the sun in summer, even though I have always worn sun cream every day. So far this summer I have been out and about on my bike and just in general and the with the badger and no marks! And it makes my skin nice and soft too!

It's all natural and perfectly okay to use on an 8 month old. You can purchase it at www.uncommonscents.com. Just click on the link for the Badger Balm products.

I looked all over town for this stuff and nobody had it.
I came close, found a store that previously carried it but they said it didn't move fast enough so they stopped stocking it.

Thanks so much! We went to the beach for the first time and I couldn't stand rubbing all those chemicals all over DS, but I didn't want him sunburned either! This sounds much better.

Is the Badger easy to rub on or is it thick? I've spent a lot of time today online researching sunscreens and this sounds like a good one. I read California Baby is good to but the reveiws mentioned it being thick to apply. I'm planning on getting the Calfornia Baby stick for the face but trying to decide on one for the body. I'd like a spray but it seems they all use bad ingredients.
TIA

I found it WAY easier to apply than California baby. It seems a tad bit oilier, but it soaks in. ANd it's not white at all!

We love it. We use most of the Badger products and they're great!

It's easy to spread on.

At some health foods stores they have open bottles for testers, you can always ask and sometimes they have sample packets to take home. We just went to wild oats and they had testers of most of the sunscreens. I like the badger one. By the time i left my arm was covered in different test strips. My dds got covered in sunscreen free. lol I use california baby and i like it so far. I got my from Lucky Vitamins for pretty cheap.

Did it take long to come from there? They have several things I'd like to order but didn't know if they are good to order from.

I was skeptical as well since it isn't a well known company. But i took my chance and ordered a bunch of stuff i needed. I got the items within 3 days! I will definitely order from them again.

Wow, where did you find it for $12??? They have it listed here: http://www.saffronrouge.com/body-car...nics-sunscreen for $25.

I was interested in it but it's way too expensive for me. Can you pass along where you found it for $12??
Thanks!

That's so weird, I could have sworn it wasn't ranked that high last time I checked. Maybe it changed? Yeah ours didn't last that long. I do like it though. I'm getting uv natural in the co-op, but if I had to buy again at teh store I'd get badger for sure. California baby drives me nuts.

Why didn't you like the California Baby? I think the ewg website just published a new report on sunscreens but I can't get my computer to access the list right now.

The new report includes the sunscreen's effectiveness, and how it lasts in the sun (many break down within a matter of minutes).
My doctor recommended Badger, as that is what he uses on his 3 girls. As far as I am concerned, the expense is worth it for the safest, most effective sunblock out there. Knowing my son is protected when he's outside playing makes it worth every penny

Yeah, except I'd never let my kids play outside because I would be afraid of using up that $12 sunscreen!

I just read yesterday that Trader Joe's has 4 oz. of sunscreen for $3.99. I'll definitely be checking into that.

I've had trouble with all my mineral susncreens actually, b/c we've all gotten color while using them. I'm hoping it's just b/c it's harder to rub in, and maybe I don't put enough on. I know I don't put it on automatically each morning like I used to b/c they're thicker. I"m hoping I like uv natural better.

I wanted to share my experience too. I ordered 7 items and 4 of them came with in a week. I emailed to see where my other items were and was told that they were on backorder with no ETA from the manufacturer (these are cali baby products). There was no indication on the website when I ordered, in my confrimation email, or on my packing slip about them being on back order or where my missing items were. I emailed again this week to see if they had an ETA on when the products would be in and they said it is supposed to be this week. Well, today is Friday and I haven't had a charge to my card nor have I heard from LV.

So, the prices are great, and I may order from them again if I don't need an item immediatly. They did respond with in 24 hours to my emails. But, I still don't have my product which was ordered on May 28th, or any indication on when it may (or may not) arrive.

UPDATE: Of course, after I wrote this all out, when I went to run errands today the package was at my door.

What about the Zinc Oxide that's in the Badger and in UV Natural as well?

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.

This is what I've heard about micronized TO too. suspected of being involved with cellular mutation.
