The Best Sunscreens

Buying the right sunscreen is important. In order to protect your body from harsh sun rays, it is spread all over the largest organ of your body -- your skin. And what goes on your skin goes in your skin, so buying sunscreen made without harmful chemicals, such as retinyl palmitate and oxybenzone, is important. These can be quickly absorbed through your skin, and cause biochemical and cellular level changes.
Instead, I offer you these effective, safer sunscreens, each boasting the low rating of 1 on the Environmental Working Group's SkinDeep Database! They are all SPF 30 (all that you need for the sunniest days), and made with more mineral ingredients rather than chemicals for protection. Make sure to reapply them often, and of course remember to wear hats and try to stay in the shade during the mid-day sun!

  • Badger SPF 30 All Natural Baby Sunscreen Lotion This is my go-to sunscreen for Babygirl and myself! It's made with largely organic ingredients, and is made with non-nano zinc oxide (less likely to be absorbed into the bloodstream). Remember to recycle the #2 plastic tube when you're finished!

Have a sunny summer!
