How Toxic is Your Sunscreen?

By Danielle |

All safe!

When it comes to picking out a sunscreen for your kids, do you really know what ingredients you should be avoiding? Lets face it, there are so many additives in the products we use these days, who knows exactly what is good and bad for us?

Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) Skin Deep website which is dedicated to sharing a rating on different skin products put out an awesome guide this year to help people recognize, and find the safest sunscreen products to help protect you this summer.

I have always been a fan of their beauty product registry when it comes to looking up the safety of kids soaps and lotions, since I am a firm believer in the idea that anything we put on our children’s skin will be directly absorbed into their body.

Better safe than sorry right?

All of the sunscreens that I have listed below are rated 1 – meaning the safest, least toxic sunscreen options for your kids! Some are popular brands, and some are probably new to you, but all of them have great reviews!

To see the full list of sunscreens on the EWG’s Sunscreen guide, check out this link!

    This is a great guide. I was shocked to learn that the brand I had been using was on the “bad” list.

    Trukid is also rated a “1″ on the EWG safe sunscreen guide. We tried it last year and are repurchasing since it rubs in well with no white residue and a pleasant natural scent.
