Wow--it doesn't get better than this. Just about every ingredient in this block has research proving sunscreening capacity. Although the only ingredient that is "approved" as a sunscreen by the FDA is Zinc Oxide, we are super stoked with the final result and the protection just keeps on keeping on. Remember that sunscreen should never be considered your first defense against sunburn. This is one of the most effective and safe sunscreens on the market today. OK for kids over 6 months. Apply 20-30 minutes before exposure and re-apply after swimming, sweating or as often as you need to prevent burn.

Of the products I tried, this is the one I have not had much opportunity to use. The Sunscreen has an SPF of 30, and is safe for babies over 6 months. It contains some organic ingredients, and like any sunscreen needs to be reapplied during prolonged sun exposure. This one does not have as much of a scent as the other products, but I do love the fact that it totally absorbs into your skin so that you are not left feeling greasy.
