KINeSYS sunscreen has been voted the safest and most effective sunscreen by the Cosmetics Databaseafter investigated over 1000 sunscreens. KINeSYS is also a proud signer of The Compact for Safe Cosmetics and strives to be a carbon neutral company. Their bottles are even made from 100% recyclable, BPA free plastic and they avoid excess packaging whenever possible.
KINeSYS makes several types of sunscreen designed with kids in mind, including the all new SPF 30 Girl Sunscreen Spray which is rich in Vitamin E and smells like vanilla and green tea. My daughter and I are totally loving this one.
They also have Kids Funscreen SPF 30, regular Kids SPF Sunscreen Spray, and KINeSYS SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray for anyone with a light mango scent or unscented.
The sunscreens are available in creams or spray on formulas (I prefer the sprays, less mess) and the products are oil-free and alcohol free. The sprays are non-aerosol.
KINeSYS has won several awards including Mom’s Best Award 2008, Parent Tested Parent Approved Award 2008, and the iParenting Media Award for one of the best products of 2008. That’s impressive though I didn’t see any eco or green awards on their roster but I suppose better and safer is better than the alternative.
It is really hard to know what is safe and what is the best in this crazy mediasphere where every expert says something different. I guess the best advice I can offer for anything is trust your gut and trust someone you trust to give you good advice.
Myself and my children are all fair skinned and when we don’t want to be bundled up like mummies we need some kind of sun protection so we don’t turn into lobsters.
So far KINeSYS offers the safest, best choice. I trust the cosmetics database, so until I learn otherwise or find something better I’ll be trusting KINeSYS.
My family used KINeSYS on Saturday and loved it. No greasy oily residue, it smelled great, and was super easy to use.
