baby sunscreen

My 6 month old is finally old enough for sunscreen
. I'm wondering what everyone's favourite physical baby sunscreen is? (Physical is zinc and titanium dioxide). I have a banana boat sunscreen that I'm not very fond of. I tried it on myself and find it doesn't go on smoothly. Can't imagine trying to rub that all over my baby.

Aveeno baby is a good one

Neutrogena Kids on Jul 22, 2015 @ 09:45 am

We've all been using the Neutrogena Beach Defense Kids Sunscreen in our house. I used it on my baby when he was 6 month without any problems. We spend a lot of time at the wading pool and its nice to have a waterproof sunscreen that's SPF 65. Plus its $15.00 some of the products geared to kids can be expensive.

I know Aveeno contains chemical sunscreen and I don't think that's safe at this time. Neutrogena I'm not sure about since I can't find an ingredient list anywhere. I'm assuming it's not a physical sunscreen since it has helioplex in it to provide stability. That's only a concern with chemical sunscreens.

Thanks though for your input as to what you use. Anyone else know a good and easy to apply physical sunscreen?

I've used only Aveeno and have not a bad word to say about it.

Use Products that have an EWG rating on Aug 11, 2015 @ 09:23 am

I recommend you to arm yourself with products listed on EWG’s Best Sunscreens, SPF-rated moisturizers In there, you will find many sunscreens that have been approved as safe for your babies skin.

EWG (Environmental Working Group) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment through breakthrough research and education.

Their Sunscreen Guide for 2015 – finds persistent problems with the ingredients and marketing of sunscreens. 80 percent of products they examined this year offer inferior sun protection or contain worrisome ingredients like oxybenzone and vitamin A that can be harmful to yours or your babies health.

Hope this helps!
