If yesterday’s 80 degree weather in NYC was any indication of what the rest of spring will be like, then you better stock up on sunblock stat.
It may seem hard to imagine there’s sunscreen out there that isn’t full of chemicals and preservatives, but you’d be surprised. With a little research, you’ll find there actually are eco-friendly sunscreens that also happen to be okay to slather on your child. Here are 3 we like:
Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day products are well-known for being good-smelling as well as good for the earth. Her Baby Blossom sunscreen ($15) uses naturally occurring, organic essential oils to help make this product pure and gentle. Plus, it’s packaged in recycled materials.
Kiss My Face’s natural mineral sunscreen ($13) for kids has no nanoparticles, phthalates, fragrances, artificial colors or any other animal ingredients. Even better, it’s gluten free and biodegradable.
Nature’s Gate Kid’s Block SPF 30 ($8) is paraben-free, and specifically designed with eco-friendly ingredients like aloe vera, bisabalol, and chamomile.
