I live in a house full of fair skinned people with blonde hair, so sunscreen is an absolute must around here. If we fail to apply or reapply during the course of the day, I come home with very burned babies. And, those burns today can lead into serious skin consequences later.
Since skipping is not an option, what is needed is something safe to use on the entire crew regularly. “I knew that sunscreen contained chemicals but was surprised at the amount of toxic chemicals listed in the ingredients.” This was not the direction I wanted to head.
“I have read many articles that actually show evidence that there is an increase in cancer when sunscreens are used. “ Instead, of chemicals, I chose to go with a more natural sunscreen option. A non-nano zinc oxide base provides the sun protection needed while the beeswax component makes it waterproof which is vital when dealing with kids.
The best all natural sunscreen we've come across is from Adams Handmade Soap. Click on the link, natural sunscreen, to order yours today.
I have to protect my kids wherever I can. That means sunscreen even when they do not want it. And it also means choosing sunscreen which protects their skin instead of adding chemicals which could be dangerous in the long run. It is just worth it to take a more natural approach.
