Summer Adventures are what I live for! My littles are so fair-skinned that I often refer to them as translucent. The upside to fair skin is since any sun exposure will result in a burn we are sunscreen pros. Other mothers at the park stand stunned when my two year old puts her own sunscreen on excitedly. The secret? Babo Botanicals Clear Zinc Sunscreen. We prefer the SPF30 summer scent, but the fragrance free makes its way into our bags as well. My kids love applying sunscreen with the sport stick because it goes on smooth and rubs in easily. They can effectively cover their faces (& lets be honest, sometimes their bodies) independently. I come along with the lotion for extremities and hard to reach spots. Both the stick and lotion provide excellent coverage.When it comes to Babo Botanicals we love what is missing from its products! Babo Botanicals was made by a mom and specifically designed for the extra sensitive skin of our little ones. You don’t have to take my word for it. The Environmental Working Group gave it the best score (or low health concern). We now know that chemicals found in many sunscreens can also be harmful to our reefs. On May 1, 2018 our former home state, Hawaii, was the first to ban the sale of sunscreen containing these harmful chemicals. We can enjoy our summer Adventures, no matter where they take us, knowing our sunscreen is safe for our skin, but also reef safe or “non-nano”.
Sunscreen is just one form of sun protection. Please remember that avoiding sun exposure is the best form of sun protection you can use for your little loved ones (& yourself). So cover up, sit under an umbrella, wear a hat, wear sunglasses, avoid mid-day sun, wear sunglasses and be sun smart this summer!
