Is Your Kids Sunscreen Toxic?

When it comes to different sunscreens I am always a little hesitant to put much on my children. The same goes for soaps and shampoos. But I have become more relaxed since the EWG’s beauty database has been so widely available for parents everywhere.

On the EWG site you can look up any different product on the market for your children (and yourself) and the vast majority have been tested with the results listed for the world to see.

With the summer coming, and the need for good sunscreen on children when you are heading out to the beach or even just for a day out… I thought I would put together a short list of some of the least toxic and kid friendly sunscreen options I could find!

If you have any you would like to look up visit the EWG’s skin deep database site.
