I'm looking for a good sunscreen without all the chemicals, etc that are in the sunscreens at the pharmacy. We're going to Florida at the end of the month and Owen is incredibly fair skinned so I need one that's going to work really well but not be full of crap. Any suggestions?
I have used this sunscreen with my older DD, who has red hair and very fair skin. It has always worked really well. Better, in fact, than Coppertone (she always burned when I put Coppertone on her!). I bought the brand in that link because it was always a bit cheaper at the health food store and it worked well. There is a list of ingredients on that link, too, so you can check for what you're specifically looking for.
Have fun in Florida! My DP is there right now. Lucky guy!
the above sunscreen still uses chemical agents as the sunblock. if you're trying to avoid those, go with a sunblock that uses minerals as a physical sun barrier, like the Alba Chemical-free sunblock or this one: http://www.katescaringgifts.com/Merc...LS_BABY_1_7_OZ
We just starting using one that I really like for Isa when we are out and about in the snow. It's a favorite of a few moms I know.
It's called SUN for Kid's by Alba Botanicals. Not organic but paraben free, though I am not sure about the other ingredients . It's not that expensive either, considering. We like it cause it's great for protection but not too thick and greasy.
Doh! just realized mamamilkers recommended the same thing!
