Which Sunscreens Are Safe? Top 5 Sunscreens for Kids

Summer Fun

Summer is coming, and warm weather means days outside ? at the park, at the beach, or just exploring the backyard or the neighbourhood. We know our kids’ delicate skin needs sunscreen, we just never know which ones are best for them.

We did some research and found five great kid-friendly sunscreens that we will keep tucked in our purse, by the front door, in our kids’ backpacks, in our first aid kit and even in the picnic basket (you can never be too prepared.)

Badger Baby Sunscreen with Camomile Badger Baby Sunscreen with Camomile & Calendula
This mildly scented, ultra moisturizing SPF 30 sunscreen is formulated to be totally safe for babies and the environment. But, who says it’s just for baby? We love it too.Badger Baby Sunscreen with Chamomile & Calendula, $20. Available at http://well.ca.
Aveeno Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Stick Aveeno Baby Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Stick
Fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, oil-free, waterproof and with an SPF of 50, this mini-stick packs a whole lot of sun protection.

Available at most major drugstores and Target.
Thinkbaby Safe Sunscreen Thinkbaby Safe Sunscreen
