It is finally spring in Brooklyn, and we’ve all got sunscreen on the brain. At Gimme the Good Stuff, we’ve been working to update our Safe Sunscreen Guide, and I’ve just finished it today!
The updated sunscreen guide discusses my feelings on sunscreen versus sun exposure in general, why “mineral” sunscreens aren’t necessarily safe, and the worst chemical sunscreen ingredients (which are often found even in “natural” brands).
The guide also identifies:
- five new Good Stuff-approved brands;
- two more Bad Stuff brands;
- another four Sneaky Stuff brands.
Honest Company, Seventh Generation, BabyGanics, Babo Botanicals, Badger, Earth’s Best…you might be surprised to learn who is Good and who is Sneaky!
I hope this updated guide will make choosing a truly non-toxic sunscreen for your kids (and yourself) a little bit less intimidating.
Enjoy the sun and stay sane,
