My little dd is highly allergic to gluten. We've been gluten free for almost 2 months! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
We live in FL and it's time for sunscreen (plus we're going on vacation soon) but I'm sooo afraid to buy just any regular brand 'cause I know some lotions also contain hidden gluten.<br><br>
Anybody make their own or know of a good brand that's maybe just zinc oxide and not much else?

My dd has exzema and multiple food allergies, there are a few sunscreens that work. However, I have found that repeatedly applying sunscreen does a number on her skin. I got her a stinger suit <a href="http://www.funsunwear.com" target="_blank">www.funsunwear.com</a> and put swim shoes and hat, and I don't have to worry about sunscreen.

There is a great fabric called Solarveil. It give great sun protection and of course without the risk of a lotion containing something yucky in it.<br><br>
I've made sun jackets for my kids. A friend made shirts for her kids. You can also buy pre-made stuff.<br><br><a href="http://www.solarveil.com" target="_blank">www.solarveil.com</a>
