It is sunscreen season. We have suffered our first sunburns. OUCH!
Although humans need to be exposed to the sun for vitamin D absorption, too much of a good thing is bad.
Marie Veronique Organics (MVO) Kid Safe Screen, SPF 25+ is my favorite sunscreen for the whole family, not only because I trust the brand, but the pump spray means I can reach my back all by myself! This is where I burn from all my time leaning over in the garden.
We love MVO’s Kid’s Safe Screen and their full disclosure of ingredients:
For the whole body and the whole family. Protects against the complete UVA/UVB spectrum, naturally, safely and effectively…
No harmful chemicals, nanoparticles, parabens, petroleum products, fillers, waxes or fragrances.
Active ingredient: 20% non-nano zinc oxide
Camellia sinensis (green and white tea), non-nano zinc oxide, capric/capryllic triglycerides (fractionated coconut oil), Helianthus annuus (sunflower oil), Persea americana (avocado oil), MVO butter, vegetable glycerin, potassium sorbate, xantham gum, allantoin, Polyaminopropyl biguanide (Cosmocil CQ), glycine soja lecithin, rosemary oleoresin, Cananga odorata (ylang ylang) essential oil, iron oxides
MVO uses zinc oxide instead of titanium oxide, both of which are approved by the Environmental Working Group (EWG); however, zinc oxide is more stable.
MVO’s Kid Safe Screen has the lowest hard score I have ever seen in a sunscreen product review! EWG gave it a score of only one!
I hope to see this product more widely available! It is the best!
