Safer Baby Sunscreen and Bug Repellant

Posted by Jenna | Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Many of us have heard or believe that it's important to protect our skin from the sun when we can. But what some of us may not have considered is that many of these sunscreens that we put on ourselves and our children actually can cause problems of their own...birth defects and even cancers. The chemicals, like benzophenone, paba (in some), Parabens, and more, in many popular brands like Avon, Banana Boat, Neutrogena...even Aveeno...can have side effect when used.

As summer approaches I began thinking about this more and more . I want to find the best sunscreen for Kaelyn that will be as safe as possible for her skin and little body that are natural and fragrance free...and in my search I have found a few safer possibilities when it comes to sunscreens. I'm looking into California Baby (sunscreen and bug spray) and Lavera baby and children sunscreen.

What do you think? Do you have a suggestion for as safer baby sunscreen? I'd love to hear your thoughts and own experiences.
