Good Questions: Organic Sunscreen

The summer sun is almost here, and Kelly has a great question for us: "Does anyone have recommendations for a safe, non-toxic sunscreen for this baby? I hate to use some of the products out there...

Thanks for the question Kelly, and we love the picture! Who wouldn't want to protect that face? And you're absolutely right to want to find a natural sunscreen- it's amazing how many toxic chemicals we're often rubbing into our skin.

We came upon UV Natural Lotion the other day in ABC Carpet and Home, of all places. UV Baby was and is the only lotion safe for babies under 6 months. It has an SPF of 30 and strengthens healthy skin cell growth.

A great resource for cosmetic/skin product safety is the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep site. Click here for a list and safety rating of baby sunscreens.

Anyone else have suggestions for Kelly and Ari?
