Ever try putting sunscreen lotion on a child? We have. It’s like herding cats made more difficult by gooey hands. Enter our SPF 30 Sunscreen Stick. The non-nano zinc oxide is easy to apply and easy to rub in thanks to its 100% certified organic and biodegradable inactive ingredients like coconut oil and beeswax. Certified organic vanilla extract makes it smell like cookies – which just might be tempting enough to make your kids stay put while you apply it. Unlike cookies, it is free of common allergens like soy, gluten, dairy, and corn. Because it was originally formulated for use in water sports, you can rest assured that your little beach bums will be protected by this very water resistant sunscreen for up to 80 minutes. Safe for kids 0 and up, but you should consult your physician before applying to infants under six months of age. Spending time in the sun increases your risk for skin cancer and premature aging. Sunscreen is only effective at reducing this risk when it is applied and then reapplied. Reapply it every 80 minutes. Don’t apply it to damaged or broken skin. If it gets in eyes, rinse with water. Don’t expose it to excessive heat – it will melt.
I have been using this mineral sunscreen on my two kiddos ages 2 and 4, and also on myself for the past week and really liking the formula and the stick application. My favorite part about this sunscreen is how easy it is to apply and how mess free it is. When you are on the go, this is perfect form of application. The scent is so pleasant - just a touch of sweet vanilla! Absolutely no sticky feeling afterwards, I am really happy with this product.
