The problem is getting kids (especially teens) to actually use sunscreen. We all know it’s all about the convenience and finding a brand that blends into your skin.
Every summer I test out non-toxic sunscreens and put together my list of favorite safer sunscreens. I’ve even put together a list of sunscreens that don’t leave a film of white paste behind. The good news is that there are plenty of safer sunscreens to choose from. But they’re almost always a lotion, not a spray.
There’s no denying that despite their convenience, spray sunscreens pose an inhalation risk and may not fully cover your skin (it’s easy to miss a spot). But with some kids and teens we have to pick our battles. Safer spray sunscreens could be the only way to go if we want them to protect their skin from the sun.
If you’re hunting for the safest spray sunscreens here are a few family favorites.
Goddess Garden Organics Kids Sport Spray Sunscreen is our sunscreen of choice for camp this summer. The ingredients are safe and it doesn’t go on thick and white. I love that it comes…
