When summer hits, it’s time for your children to lather up the sunscreen. Whether your child is at the beach, taking a stroll around town, or in the backyard, sunscreen is a definite must. When choosing a sunscreen, you’ll want to choose one that is at least SPF 30 that screens both UVA and UVB rays.
Families that go through a ton of sunscreen, oftentimes choose brands that are a good bargain and might not know any difference. It’s important to stay away from sunscreens that are made up of these primarily ingredients: oxybenzone, phthalates, parabens and octinoxate. These ingredients are toxic to the body as they will absorb into the skin and into the bloodstream.
