A good natural sunscreen is important for the youngest to the oldest member of your family. But it’s hard to find healthy, chemical-free sunscreens that don’t turn your skin a freakish white tint, don’t smell funny, don’t act oily, and aren’t hard to apply. Believe me, I’ve tried numerous brands and spent plenty of hard earned dough on tubes of natural sunscreen that I didn’t like. Precious few do it for me, so I completely understand why so many people give up and reach for the unnatural sunscreens that eventually float on the lake and get in my hair like an oil slick. So happy was I when, after trying Vivesana’s Solar to Polar Baby Sunscreen, I discovered it met all my really tough standards.
Vivesana’s Solar to Polar comes in a 40 SPF and a higher 42 SPF, which is perfect for babies, and frankly for anyone who wants to keep their skin free of the harmful rays of the summer sun. Their 42 SPF formula provides the highest non-synthetic protection available, and since there are no chemicals and it’s non-drying, Vivesana is a great choice for even baby’s sensitive skin. And since it’s easy to apply and seems to go further on the skin than many sunscreens I’ve tried, you can get your kid protected with a lot less effort – which is very appreciated both on the part of this mom and her wiggly little 3-year-old who’d rather be making sandcastles than waiting to be slathered in sunscreen.
What I really love about Vivesana is their overall effort to be “green”. They’ve made sure even the tube the suscreen comes in is eco-friendly. In their words, the tube is “safe, sustainable, domestic and BPA-free.” The sunscreen itself is 70% organic and contains no water which provides more effective skin protection. While Vivesana is more expensive than the synthetic brands, the product goes further than most, is safer than most, and in my opinion, is worth the extra money.
